Bush, Putin to limit nuclear power

WASHINGON (AP) - President Bush pledged
yesterday to slash the United States' nuclear arsenal by
two-thirds, to as few as 1,700 warheads, and Russian
President Vladimir Putin said he might "respond in
kind." Despite the AmericAn gesture, Putin renewed
his opposition to U.S. missile shield plans.
In private talks, a special White House tour and an
East Room news conference, the leaders opened a
three-day visit that will focus on the budding U.S.
Russian alliance against terrorism and nagging differ-
ences over the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty.
"Together, we're making history as we make
progress," Bush said. "We're transforming our relation-
ship from one of hostility and suspicion to one based
on cooperation and trust."
The talks move today to Bush's ranch in Crawford,
Texas, where U.S. officials held out some hope for
accord on the missile shield issue. Both leaders indi-

cated their relationship had buried vestiges of the Cold
War.
In his fourth meeting with the U.S. president, Putin
urged his own citizens to stop looking at American
relations "from the old standpoint, distrust and the
enmit y." On the question of allowing U.S. forces to use
Central Asia as a base into Afghanistan, the Russian
president said: "We have nothing to be afraid of."
Earlier, Bush took Putin on an unscheduled tour of
the White House, including its swimming pool and the
South Lawn tree swing where Amy Carter and the
Kennedy children once played. They ducked into a
Cabinet Room meeting with their respective delega-
tions, where Bush heaped Putin with praise.
"You're the kind of guy I like to have in a foxhole
with me," Bush said, according to a participant.
Finding plenty of common ground, the leaders urged
Afghanistan's U.S.-backed opposition fighters to use

restraint while liberating the nation's capital of Kabul,
and galled for a multiethnic post-Taliban government.
They brushed aside reports northern alliance forces
were executing prisoners of war.
In a blizzard of paper, the pair formalized a series of
agreements to combat bioterrorism, bolster the Russ-
ian economy, battle money laundering that finances
terrorism and strengthen Russia's ties to NATO - the
19-member military alliance formed to counter
Moscow in the Cold War.
It was the issue of weapons that underscored their
greatest agreement and disagreement.
Bush, who promised in the presidential campaign to
significantly reduce U.S. nuclear stockpiles regardless
of whether Russia reciprocated, announced his inten-
tion to slash the nation's long-range nuclear arsenal to
between 1,700 and 2,200 weapons over the next
decade.

NEWS IN BRIEF
HEADLINES FROMAROUND T EWORLD
WASHINGTON
Bush: military would try terrorists
President Bush signed an order yesterday that would allow the government to
try people accused of terrorism in front of a special military commission instead
of in civilian court.
The order, signed by Bush before he left for Crawford, Texas, gives the admin-
istration another avenue to bring the Sept. 11 terrorists to justice, White House
counsel Albert Gonzales told The Associated Press.
"This is a new tool to use against terrorism," Gonzales said in a telephone
interview. He said there were precedents in World War II and the Civil War.
The White House was to release the order late yesterday.
Gonzales, a former Texas Supreme Court judge who is the president's top
lawyer, said a military commission could have several advantages over a civilian
court. It is easier to protect the sources and methods of investigators in military
proceedings, for example, and a military trial can be held overseas.
Gonzales said there may be times when prosecutors feel a trial in America
would be unsafe.
"There may not be a need for this and the president may make a determination
that he does not want to use this tool, but he felt it appropriate that he have this
tool available to him," the lawyer said.

Federal officials said yesterday they believe an anthrax-filled letter that has yet to
be discovered sickened a State Department mail handler with the most serious form
of the disease, a theory bolstered by the discovery of anthrax in eight places in the
building where he worked.
The State Department said it would begin hunting through three weeks' worth of
unopened mail, searching for a letter that could advance the anthrax investigation.
"We have to assume that, one, there is a contaminated letter of some kind in our
system, and second of all, that we will eventually find it in one of these mail rooms
or pouch bags" said State Department spokesman Richard Boucher.
More than two weeks ago, Dr. Jeffrey Koplan, director of the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, said it was a virtual certainty that another letter was lurking,
undiscovered. Yesterday, the State Department said it didn't begin looking sooner
because the mail facility was "a crime scene" and officials wanted to test it for
anthrax first.
The FBI said it doubts a letter will be found even once they start looking.
No new cases of anthrax infection have been reported for more than two weeks.

PIKEVILLE, Ky.
Wildfire outbreak
burns 150,000 acres
Across southern Appalachia, the air
hangs heavy with the acrid smell of
burning wood from the largest out-
break of wildfires in at least a decade.
The wafting smoke - evident near-
ly 200 miles away in Louisville - has
cut visibility to near zero along some
mountain highways. Car headlights
and streetlights are staying on, some
schools have closed, and people with
breathing problems have been rushing
to hospitals or staying indoors.
"I don't go out there unless I have
to," said 84-year-old Elsie Carter, who
can't see the trees outside her Pikeville
home because of the thick, gray haze.
"It looks dangerous, and it is danger-
ous if people breathe it too long."
Wildfires nearly all of them
intentionally set - have burned across
more than 150,000 acres of woodlands
in Kentucky's Appalachian region so
far this year.
BERLIN
Court convicts 4 in
1986 disco bombing
A German court convicted four
defendants yesterday in the 1986 bomb-
ing of a West Berlin discotheque and
blamed the Libyan secret service for
planning the attack which killed two
U.S. soldiers and a Turkish woman.
"The La Belle attack was one of the
most perfidious and dangerous crimes in
German history," Judge Peter Marhofer
said in announcing the verdict.

In Washington, State Department
spokesman Richard Boucher welcomed
the verdict as "positive news."
"It's a strong indication that however
long it takes, whatever we have to do,
we do and we will continue to bring ter-
rorists to justice," he said.
The April 5, 1986, explosion at the
crowded La Belle disco killed Sgt. Ken-
neth T. Ford, 21, Nermin Hannay, a 29-
year-old Turkish woman, and
25-year-old Sgt. James E. Goins.

ALGIERS, Algeria
Floods, mudslides
kill 579 in Algeria *
Rescuers sifted through caked
mud yesterday seeking survivors of
flooding and mudslides that killed
nearly 600 people in the Algerian
capital. More rain was forecast.
The official death toll stood at
579. Some Algiers newspapers esti-
mated deaths could climb as high° as
1,000 when devastated areas are
searched.
Mud clogged the narrow streets,
where residents expressed fury at what
they called the government's lax
response to a weekend mudslide trig-
gered by heavy rains that devastated
several working class neighborhoods.
"We are revolted by the complete
absence of the authorities," said
Messaoud, a 52-year-old administra-
tor who declined to give his last
name. "The army didn't even send
helicopters to rescue people who
sought refuge on the roofs:'
