He was in stable condition at a Miami-area hospi-

that lodge in the upper respiratory tract are less dan-

Reynolds said authorities may never know
whether he actually had anthrax because antibiotics

Anthrax can be contracted from farm animals or
soil, but the bacterium is not normally found among
the wildlife or livestock in Florida. Stevens was
described as an avid outdoorsman and gardener.
"When you have two cases in the same building

the environment," Reynolds said, reading a statement
from CDC Director Jeffrey Koplan. -

MILAN, Italy
Terrorism ruled out in crash killing 114
An SAS airliner slammed into a private jet during takeoff, then swerved into an
airport building and burst into flames, killing all 114 people on both planes yester-
day, officials said. Four ground workers were missing.
The Interior Ministry ruled out terrorism and said the crash was most likely the
result of human error and poor visibility from the heavy morning fog at Milan's
Linate airport.
The small jet, a Cessna carrying four people, entered the takeo If runway by mis-
take after air traffic control directed it to taxi to a different runway, the Interior Min-
istry said in a written statement.
The SAS plane, an MD-87 carrying 104 passengers, six crew members and a full
tank of fuel, was accelerating for takeoff when it hit the twnengine Cessna Cita-
tion II, which had taxied onto the takeoff runway, said Alessandra Tripodi, a
spokeswoman at the central government's office in Milan. The SAS airliner then hit
a baggage handling depot and caught on fire, the Interior Ministry said.
Transport Minister Pietro Lunardi put the death toll at 114 - all 110 from the
SAS flight and four from the Cessna - with four ground workers missing. Fifty-
six of the SAS victims were Italians, 16 were Danes and two others were foreigners
living in Denmark, Italian and Danish officials said.
PLO declares state of emergency after riots
Crowds of Palestinian supporters of Osama bin Laden attacked their own security
forces in the Gaza Strip yesterday in the most violent challenge to Yasser Arafat's
administration since shortly after it was established in 1994. At least two people
were reported killed and scores injured after police opened fire.
As rioting spread yesterday evening, the Palestinian Authority declared a state of
emergency in the Gaza Strip, an impoverished 147-square-mile band of territory
fenced off by Israel. Hundreds of police officers carrying clubs patrolled the streets,
all demonstrations were outlawed and Gaza's two main universities were ordered
The demonstrations were triggered by the U.S.-led attack on Afghanistan and
Palestinian sympathy for bin Laden, the suspected terrorist mastermind who praised
the Palestinian cause in a taped statement broadcast worldwide after the attacks
began Sunday night. Simmering anger with Arafat's leadership also appeared to be
fueling the protests.
Arafat had ordered his police forces to quash any demonstrations sympathetic to
bin Laden, to maintain U.S. support and distance himself from extremism.

Russian sub raised

In an immaculate and unprece-
dented salvage effort, the sunken
Kursk nuclear submarine was
raised from the Barents Sea floor
yesterday and began its final jour-

jumbo barge.
Salvage crew members who were
prepared for the worst drew a deep
sigh of relief after the trouble-free lift-
ing, which followed more than four
months of technical problems and

FAA imposes new
restrictions on bags i
Airline passengers are now limited
to one carry-on bag and one pocket-
book or briefcase each.
The new restrictions were announced
yesterday as airline security already was
at its highest level because of last
month's terrorist attacks. The Federal
Aviation Administration again warned
airports about security following Sun-
day's attacks on Afghanistan.
The limits on carry-on bags extend
the restrictions imposed on passengers
to and from Reagan Washington
National Airport when it reopened last
week. Except for flights to and from
National, there had lbeen no govern-
ment limits on carry-on bags.
The restrictions are designed to
enable screeners at security checkpoints
to spend more time checking passengers
and bags. Electronic devices such as
laptops and cell phones may be subject
to additional screening, the FAA said.
