Games: World chess lowlights

We have already published all the games from the Anand-Karpov world chess championship final in Lausanne. What we have today is the edited lowlights.

Games: Chess; the World Chess Championship

The top two players on the current international rating list - Kasparov and Kramnik - may be absent from the world championship, but their understudies have been putting on such a splendid show that they have hardly been missed. We should also remember that with the apparent demise of Kasparov's Professional Chess Association, the Fide (International Chess Federation) world championship is now the only proper competition for the title. After three games of the final, which is now being played in Lausanne, Viswanathan Anand and Anatoly Karpov - ranked third and fourth in the world respectively - are level at 11/2 points each. The first two games, which resulted in one win for each player, were full of excitement.

Stalemate in chess match

Michael Adams, for England, and Viswanathan Anand (India) stand level at one-and-a-half points each after three games of the semi-finals of the Fide (International Chess Federation) World Chess Championships in Groningen, in the Netherlands. All three games have been drawn. Anand had the advantage of the white pieces in the final game of the match today.

Swiss sterilisation scandal

Swiss women's groups reacted with shock and outrage to revelations by a historian that doctors sterilised mentally handicapped patients against their will under a law passed in 1928. Hans Ulrich Jost, a professor of history at the University of Lausanne, told Swiss television that many Swiss people - nine out of 10 of them women - were affected by the campaign in the French-speaking western canton of Vaud. He said that a copy of the law, which was passed in Vaud in 1928, was requested by Adolf Hitler in 1934 as a basis for Nazi Germany's own racist legislation.
