Bin Laden NEWS IN BRIEF .,
0c - .3 *0 I 0'if i
WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S.
forces killed a top associate of
Osama bin Laden in Yemen in a
missile strike, expanding the war on
terror with America's first overt
attack on suspected al-Qaida opera-
tives outside of Afghanistan, a U.S.
official said yesterday.
Qaed Salim Sunian al-Harethi
was one of several al-Qaida mem-
bers traveling by car in northwest
Yemen when a Hellfire missile
struck it Sunday, killing him and
The official, speaking on the con-
dition of anonymity, said the attack
was believed to have been conduct-
ed by a CIA aircraft, possibly a mis-
sile-carrying Predator drone.

They reportedly discovered $135 miss-
ing. "There's enough similarity in the
description that we are investigating a
possible connection," Brown said.
Several South Quad residents said
they still believe their possessions are
safe in the residence halls, but added
that they are anxious for new security
measures to begin working.
Security cameras are currently being
installed in the residence hall's two main
entrances but are not yet working.
"I feel my stuff is very safe, except
for when I lose my MCard and keys,"
said Music freshman Andy Papas,
adding he believes his keys were
recently stolen after he accidentally
left them in his mailbox keyhole.
The heightened awareness of on-cam-
pus theft led Papas to immediately
change his door locks. He said nothing
was missing from his room. His keys
have not been returned.
"I hate having to lock my doors
all the time. It's just such a pain,"
Papas said, adding that like many
others, he does it anyway.

An avid sailor, Martin is president of
the U.S. Sailing Foundation and also
served as president of the U.S. Sailing
Association, the national governing
body of the sport, from 1988-91. For the
last 10 years, he has represented sailing
at the Olympic level, and has been a
member of the USOC Board of Direc-
tors since 1995. This weekend, he was in
Colorado Springs, Col., helping the
USOC to choose New York City as its
candidate to host the 2012 Summer
"From a time perspective, there isn't
much difference for me now," Martin
said. "I am attending meetings as a
member of the Board (of Directors) any-
way, so it will just change which meet-
ings I attend."
Martin has served on a number of
USOC committees, including the budget
committee, but as Vice President-Secre-
tariat he will primarily take part in meet-
ings of the executive committee, which
sets USOC policy between meetings of
the Board of Directors. Martin said that
his new duties as vice president-secretari-
at will be taking roll and signing minutes
at meetings of the Board of Directors.
But Article XI of the USOC Constitution
states: "Until the election of an individual
to fill the vacancy in the office of the
president, the vice president-secretariat
shall act as president." So Martin is just
one "death, disability, resignation or
removal" away from the presidency.
Despite his high profile in Olympic
sports, Martin believes that his contin-
ued involvement in amateur athletics
actually helps him to do his job better.
"My first priority right now is the
University of Michigan," Martin said.
"But 22 of our 25 varsity sports (all
except men's and women's golf and foot-
ball) are Olympic sports, so there is a lot
of synergy and carryover."
Martin, a 1965 graduate of the
Business School's MBA program,
has served as Michigan's Athletic
Director since 2000.

sorry for his family and all his friends
Miska, who is originally from Ann
Arbor, said he hopes the man's death
raises more awareness of the city's
homeless community, adding that he's
met many homeless residents over the
years by walking down the sidewalks
and by volunteering in soup kitchens.
"A lot of them are working and either
have money for a place to live but no
food or have money for food but no
ST. PAUL, MInn. ;f
Independent to fill Wellstone's post
A steaming-mad Gov. Jesse Ventura appointed a fellow independent to tem-
porarily fill Sen. Paul Wellstone's seat yesterday, while Walter Mondale went on
the offensive against Republican Norm Coleman in the only debate of their com-
pressed Senate campaign.
Ventura's choice of Dean Barkley, a major figure in Minnesota's third-party
movement, leaves the balance of power in the Senate up in the air. The two major
parties now have 49 members each, with two independents.
One of those independents, Jim Jeffords of Vermont, routinely votes with
Democrats. Barkley said he is not sure which way he would lean.
"I can get along with moderate Democrats and moderate Republicans," he said.
He later noted that Jeffords told him in a call, "Don't commit to anything." Senate
Minority Leader Trent Lott also called in a bid to court the newest senator.
It is unclear how long Barkley will serve. An attorney general's opinion said
the winner of the Senate election will replace Barkley once the winner is certified
in mid-November. But Senate rules suggest Barkley's term will run into early Jan-
uary, until the new senators arrive.
It also remains unclear whether the Senate will hold a lame-duck session
between Election Day and January.
Suicide bomber kills two near Tel Aviv
A Palestinian suicide attacker blew himself up yesterday while grappling with
an Israeli security guard at a shopping mall in a Tel Aviv suburb, killing the guard
and another civilian and wounding 12 other people, including two infants.
The bombing - the 81st by Palestinian militants in two years - marked a
first test for Israel's new defense minister, Shaul Mofaz, who was sworn in
yesterday. Mofaz is known for his hawkish views and is an advocate of
tough military action against the Palestinians.
Against the backdrop of violence, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's govern-
ment fended off three no-confidence votes in Israel's parliament. Sharon
rejected calls for early elections, and was searching for partners to stabilize
his coalition and recapture a majority in the legislature.
In the yesterday evening bombing, the assailant, identified as 20-year-old Nabil
Sawalha, blew himself up in a shopping mall in Kfar Saba, a town northeast of Tel
Aviv just across the West Bank border from the Palestinian town of Qalqiliya.
Police said one of the Israeli dead was a mall security guard who struggled
with the bomber, stopping him from entering a crowded appliance store.
BAGH DAD, Iraq
over U.N. resolution
President Saddam Hussein indicated
yesterday he would not reject outright
a new U.N. resolution on weapons
inspections, saying Iraq would exam-
ine the conditions it imposes before
deciding on compliance, Irani TV
Saddam's remarks appeared to
mark a shift by the Iraqi leader, who
had maintained he would only accept
weapons inspectors on terms laid
down in previous resolutions.
The comments appearedaimed at
preparing the Iraqi people for
acceptance of a new resolution and
at buying time to stave off any
"Iraq will look into whether it will
deal with a resolution after it is
issued by the Security Council,"
state-run television quoted Saddam
as saying during a meeting with
Austrian far-right politician Joerg
Aid agencies prepare
for Iraqi refugee crisis
Fearing a repeat of the refugee crisis
sparked by the Gulf War and its after-
math, aid agencies and governments are
quietly drawing up plans and stockpil-
ing supplies to help Iraqis who may flee
their country if new fighting breaks out.
Neighboring countries, which took in
more than 3 million displaced people a
decade ago, hope to avoid a flood of
migrants by sealing their borders and set-
ting up refugee camps inside Iraq. Aid
officials doubt, however, that the flow of
frightened Iraqis can be halted at the bor-
der. Either way, huge amounts of supplies
could be needed on short notice. Interna-
tional relief agencies are rapidly trying to
fill warehouses in the region. "All of them
are preparing for what should happen if
there should be a reason for people to
flee," said Roland Huguenin of the Inter-
national Committee of the Red Cross.
Alaska oil shutdown
Engineers inspected the Alaska
pipeline to determine the extent of the
damage yesterday after one of the most
powerful earthquakes ever recorded in
the United States knocked out some of its
supports and forced a shutdown in the
flow of oil.Sunday's magnitude-7.9
quake was so strong that it opened cracks
6 feet wide in roads and rocked boats on
lakes as far away as Louisiana. However,
only one minor injury was reported - a
woman who broke her arm in a fall when
she fled her home.
The pipeline, which carries crude
from the North Slope oil fields, was
shut down as a precaution, and
Alyeska Pipeline Service Co.
spokesman Mike Heatwole said yes-
terday it was too soon to know when
pumping would resume.
