Good Morning, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
Today, more than 100 members of Congress will walk through the charred remains of the World Trade Center.
House Minority leader Dick Gephardt says the lawmakers will tour the site, in an effort to understand the immensity of the loss.
They'll meet with New York Governor George Pataki and Mayor Rudy Giuliani to discuss problems recovery crews are facing, and to figure out how much money needs to be spent for recovery.

The Taliban is saying for the first time that Osama bin Laden is still in Afghanistan, and is being kept in a secret location.
Meanwhile, opposition forces fighting the Taliban rulers claim hundreds of Taliban soldiers have defected.
The opposition, called the Northern Alliance, also says it's made territorial gains in Afghanistan's northern mountains.
Back in the U-S, Attorney General John Ashcroft says Americans can't let down their guard.
Ashcroft says since there's little alternative left besides military action, there is a very serious threat of additional terrorist attacks.
Jennifer Miller is in Washington D-C this morning, and has the latest.

The study is published in the September 27-th issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. It found a direct link between the amount of inhaled steroids and a decrease in bone density in pre-menopausal women.

Experts believe that such bone loss can lead to osteoporosis. But, they suggest that while inhalers are still effective in treating asthma, patients should use low doses. You can slow bone loss by increasing calcium and vitamin D in your diet. Doctors also recommend weight bearing exercises.

((Facing a massive military build up and the threat of a U.S. attack, the Taliban is getting increasingly vocal... saying they have Osama Bin Laden under their control and hidden for his own safety.

SOT: Translator:

"Control meaning that we have stopped him from making any actions."
But that hasnt stopped Bin Laden from defying their request that he leave the country. Meanwhile, officials here are still warning that the threat of more attacks is very real.

SOT: John Ashcroft/U.S. Attorney General

"We think that there is a very serious threat of additional problems now and frankly as the U.S. responds that threat may escalate."
So real in fact that researchers are working around the clock to develop an early warning system for chemical or biological attacks.

SOT: Michael Sailor/University of California San Diego-Scientist

"You dont know whats going to be thrown at you."
While America beefs up security, the global hunt for terrorists continues. So far more than 500 people have been arrested or detained, with additional arrests across Europe where officials believe there are more terrorist cells linked to Bin Laden.

SOT: William Cohen/Former Defense Secretary

I think you'll see this reach to many different countries where there have, quote, "cells" or operatives who are masterminding or planning more attacks." ))
