The attacks against Afghanistan have given U-S and British warplanes control of the skies.

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says that means operations can continue nearly round-the-clock.
U-S warplanes attacked the area around the southern Afghan city of Kandahar last night for the second time in 12 hours.
The raids mark a third straight night of airstrikes by the American- led coalition, seeking to punish Afghanistan's rulers for sheltering Osama bin Laden.

Meanwhile, the Bush administration is readying a new ``most wanted'' list of terror suspects, who are believed to still be at large.
Officials say President Bush is expected to announce the list today during an appearance at F-B-I headquarters.
Law enforcement officials familiar with the list say it'll include about 22 names, including that of Osama bin Laden and at least two of his top deputies.
A spokesman for bin Laden's al-Quaida network, meanwhile, is warning Americans that more attacks will come.
He made the statement in a video released yesterday.
Jennifer Miller has the latest now from Washington.

((JOHN HEATON/NEW COVENANT SCHOOLS: THE SCHOOL GROWS ABOUT 15 TO 20 PERCENT A YEAR, WHICH I THINK IS INDICATIVE OF THE DESIRE FOR THE KIND OF PROGRAM WE OFFER. IT'S A CLASSICAL, CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AND IT'S VERY SOLID, ACADEMICALLY RIGOROUS AND IT SEEMS TO BE CATCHING ON IN LYNCHBURG.))

Perhaps the THIRD time will be the charm for the Emmy Awards.
The show may go on yet for the twice-postponed program.
C-B-S and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences are working on a plan for a ceremony to air this year.
The goal is to settle on a ceremony and location that would be un-affected by outside events.
The Emmy's were first called off because of the terrorist attacks, and then because of the U-S led strikes on Afghanistan.
