Sur- veillance cameras captured the men as they arrived in the capital just 20 minutes before the explo- sions began. Police raided six homes in Leeds searching for explosives and computer files that would shed more light on what were believed to be the first suicide bombings in Western Europe. They arrested a man, identified by the British news agency Press Association as a relative of one of the suspected bombers. A town councilor told The As- sociated Press that at least three of the presumed suicide bombers were British citizens of Pakistani ancestry. One bomber was thought to be Shahzad Tanweer, a 22-year-old cricket-loving sports science graduate, and another was a teenager, Press Association re- ported. On its Web site. The Times newspaper named Tanweer, as well as Leeds residents Hasib Hussain, 19, and Mohammed Si- dique Khan, the 30-year-old fa- ther of an 8-month old baby.

With the countdown for Dis- covery in its final hours, NASA was dealt a setback Tuesday when a window cover fell off the shuttle and damaged thermal tiles near- the tail. But the space agency quickly fixed the problem and said it was still on track for launch today. The mishap was an eerie re- minder of the very thing that doomed Columbia years ago damage to the space- ship's fragile thermal shield. The lightweight plastic cover on one of Discovery's cockpit windows came loose while the spaceship was on the launch pad, falling more than 60 feet and striking a bulge in the fuselage, said Stephanie Stilson, the NASA manager in charge of Discov- ery's launch preparations. No one knows why the cover which was held in place with tape fell off, she said. Two tiles on an aluminum panel were damaged, and the entire panel was replaced with a spare in what Stilson said was a minor repair job. The cover, which weighs less than 2 pounds, struck a pan of the fuselage that NASA, PAGE A-6 EliHadad's projects remain I unfinished Payment dispute between Hadad, property manager leaves projects in limbo.

INSIDE: Graphic on shuttle's maneuvers, daily mission log, where to watch the What they're saying about Karl Rove By Peter Lyman Washington bureau Sen. Charles Schumer Tuesday asked i President Bush to direct his chief political I adviser, Karl Rove, to give public answers to i several questions about the "outing" of for- mer CIA agent Valerie Plame. Schumer, D-N.Y., was one of the first to i ask for a Justice Department inquiry after Flame's identity was revealed by syndicated I columnist Robert Novak two years ago. Novak cited unnamed White House sources. Rove has been widely rumored to be one of those sources. It is a federal crime to dis- close the identity of an undercover CIA i agent. Dead end? "The administration did ev- erything it was supposed to do" in appoint- ing a special counsel to investigate the mat- ter, Schumer said. But the matter now "seems to be reaching some kind of dead I he said. Schumer stopped short of calling for Rove's firing or resignation, as other congressional Democrats including Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton have done. Oust him: Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., who lost last year's presidential race to Bush, Tuesday Rove called for Rove to be fired. Clinton, D-N.Y., appeared with Kerry, and nodded when he spoke about Rove. "I'm she said. "Dedicated Rep. Sherwood Boehlert, R-New Hartford, a friend of Rove, said he wants "to know the rest of the story" before coming to any conclusions about Rove's conduct. Rove is a "bright, dedicated he said, "but that doesn't give him license to break any laws." Boehlert said he is confident that the in- vestigation by the special counsel, U.S. At- torney Patrick Fitzgerald, would eventually get to the bottom of the matter. "I don't think, based upon my knowledge of Karl Rove, that he would intentionally re- veal" secret information, Boehlert said. Chilled: Boehlert said he was troubled by the fact that Fitzgerald had jailed New York Times reporter Judith Miller for contempt for failing to reveal whether anyone in the White House talked to her about Plame, al- though Miller never wrote a story about the case. Novak, who wrote the column that identified Plame, faces no threat of jail. "I'm concerned when the government can say, 'Who have you talked Boehlert said. Boehlert is cosponsoring a bill to shield reporters from being forced to reveal anony- mous sources except in extraordinary cir- cumstances such as national security.

"We are in restart mode, but i we are not back online yet." Hn- tergy spokeswoman Bonnie Bos- tian said. "It's a gradual pro- j cess." In this case, online means FitzPatrick is producing power I for the energy grid; offline means the plant is shut down. To go back online, workers increase power to the reactor in- j crementally and must test the plant's functions and safety sys- j terns at each level. "The results of the lests de- termine how long we stay at a particular Bostian said. The testing phase typically lasts a day or two, Bostian said. Entergy officials hope to have the plant running at full power by the end of the week.
