High court to hear Guantanamo challenges

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
Supreme Court will hear its first case
arising from the government's anti-
terrorism campaign following the
Sept. 11 attacks, agreeing yesterday to
consider whether foreigners held at a
U.S. Navy base in Cuba should have
access to American courts.
The appeals came from British,
Australian and Kuwaiti citizens held
with more than 600 others suspected

of being Taliban or al-Qaida foot
soldiers. Most were picked up in
U.S. anti-terrorism sweeps in
Afghanistan following the attacks of
two years ago.
The court combined the men's
appeals and will hear the consolidated
case sometime next year.
Lower courts had found that the
American civilian court system did
not have authority to hear the men's

complaints about their treatment.
"The United States has created a
prison on Guantanamo Bay that oper-
ates entirely outside the law," lawyers
for British and Australian detainees
argued in asking the high court to
take the case.
"Within the walls of this prison,
foreign nationals may be held indefi-
nitely, without charges or evidence of
wrongdoing, without access to family,

friends or legal counsel, and with no
opportunity to establish their inno-
cence," they maintained.
Also yesterday, the high court
refused to hear another appeal dealing
with the U.S. government anti-terror-
ism campaign. The court did not com-
ment in rejecting an appeal from an
Islamic charity whose assets were
impounded three months after the ter-
rorist attacks.

NEWS IN BRIEF
HEALIESFROM AROUND THE WORLD
BEIJING,. "
Clinton discusses AIDS, SARS with Chinese
China brought together scientists, government leaders and even former Presi-
dent Bill Clinton yesterday to battle the health threats most urgent to itself and to
big swaths of the world - SARS and AIDS.
Clinton praised the Chinese government for its decision to help poor AIDS
patients receive treatment. And, he told a symposium at Tsinghua University, the
quick spread of SARS around the world demonstrated how countries and compa-
nies simply must collaborate to fight disease.
"A sneeze in Hong Kong led to a quarantine in Toronto," he said. "We cannot
escape each other's fate."
Clinton said anti-AIDS drugs must become more affordable and it was uncon-
scionable that people across the world were dying because they couldn't pay for
treatment.
"This medicine issue is an international scandal," Clinton said. "Money should-
n't determine who lives and dies from AIDS."
Last week, Chinese Executive Vice Health Minister Gao Qiang said thousands
of poor HIV and AIDS patients would receive free AIDS treatment, starting with
5,000 this year. By 2008, the number will rise to 40,000 patients, said Zhang
Fujian, director of the National HIV/AIDS Clinical Task Force, speaking at yes-
terday's symposium.

FBI: Terrorists have materials for dirty bomb
Federal investigators have documented 1,300 cases of lost, stolen or aban-
doned radioactive material inside the United States over the past five years and
have concluded there is a significant risk that terrorists could cobble enough
together for a dirty bomb.
Studies by the Energy Department's Los Alamos laboratory and the General
Accounting Office found significant holes in the nation's security net that could
take years to close, even after improvements by regulators since Sept. 11, 2001.
"The world of radiological sources developed prior to recent concerns about
terrorism, and many of the sources are either unsecured or provided, at best,
with an industrial level of security," the Los Alamos lab concluded two months
ago in a report that was reviewed by The Associated Press.
The report concludes that the threat of a so-called dirty bomb that could dis-
perse radiological materials across a wide area "appears to be very significant,
and there is no shortage of radioactive materials that could be used." Security
improvements under way "are unlikely to significantly alter the global risk pic-
ture for a few years," it added.

WASHINGTON
FCC to allow phone
users to go wireless
The days of having more than one
phone number may be, well, numbered
for many people.
Federal regulators approved rules
yesterday making it easier for con-
sumers to go totally wireless by allow-
ing them to transfer their home number
to their cell phone.,
For those who favor traditional
phones, the Federal Communications
Commission also plans to allow people
to transfer their cell number to their
home phone, though initially only a few
will have this option.
These rules, which come on top of
plans to allow people to keep their cell
number when they change wireless
companies, are aimed at boosting com-
petition in the telecommunications
industry.
All the changes take effect Nov. 24
for customers in the 100 largest metro-
politan areas. They will apply to every-
one beginning March 24.
CHESAPEAKE, Vas
Jury selection begins
in second sniper trial
Jury selection began yesterday in the
capital murder trial of sniper suspect Lee
Boyd Malvo, while in another courtroom

15 miles away, prosecutors rested their
case against his fellow suspect, John
Allen Muhammad.
Shortly before jurors were brought in
yesterday, Malvo, 18, stood before the
judge and pleaded innocent to murder
charges in the shooting of FBI analyst
Linda Johnson, killed during the three
weeks of sniper attacks that terrified the
Washington area last fall.
"Not guilty," Malvo replied in a clear
voice each time he was asked for his plea
to two counts of capital murder and to
one count of using a firearm in a felony.
Kerry appoints new
campaign manager
Democratic candidate John Kerry
fired his campaign manager Sunday
night in an attempt shake up his belea-
guered presidential bid, The Associated
Press learned. Two senior campaign offi-
cials speaking on condition of anonymity
said yesterday that Jim Jordan was oust-
ed by the Massachusetts senator and his
campaign chair, Jeanne Shaheen, the for-
mer governor of New Hampshire. Jordan
will be replaced by longtime Democratic
operative Mary Beth Cahill.
The sources said that Jordan was told
by Kerry the reason he was dismissed
was because changes were needed in the
campaign.
