In petitions for review of the BIA's denial of petitioners' asylum applications, the petitions are denied where: 1) the murders of petitioners' family members were not persecution within the meaning of 8 U.S.C. section 1101(a)(42)(A) because they were not committed by the government; and 2) petitioners did not claim they were persecuted on account of race, religion, nationality, or political opinion.
