Prepare for a Holy War against the U-S-- that's what Afghanistan's hard- line Muslim rulers are telling citizens.

The Taliban's news agency is warning of a possible U-S invasion-- urging Afghanis to stay united.
The Taliban says prime suspect Osama bin Laden has been wrongly accused of involvement in last week's attacks on New York and Washington.

Many stock market analysts say it's encouraging that stock prices didn't fall harder than they did yesterday.
When trading begins later this morning, the New York Stock Exchange will open below the nine-thousand level for the first time in more than two-and-a-half years.
In the meantime, authorities have detained nearly 50 people, and are seeking 200 more in the investigation of last week's terrorist attacks.
Courts have sealed arrest records in the secret operation.
But last night's return of the nation's past- time helped many people take their minds off the tragedy. Security was tighter, but the mood was patriotic. Stephen Clark has the latest from New York City.

People around the nation are pouring into blood centers in their efforts to show support for the victims of last Tuesday's attacks. However, a small percentage of those people will feel lightheaded and faint while donating blood. A new study has found that coffee may help. The study published in the July 1999 issue of Health Psychology found that women who consumed a 12 ounce cup of coffee before giving blood were less likely to feel faint during donation.

Courts have sealed arrest records in the secret operation.
Osama bin Laden remains the prime suspect.
Meanwhile, many stock market analysts say it's encouraging that stock prices didn't fall harder than they did yesterday.

(( Tech was scheduled to be off last weekend, before the NCAA's slate of games were postponed. This week Tech hits the road for the first time this season. And unfortunately, the luck of the schedule has them heading to Rutgers. That means the team will fly right over Manhattan before landing at the Newark airport. ((BILLY HITE/VT ASST. HEAD COACH:)) The Hokies do not fly commercial airlines on their away trips. Their plane is chartered from Miami Air. ((BILLY HITE/VT ASST. HEAD COACH:)) On a much lighter note, the Merryman Center's brand new memorabilia room is turning more than it's share of heads. ((DAVE KNACHEL:)) Knachel who now works as an assistant in the Sports Information office, is given most of the credit for spearheading the work on the room and creating the displays that include much of the old and much more of the new -LIKE interactive video screens. ((NAT SOUND:)) Almost all of the photographs that are now larger than life in the room were taken over the past 20 years by Knachel.

((DAVE KNACHEL:)) Fans will be in awe of the displays, but the real reason behind building such a structure is to impress the future Hokies.)) ((FRANK BEAMER:)) ((DAVE KNACHEL:)) ((MIKE STEVENS))

Deputies are investigating what caused a truck accident and diesel fuel spill in Bedford County. The Eagle Petroleum truck on Route 43 was headed toward Bedford yesterday morning when the truck flipped on a curve. Deputies say the driver, Bobby Gene (Hahn-a-kurr) Honaker of Montvale, lost control when the brakes failed. Investigators say the rig lost about 380 gallons of fuel, and they are trying to figure out if the spill could contaminate water.
