American soldiers’ bodies found, death toll rises
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — After days of intense searching by ground and air, U.S. forces on Saturday found the bodies of two soldiers missing north of Baghdad, as the toll of American dead since the start of war topped the grim milestone of 200.
Also Saturday, British forces were greeted peacefully as they returned to a southern Shiite town where six of their troops were killed in clashes. And the U.S. military announced small rebuilding projects, ranging from the delivery of school and medical supplies to the restoration of power and water in several Iraqi towns.
Bush adviser meets with Palestinian prime minister
JERICHO, West Bank (AP) —
Seeking to advance a U.S.-backed peace plan, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice held talks with the Palestinian prime minister Saturday, a day ahead of an expected truce announcement by Palestinian militants.
Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, in his four-hour meeting with Rice in the West Bank city of Jericho, pressed demands for the release of political prisoners held by Israel, a full withdrawal of Israeli troops horn Palestinian territories and a freeze on Jewish settlement activity there, Palestinian Cabinet Minister Yasser Abed Rabbo said.
Team questioned about missing basketball player
WACO, Texas (AP) — Police have been questioning Baylor University basketball players in the disappearance of a teammate, who authorities fear may be a victim of homicide.
No body has been found, but authorities say Patrick James Dennehy, 21, hasn’t been heard from in more than two weeks, and his sport utility vehicle turned up abandoned in a parking lot last week in Virginia with its license plates missing.
Investigators believe the 6-10, 230-pound center may have been killed in the Waco area, though authorities wouldn’t say what led them to that conclusion.
