Six die after bus driver's throat slashed
MANCHESTER, Tenn. (AP) - A passenger on a
Greyhound bus cut the driver's throat yesterday,
causing a crash that killed six of the 40 people
aboard and prompted Greyhound to temporarily halt
service nationwide. The driver told authorities the
attacker used a box cutter.
The driver was treated for a cut to his neck and
was stable after surgery, a hospital official said. The
attacker, who had a Croatian passport, was kill.ed, the
"He just went up to the bus driver and, like, slit his
throat, and the driver turned the wheel and the bus
tipped over," passenger Carly Rinearson told Nashville
TV station WTVF by cell phone from the crash site.
The crash happened on Interstate 24 near Manches-
ter, 50 miles southeast of Nashville. The bus originat-
ed in Chicago with a final destination of Orlando, Fla.,
Greyhound spokesman Mike Lake said.
Six people died at the scene, and the 34 others on
board were injured, said Dana Keeton, a Tennessee
Department of Safety spokeswoman.
Greyhound initially said 10 people had died, but
Israel cautions Arafat
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) - A
week-old truce was in danger of unrav-
eling as Israeli tanks rolled into Pales-
tinian farmland yesterday and shelled a
string of police posts, killing six Pales-
tinians in retaliation for a lethal raid on
a Jewish settlement by Islamic mili-
Israel also called off meetings with
the Palestinians and declared it was not
moving ahead with cease-fire commit-
ments until Palestinian leader Yasser
Arafat arrests militants responsible for
attacks on Israelis.
The Palestinians said the Israeli
actions were a grave violation of last
week's truce deal, which called for
Israel to suspend military strikes and
halt incursions into Palestinian territo-
ry. But Arafat's Palestinian Authority
condemned the attack on the settle-
ment and said it would bring those
responsible to justice.

NEWS IN BRIEF
ARUDHEADLINES FROM AOU D TE ORLD
Wall Street sees best day since attacks
Wall Street had its first truly upbeat day since the terrorist attacks, surging
yesterday on a positive outlook from Cisco Systems and the possibility of a
multi-billion-dollar economic stimulus package. The Dow industrials closed
above 9,000 for the first time in three weeks.
The market waffled in early trading but rose decisively as President Bush in
televised remarks in New York urged Congress to approve a plan to stimulate the
economy, already quite weak before the assaults. The plan includes tax cuts for
individuals and business and is worth $60 billion and $75 billion.
Stocks, especially high-techs, widened their lead in midafternoon trading after
Cisco chief executive John Chambers affirmed the company's outlook. The
upturn on Wall Street added to a rally Tuesday triggered in part by the ninth
interest rate cut so far this year.
"People are believing that between fiscal and monetary policy, the economy
will stabilize," said Arthur Hogan, chief market analyst at Jefferies & Co.
The Dow surged 173.19, closing yesterday at 9,123.78, having risen 113 Tues-
day after the Federal Reserve cut rates by half a percentage point.
Yesterday was the first time the Dow has broken the 9,000 level since Sept.
18; it hadn't closed above 9,000 since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Giuliani will not seek third term as mayor
Mayor Rudolph Giuliani will not press for a third term after all, but he repeat-
ed his offer yesterday to stay on for an extra three months to guide the city
through the aftermath of the World Trade Center attack.
"I'm not going to be on the ballot," Giuliani said. "I'm available to do the tran-
sition I offered to do. If people support it, fine."
Giuliani, a Republican, is barred by the City Charter from serving more than
two terms and is scheduled to leave office Dec. 31. However, he has talked with
legislative leaders about extending his stay or lifting term limits altogether so that
he could run for a third term.
The leader of New York's Conservative Party, Michael Long, had offered Giu-
liani his party's line on the November ballot while the mayor sought repeal of the
But Giuliani rejected the offer, despite supporters who were "begging me to
stay in the run for another term."
"It would lead to division and litigation and the city does not need division and
litigation at this time," he said.
ask for more security
Winter Olympics organizers came to
Capitol Hill to press for money for
enhanced security measures and to
promise a safe gathering in Salt Lake
City in February.
The heightened security, including
more metal detectors, video surveil-
lance and plainclothes federal agents,
will cost up to $40 million more, the
organizers said yesterday.
The additional funding would bring
federal spending on the Games to about
$310 million - more than three times
the federal-security spending for the
1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.
Salt Lake Organizing Committee
President Mitt Romney, Utah Gov. Mike
Leavitt and Utah's entire congressional
delegation met in a closed-door session
with House Speaker Dennis Hastert,
Attorney General John Ashcroft and the
heads of the FBI, the Secret Service and
other agencies to discuss security.
Most businesses lack
formal disaster plan
With federal officials warning that
there might be more terrorist attacks, a
national survey has found that only
about half of American businesses have

Kristin Bowl, spokeswoman for the

to develop detailed plans for moving
