METAIRIE, La. (AP) - One
week after Hurricane Katrina dev-
astated the region, miles-long lines
of vehicles crawled into Jeffer-
son Parish yesterday astresidents
were allowed to return to salvage
what was left of their homes. New
Orleans's mayor warned that 10,000
people may have died.
President Bush began his second
trip. to the region since the storm hit,
landing in Baton Rouge late in the
morning to start another inspection
tour and consultations with federal
and local officials.
"All levels of the government are
doing the best they can," Bush said
in Baton Rouge. "So long as any life
is in danger, we've got work to do."
Traffic began moving into the
parish west of New Orleans at about
6 a.m. A curfew was set for 6 p.m.,
and residents were told they could
stay until tomorrow.
Among those returning was

imagined this,."
Most of the single-story bunga-
low homes in her neighborhood had
water nearly to the rooflines. Homes
in the most exclusive neighborhood
of the parish, Old Metaire, had little
structural damage but some of the
worst flooding. Along rows of pala-
tial, six-bedroom homes, a few win-
dows were broken and the live oaks
survived, but the water rippled up to
front-door knobs.
The suburban parish, which has
460,000 residents, has been closed
since a mandatory evacuation just
before Katrina hit. Wide portions of
Metairie and Kenner suffered heavy
flooding, and authorities said thou-
sands of homes were damaged.
Some 400 to 500 police officers
from New Orleans's 1,600 member
force were unaccounted for, Deputy
Police Chief W.J. Riley said.
A week after the storm, a defini-
tive death toll remained elusive.
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin
warned on NBC's "Today" that "it
wouldn't be unreasonable to have
10,000" dead.
Despite the grim estimate, he was
more upbeat than in previous days,
when he railed against the federal
government and broke down sob-
bing during a radio interview.
"We're making great progress
now, the momentum has picked up.
I'm starting to see some critical tasks
being completed," he told NBC.
"The 17th Street canal is about
or was about 84 percent closed in
yesterday afternoon. We have more
troops arriving, so we're starting
to make the kind of progress that I
kind of expected earlier."
Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honore
told ABC's "Good MorningAmer-
ica" that fewer than 10,000 people
remained in the city, based on aerial
"This is not a city under siege,"
he added on NBC. "This city needs
help from the big people in America
and its technology to get back on its
feet. We are focused on the future.
We have to finish the search-and-
rescue and provide food and water
from an area from Mobile (Ala.) to
the east side of New Orleans, up to
I-20 in Mississippi. This is a pig-big
piece of terrain. There are people
there that need help. We will do the
best we can to get it to them."
On Sunday, as authorities strug-
gled to keep order, gunmen opened
fire on a group of contractors on a
bridge, rescues of stranded residents
continued and the flood waters
began to recede, leaving the grisly
task of collecting bodies.
The Times-Picayune, Louisiana's
largest newspaper, published an
open letter to Bush that called for the
firing of every official at the Federal
Emergency Management Agency.
"We're angry, Mr. President,
and we'll be angry long after our
beloved city and surrounding par-
ishes have been pumped dry," the
editorial said. "Our people deserved
rescuing. Many who could have
been were not. That's to the govern-
ment's shame."
"Every official at the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
should be fired, Director Michael
Brown especially," the letter said.
'No expense should have been
spared. No excuses should have
been voiced."
Violence boiled over in New
Orleans when 14 contractors on
their way to help plug the breach in
the 17th Street Canal came under
fire as they traveled across a bridge
under police escort, said John Hall,
a spokesman for the Army Corps of
Engineers. Police shot at eight peo-

ple carrying guns, killing five or
six, Riley said. None of the contrac-
tors was injured, authorities said.
Besides the lawlessness, civilian
deaths and uncertainty about their
families, New Orleans's police have
had to deal with suicides in their
ranks. Two officers took their lives,
including the department spokes-
man, Paul Accardo, who died Sat-
urday, according to Riley. Both shot
themselves in the head, he said.
Reinforcements for police poured
down the interstates toward New
Orleans - long convoys of police
cars, blue lights flashing, embla-
zoned with emblems from scattered
police, sheriff, and other jurisdic-
tions, in and out of state.

MEDAN, Indonesia
Indonesian jetliner crash kills 147
An Indonesian jetliner slammed into a crowded neighborhood moments after a
shaky takeoff yesterday and burst into flames, killing 147 people, including dozens
on the ground. At least 15 passengers survived, among them an 18-month-old boy,
officials said.
The Mandala Airlines Boeing 737-200 was heading to Jakarta in overcast
weather when it plowed into a row of houses 500 yards from the airport and skid-
ded onto a busy road in this city on northeast Sumatra island. Witnesses said some
people were on fire as they fled the wreckage.
Firefighters struggled to put out the blaze, which engulfed dozens of houses and
at least 10 cars, in a midmorning rainstorm.
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan
Afghan police fight suspected militants
Thirteen suspected Taliban fighters have been killed in fighting with U.S.
and Afghan forces in a southern province, and more than 40 other suspected
militants were arrested, a senior Afghan official said yesterday.
Some 200 Afghan police, supported by the U.S.-led coalition, fought the
militants in the mountains of Ghorak district in Kandahar province on Sun-
day night, said Kandahar Gov. Asadullah Khalid.
"We have the dead bodies," Khalid said, adding that assault rifles and
some ammunition was confiscated from the fighters. He said 44 other sus-
pects were arrested and that the Afghan and coalition forces had suffered
no casualties.
U.S. military spokesman Col. James Yonts yesterday confirmed that more
than 40 suspected insurgents had been taken into custody, but gave no further
details about the military operation in Kandahar, which he said was continuing.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip
Night blast in Gaza kills 4, injures at least 30
A mysterious blast after nightfall yesterday leveled a building in Gaza City,
killing four people and wounding at least 30, residents and hospital officials
said. The violent Islamic Hamas group blamed Israel, but the Israeli military
said it was not involved.
The explosion came hours after Palestinian security forces got their first
look at demolished Jewish settlements in Gaza, touring the area ahead of
Israel's formal handover in mid-September. The joint tour by Palestinian
commanders and Israeli military officials marked the first time Palestinian
authorities were allowed into the settlements.
Insurgents launch surprise attack in Iraq
Insurgents launched a surprise attack on Baghdad's heavily guarded Interior
Ministry building yesterday, killing two police officers and wounding several
others, officials said. In southern Iraq, two British soldiers were killed by a
roadside bomb.
Insurgent casualties were unknown in the rare daylight assault, which began
soon after sunrise and lasted about 15 minutes. Thunderous explosions could be
heard in the center of Baghdad as insurgents fired rocket-propelled grenades and
automatic weapons.
At least four U.S. Apache and Black Hawk helicopters flew over the area in cen-
tral Baghdad after the firefight.
The Apaches were later joined by U.S. Army patrols in armored vehicles comb-
ing the streets to try to hunt down the attackers.

The subhead to a story that ran on Aug. 16 about Gannett Co. purchasing
the Detroit Free Press should not have said that the purchase made Gannett the
largest newspaper chain in the country. It already was the largest chain prior to
the purchase.
A story that ran on April 8 about the Men's Glee Club should othave said.
that Prof. Stephen Lusmann's last performance with the Glee Club would be the
next Saturday. He conducted the Glee Club on its East Coast tour later that spring.
The same story also should not have said that Prof. Jerry Blackstone's last perfor-
mance at Hill Auditorium was in 2002. That performance was his last at Hill as
the director of the Glee Club.
