Singer arrested

NEW YORK (Reuter) - A St Louis prosecutor vowed to arrest Axl Rose, lead singer of the Guns 'N' Roses band, in every city on his coming concert tour if he fails to surrender in St Louis on charges stemming from a 1991 concert riot there. Rose was arrested on Sunday in New York (above) when he arrived by Concorde from France. He was released on dollars 100,000 ( pounds 53,000) bail after 11 hours in custody and a brief court appearance
