'Lion's share'

no

longer in custody

WASHINGTON (AP) - Most of the
people arrested on unrelated criminal
charges by investigators probing the
Sept. 11 attacks have been released, the
White House said yesterday.
"The lion's share of the people are not
still in custody," said White House
spokesman Ari Fleischer. "The over-
whelming number of the people were
detained, they were questioned and then
they've been released."
The White House later said Fleischer
was referring only to those detained on
unrelated criminal charges. But neither
the White House nor the Justice Depart-
ment would say how many of the more
than 1,000 people arrested or detained
so far remain in custody.
That prompted new complaints from
civil liberties groups.
"The secrecy surrounding them is
unacceptable," said Lucas Guttentag,
director of the immigrants' rights
project at the American Civil Liber-
ties Union.
"In order for the public to have confi-
dence in the fairness of the investigation

and make sure individual rights are pre-
served, the government needs to dis-
close more,' he said.
The ACLU has filed a Freedom of'
Information Act request for information
on those detained in connection with the
investigation.
Justice Department spokeswoman
Mindy Tucker said grand jury secrecy
rules and judges' orders prevent the
department from releasing information.
Records on those facing unrelated crim-
inal charges are available from state and
local law enforcement agencies, she
said.
Investigators have detained or arrest-
ed 1,147 people since the suicide hijack-'
ings as part of a massive dragnet to find
associates of the hijackers and track
down terrorists planning additional
attacks.
Department officials have released
daily figures about the number of people
in custody but in most cases have not
disclosed their names, where they are
being held or whether they have been
released.L

WASHINGTON
Anthrax removed from the Pentagon
Anthrax was detected inside the Pentagon and promptly removed, officials
said yesterday. Cleanup in the Senate office building where an anthrax-packed
letter was opened proved more complicated.
Government agencies moved to test buildings around the country for the pres-
ence of anthrax spores, and officials at the Mayo Clinic unveiled a more rapid
test for anthrax exposure.
Co-workers mourned the death of a New York hospital worker ainvestigators
chased leads to the anthrax that killed her. Another victim came home from the
hospital and a third came out of intensive care.
"Even though we have been confronted with a deadly disease, there is hope,"
said Norma Wallace a postal worker in Hamilton, N.J., who was released from
the hospital Monday after more than two weeks of treatment for inhalation
anthrax.
Public health officials looked for patterns among the 10 people infected with
inhalation anthrax and prepared guidelines for doctors trying to distinguish it
from the flu.
A postal facility in yet another government building tested positive for expo-
sure - this time inside the Pentagon.
WASHINGTON
Fed expected to cut interest rates again
The economic landscape has turned much darker - consumer confidence is
plunging, overall output is contracting and the number of Americans losing their
jobs is at a21-year high.
A 10th interest rate cut this year by the Federal Reserve is widely expected today. But
the flood of bad economic data has raised fears the central bank's efforts to jump-start
the economy could be overwhelmed, worsening a recession many analysts believe has
already begun.
Adding to the economic uncertainty is the threat of more terrorist attacks and ris-
ing worries about anthrax contamination in the mail.
"The economy could really spiral downward if terrorism gets worse,"
said Sung Won Sohn, chief economist at Wells Fargo in Minneapolis.
"That is a scary prospect because we have never faced anything quite like
this before."
In normal times, the Fed's powerful medicine of lower interest rates would lift the
economy out of a recession by boosting demand in interest-sensitive sectors such as
housing, autos and big-ticket capital goods.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Democrats
were favored to capture Republican-
held governorships today in Virginia
and New Jersey, while the nasty race
to succeed the popular Rudolph Giu-
liani as mayor of disaster-scarred New
York was a virtual dead heat.
Dozens of other cities - including
Atlanta, Boston, Houston, Miami and
Seattle - also choose mayors in the
off-year elections, but no race matched
New York's for big spending and big
stakes.
Democrat Mark Green, the city's elect-
ed public advocate, and Republican
Michael Bloomberg, the media mogul
who spent more than $40 million of his
own money, each insisted he was better

qualified to lead the city's recovery from
the Sept. 11 terrorist attack. Each
accused the other of mudslinging and
racially divisive tactics.
Green held a big lead in the polls
until Bloomberg finally gained Giu-
liani's endorsement last week.
Bloomberg saturated the New York
airwaves with a commercial showing
Giuliani enthusiastically endorsing
him as the man to lead the city through
its crisis.
Bloomberg also ran an ad that
quotes Green as saying he could have
handled the World Trade Center
tragedy as well as or better than Giu-
liani. Then the commercial asks,
"Really?"

WASHINGTON
High court reviews
death penalty case
Walter Mickens had many things
working against him as he went to trial
for raping and killing a 17-year-old
boy, including substantial physical and
circumstantial evidence.
The Supreme Court questioned yes-
terday whether Mickens also had
another thing working against him -
a lawyer who could not give his all
because he had, until days earlier, rep-
resented the victim in another case.
The Virginia case is part of the high
court's broadest review of the death
penalty in years, and one facet of a
question that has troubled at least two
Supreme Court justices: Do people
facing the death penalty get adequate
legal help?
Later this term, the court will also
revisit the debate over whether it is
unconstitutionally cruel and unusual
punishment to execute the mentally
retarded. -
TEH RAN, iran-
U.N. says U.S should
not have post war role
The United Nations should exclude
the United States and Afghanistan's
neighbors from any possible post-Tal-
iban peacekeeping mission or risk
even more instability across central
Asia, Iran's foreign minister said yes-
terday.
Such a position risks increasing fric-
tion with Washington, which may seek
some continued military oversight in

Afghanistan if attacks succeed in top-
pling the Taliban and uprooting Osama
bin Laden's al-Qaida command.
However, Foreign Minister Kamal
Kharrazi insisted in an interview with
The Associated Press that any U.S.
presence on a post-Taliban peace-
keeping force "would have a negative
impact on the whole region.
"Central Asian countries are
always sensitive to the presence of
Americans and American soldiers,"
Kharrazi said.
MANAGUA, Nicaragua
Ortega loses bid for
Nicaragua presidency
Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega con-
ceded defeat yesterday to the governing
party presidential candidate, Enrique
Bolanos, who had once been impris-
oned by a past Ortega government.
"We' accept'the mandate of'the 'peo'-
ple and congratulate the Liberal tick-
et," Ortega said. He promised to
continue working for stttional recon-
ciliation and a free-market economy,
from within the country's National
Assembly, or congress.
With 5.4 percent of the vote counted, the
Liberal party's Bolanos had 61,100 votes
or 53 percent, while Ortega of the Sandin-
ista National Liberation Front trailed with
45.3 percent or 52,297, according to
Roberto Rivas, the president of the coun-
try's Supreme Electoral Council.
The first results, delayed because of
late closing of voting places, also had
the Liberal party headed for control of
the national assembly.
