New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 18, 2001, New Braunfels, Texas Tuesday, September 18, 2001 — HERALD-ZEITUNG — Page 3ABorder countries react to U.S. threat SEARCH/From 1A Having sheltered suspected terrorist organizer Osama bin Laden since 1996, Afghanistan's ruling Taliban have become a likely target of U.S. retaliation for last week’s terror attacks. Some surrounding countries have aligned themselves with the United States, with varying degrees of committment, while others have refused to contribute in any way to U.S. aggression. Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan These former Soviet republics are influenced by Russia and are unlikley to take part in strike or allow U.S. forces to use territory. Tajikistan Said Sunday it will not allow Western nations to launch attacks on Afghanistan from its territory. Tajikistan is heavily influenced by Russia.

He declined to provide esti-mates or names, saying courts have sealed the information. The Justice Department previously confirmed two people were arrested on such warrants. But no one has directly been charged with crimes related to the attacks seven days ago. Mueller said law enforcement did not have any advance indications about the suicide hijackings that struck the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon. “There were no warning signs that I’m aware of that would indicate this type of operation in the country,” he said. New Delhi O FBI agents pressed to learn whether any of those already in custody may have assisted the hijackings, were thwarted in their own efforts to hijack other planes or planned to carry out other attacks against Americans. Among those being detained were two men who left on a plane from Newark, N.J., around the time of the attacks, and then took an Amtrak train to Texas from St. Louis, Mo., after their plane was grounded. Ayub Ali Khan, 51, and Mohammed J a weed Azmath, 47, were removed from an Amtrak train during a routine drug search Wednesday night. No drugs were found, but the men had box-cutting knives and about $5,000 in cash, according to a federal official who spoke on condition of anonymity. Hijackers in Tuesday’s attacks used knives and box cutters to commandeer the four airliners last Tuesday. The FBI was aggressively questioning their acquaintances in New Jersey, where at least 13 people were being detained, officials said. The two men have been flown by authorities to New York, as was another man who had been held in Minnesota, officials said. Zacarias Moussaoui was detained Aug. 17 on immigration concerns after he aroused suspicions by seeking to buy time on a flight simulator for jetliners at a Minnesota flight school, law enforcement officials said. Among those being monitored is a Muslim cleric who previously was questioned by prosecutors in the 1990s embassy bombings case linked to bin Laden, considered the prime suspect.

The New York Stock Exchange, just blocks from the World Trade Center, closed for four days as crews worked to replace telephone lines and computer equipment. It was the longest exchange closing since 1933. “This is our first chance to react since the incidents happened,” Dunks said. ‘Tm happy that the system works, we filled orders and now we’ll focus on finding the good buys that are out there.” The market opened with two minutes of silence for the victims of this past week’s Obituaries CASTILLO Trinidad B.

Sen. Hillary Clinton, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Gov. George E. Pataki participated in the opening bell of the stock exchange. Trading was extremely busy, shown by heavy volume, which topped I billion at noon — three hours earlier than usual. But the selling could have been even stronger, analysts said Monday afternoon. The ratio of stocks that declined to those that advanced was about 5 to I, typical of the Wall Street’s recent sell-offs. Airline companies took the biggest hit on the market today, Dunks said. The Federal Reserve tried to hold off a selling panic before the markets opened Monday, issuing a half-point drop in interest rates. Dunks said it was hard to tell whether the strategy worked.
