The world briefly Pakistani officials believe bin Laden deputy surrounded near border ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistani forces believe they have cornered and perhaps wounded Osama bin Laden's deputy, Ayman al- Zawahri, in a battle near the Afghan border, three senior Pakistani officials said Thursday, the first 'major break in the world's most intense manhunt in more than a year. Hundreds of troops and paramilitary rangers pounded several fortress-like mud- brick compounds with artillery and fired on them from helicopter gunships, as entrenched suspects fought back hard in the mountainous region. An intelligence official said "dozens" were killed Thursday. The officials told The Associated Press that intelligence indicated the forces had surrounded the Egyptian-born al-Zawahri in an operation that began Tuesday in South Waziristan, a semiautonomous tribal belt long believed the most likely hiding place for the top two al- Qaida leaders. There was no indication bin Laden was with al-Zawahri. However, the two have traveled together in the past, and bin Laden and al-Zawahri appeared jointly in video tapes released shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States. Suicide bombers kill at least 660 in Iraq strikes this past year ISKANDARIYAH, Iraq (AP) — Thousands of people in Iraq have suffered from suicide bombings — a phenomenon unknown here until after the U.S.-led war toppled Saddam Hussein's regime nearly a year ago. The cycle began nine days after fighting erupted, and has claimed at least 660 lives — far more than in 3 1/2 years of Israel-Palestinian suicide attacks — according to U.S. military officials. The majority of victims are Iraqis, the U.S. military said. Iraqi officials and police put the death toll higher by at least 100. In the past year, there have been at least 24 suicide bombings, including four where more than one attacker struck at the same target, according to an Associated Press tally and interviews with officials. In comparison, since September 2000, 474 people — the majority Israelis — have been killed in 112 Palestinian suicide bombings. Bush says nations can't live trying to appease terrorists FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) — Challenged at home and overseas on Iraq, President Bush warned Thursday that terrorists can never be appeased and said there is no safety for any nation that "lives at the mercy of gangsters and mass murderers." A week after the Madrid bombings that killed more than 200 people and contributed to the fall of a pro- U.S. government, Bush urged free nations to stand united and "fight until this enemy is broken." Spain is moving to pull its troops out of Iraq, and Poland complained Thursday that it was misled about the threat from Saddam Hussein's supposed weapons of mass destruction. Bush's handling of Iraq is a dominant issue in the presi- BBQ Chicken Salad Absolutely Delicious! Matt Hun & dential campaign, where Democratic rival John Kerry accuses the president of pursuing failed policies that have alienated allies and put American soldiers unnecessarily at risk. In polls, Americans are split over Bush's Iraq policy. Overseas, it has caused .bitter divisions among allies. Police arrest five more suspects one week after Spain bombings MADRID, Spain (AP) — Police arrested five more people in the Madrid train bombings as the death toll rose Thursday to 202, making the blasts — along with the 2002 Bali nightclub blasts — the worst terrorist strike since the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States. The arrests brought to 11 the total suspects in Spanish custody and came as the country marked a week since the bombings that shocked Europe, led to a stunning election defeat for the government and roiled Madrid's relations with the United States. In Morocco, police also rounded up associates of Jamal Zougam, a key suspect in the train bombings with alleged al-Qaida ties. The death of a 22-year-old Peruvian woman increased the toll in the attacks to 202 — the same number killed by bombings in Bali, Indonesia, in October 2002. Nearly 3,000 people died in the Sept. 11 attacks carried out by Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida network.

Free recorded message 1-866-256-0166 ID#1012 n«llyworidicl»r Polish leader assails prewar Iraq intelligence in a shift of tone WARSAW, Poland (AP) — President Aleksander Kwasniewski, a key U.S.* ally, said Thursday that Poland was "misled" about whether Saddam Hussein's regime had weapons of mass destruction and was considering withdrawing troops from Iraq several months early. The remarks came as polls show about half of Poles are opposed to involvement in Iraq and after deadly bombings in Madrid — possibly by al-Qaida in retaliation for Spain's alliance with the United States — triggered fears of a terror attack on Polish soil. Kwasniewski's comments were the first by a Polish leader to raise doubts about the intelligence behind the decision for going to war. He tempered them by stressing that Poland is not about to abandon its mission in Iraq, and said Iraq was a better place without Saddam. "But naturally I also feel uncomfortable due to the fact that we were misled with the information on weapons of mass destruction," Kwasniewski told French reporters, according to a transcript released by his press office. GOP senator steps on his party's criticism of Kerry over defense WASHINGTON (AP) — Arizona Sen. John McCain, arguably the Democrats' favorite Republican, managed to step all over the OOP's carefully honed message of the week Thursday by rejecting the notion that John Kerry is weak on defense. President Bush and his campaign apparatus have gone to great effort to suggest the Democratic presidential contender would be an unfit •commander in chief, picking apart his Senate voting record on weapons and defense spending. Asked on two morning TV shows Thursday whether he thought Kerry was weak on defense, the Arizona senator was quick to bat down the suggestion. McCain said the senator would have to explain his voting record but he also told NBC's "Today" show: "No, I See BRIEFLY, Page A-13 PEACE CArt PROJf a Hours: Men-Dinner 5*0-830PM Tue-Fri 1130-2.-OOPM fee • Ifctn - Dinner 5:30-8:30 PM Fri/Sat Dinner 5:30-9:OOPM Between South State & School Street 111 West Church Street Ukiah, CA 95482 (707) 462-2422 Phone Now open Monday's nights!
