    WASHINGTON - With Iran stepping up its nuclear program, a top White House aide said Sunday the world finally is "worried and suspicious" over the Iranians' intentions and is determined not to let Tehran produce a nuclear weapon. National security adviser Condoleezza Rice also said the Bush administration sees a new international willingness to act against Iran's nuclear program. She credited the changed attitude to the Americans' insistence that Iran's effort put the world in peril.

    AN FRANCISCO (AP) - At the prodding of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, California's attorney general asked the state's top court Friday to stop San Francisco from issuing same-sex marriage licenses until the justices decide whether the weddings are legal. Attorney General Bill Lockyer has been under fire from every side since San Francisco, under the directive of Mayor Gavin Newsom, began issuing marriage licenses to gay couples two weeks ago. The city has performed more than 3,400 weddings since then. Lockyer asked the Supreme Court to instruct San Francisco officials to stop issuing same-sex marriage licenses until the justices rule, and...

    DOHA, Qatar (AP) - Chechnya's exiled former president, wanted by Russia for terrorism and ties to al-Qaida, was assassinated Friday when a bomb blew apart his car as he left a mosque with his teenage son. Russia's security services denied any involvement in the death of Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev, 51. But a Chechen rebel group called the slaying "the latest bloody Kremlin crime." Yandarbiyev's 13-year-old son was critically wounded in the 12:45 p.m. blast after prayers in the capital, Doha, according to an Interior Ministry statement and Hamad General Hospital. The white SUV was demolished by the blast. A body lay...

    Heard of Watergate? Get ready for Lowellgate. On Sept. 18, 1972, the evening before the primary election during his second attempt for Congress, Kerry's brother Cameron and one Thomas Vallely, both part of his current campaign team, were arrested by Lowell police at 1:40 a.m. and charged with breaking and entering with the intent to commit larceny. The two were apprehended in the basement of a building whose door had been forced open, police said. It housed the headquarters of candidate DiFruscia. The Watergate scandal was making headlines at this time, and it was called the Lowell Watergate. "They wanted...

    Dems’ charge against Medicare ads boomerangs; ad firm has Dem ties By Sam Dealey Democratic lawmakers renewed their calls yesterday that Bush administration ads touting changes in the Medicare law enacted last year be halted until their propriety is investigated. The minority lawmakers question both their timing and accuracy, and point to a Republican-oriented firm’s production of the ads as evidence that the media campaign is merely an extension of President Bush’s re-election drive. “The administration chose to use the media team that is part of the Team Bush re-election,” said Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) at a press conference. “They...

    Mother suing after son's offering confiscated, sent to superintendent Posted: February 10, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com Kindergartners at a public school in Oregon were invited to bring cards to a Christmas party, but a teacher barred one student from distributing his holiday greeting because it mentioned Jesus Christ, prompting a lawsuit filed yesterday. The Gresham-Barlow district near Portland said Justin Cortez could not distribute the Christmas card because it would violate district policies prohibiting school officials from promoting one religion over another and advocating a particular religious position.

    Demonstrators confronted Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry last night to warn he cannot be a Catholic in good standing and support abortion. At a campaign event at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., near Washington, the pro-life American Life League rallied sign-waving protesters in an attempt to convince Kerry to "mend his ways," said the group's spokesman, Joseph R. Giganti. The ALL's Crusade for the Defense of our Catholic Church was responding to recent comments by the Massachusetts senator, whose primary victories last night in Virginia and Tennessee bolstered his commanding lead over Democratic rivals.

    WTO Formally Grants Iraq Observer Status By NAOMI KOPPEL ASSOCIATED PRESS GENEVA (AP) - Iraq was formally approved Wednesday as an observer to the World Trade Organization - a first step to gaining membership in the body. The WTO's ruling General Council agreed by consensus to accept the Iraqi application. Observer status gives the nation the right to attend meetings and hold some talks with WTO member countries. Observers have no formal say in decisions by the body, which sets rules on international trade, but neither are they bound by them. Ahmad al-Mukhtar, director general of foreign economic relations at...

    MOSCOW (AP) - A Saudi-born warrior so zealously Muslim that he's traumatized by even touching nonbelievers has risen to the top echelon of rebels in Chechnya, Russian officials and rebel sources say, a symbol of how a once-secular fight has come under the influence of radical Islam. To the Russian security services, the rebel commander known as Abu Walid embodies Chechnya's place in the chain of international terrorism - a connection they stress to win Western support for their military campaign in the southern Russian region. He has surfaced as a suspect in myriad terrorist attacks in Russia, from the...

    QUSAYBAH, Iraq — The young Saudi drifted about the lawless Iraqi-Syrian border in the chaotic aftermath of the fall of Saddam Hussein, seeking a place where he could channel his urge for holy war. He made it to a training camp in the immense desert of western Iraq, U.S. officials say, before infiltrating the country's Sunni Muslim heartland. He was captured late last year, the sole survivor of a squad of three Arabs from outside Iraq who launched a virtual suicide attack on a U.S. checkpoint east of here. Military officials say Mohammed Kadir Hussen's odyssey from his hometown, Jidda,...
