More rock throwing. More shooting. More wounded. The toll continues to rise as Israelis and Palestinians clash for the 12th straight day with no end in sight. All hope for a peaceful resolution to the crisis rests with diplomats and world leaders struggling to find a solution.

(sot, Kofi Annan, UN Secretary General)

I have come to listen to hear the leaders to work with them and see how I can help."

The crisis erupted 2 weeks ago after Israeli hardliner Ariel Sharon sparked a confrontation when he appeared at a sacred tomb revered by Palestinians and Jews.

An Israeli deadline for Palestinians to lay down their arms seems to have had little effect despite warnings about using the full-might of its Army if the violence doesn't end.

American ally Saudi Arabia has announced it will not standby idly if Israel launches strikes against Palestinians and their supporters in neighboring Lebanon and Syria.

President Clinton has talked repeatedly with leaders on both sides of the conflict. Mister Clinton wants a peace summit in Egypt but has made no decision about flying to the region until diplomats have more time.

(sot, Kofi Annan, UN Secretary General)

The time is short, the stakes are high, the price for failure is more than anyone of us wants to pay.

(WILSON STANDUP CLOSE)

For now, it is a stalemate. Neither side seems willing to stop the fighting. Neither side seems willing to commit to peace.

The three-member crew answered questions today at the Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia. The flight is scheduled for November 1st and will launch from the former communist country. An unprecedented 16 nations are backing the project. Goals for this particular 5-month long mission include the delicate task of successfully combining different components made by different countries.

me is to make sure the software operations at the station work and the synergy of the project works as it did on the ground.")
More than 23 experiments will be conducted. Many involve testing the effects of gravity in the fields of medicine, ecology and science. When asked whether they will take along any good luck charms, American Bill Shepard said he'll bring pictures of his family and return with snapshots of space from his long anticipated mission.

"FOR THE FIRST TIME, ONE ANIMAL SPECIES HAS BEEN CLONED USING THE EGGS OF A SURROGATE MOM OF A DIFFERENT SPECIES. "
TRACK: BESSIE IS CARRYING A CLONE OF A GAUR...AN ASIAN OX LIKE THESE AT THE BRONX ZOO IN NEW YORK. SCIENTISTS HOPE CLONING MAY BRING IT BACK FROM THE BRINK OF EXTINCTION.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS. FIRST THE GENETIC MATERIAL IS REMOVED FROM AN ORDINARY COW EGG. IT'S REPLACED BY GENETIC MATERIAL FROM A GAUER. AN ELECTRICAL CURRENT IS APPLIED WHICH CAUSES THE CELLS TO FUSE AND BEGIN TO GROW INTO AN EMBRYO...THAT EMBRYO IS THEN IMPLANTED IN A SURROGATE COW.
THE TECHNOLOGY COULD BE USED ON MANY DIFFERENT SPECIES.

(SOT LANZA):

"SO THIS PAVES THE WAY TOWARDS SAVING FOR INSTANCE THE GIANT PANDA THE GORILLAS OF EAST AFRICA AND EVEN EXTINCT SPECIES SUCH AS THE BUCADO MOUNTAIN GOAT."

(EMILY OC):

THIS CLONING TECHNOLOGY DEPENDS ON SAMPLES OF LIVING TISSUE BUT IT COULD ONE DAY BE PERFECTED SO THAT SPECIES LONG EXTINCT COULD BE BROUGHT BACK.

(SOT/LANZA):

"IT'S UNREALISTIC TO THINK WE WILL HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY TO CLONE A DINOSAUR OR WOOLY MAMMOTH ANY TIME SOON. THE PROBLEM WITH MANY OF THESE EFFORTS IS THE DNA IS SEVERELY DAMAGED.
TRACK: MICHEAL NOVACEK IS IN CHARGE OF THE EFFORT AT THE AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY IN NEW YORK. BUT HE SAYS CLONING CAN'T REPLACE CONSERVATION AS A WAY TO SAVE SPECIES.

"JUST CLONING ONE INDIVIDUAL DOESN'T INSURE THAT YOU'VE GOT KIND OF GENETIC VARIATION IN THE POPULATION THAT YOU NEED TO SUSTAIN IT."
