Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
The C-I-A confirms that one of its officers was killed during a prison uprising in northern Afghanistan.
It's the first U-S combat death of the war there.
Witnesses had been reporting since the weekend that a C-I-A officier had been killed, as hundreds of captured supporters of Osama bin Laden revolted those holding them.
Meanwhile, German prosecutors are linking a man arrested in Hamburg to the September eleventh hijackers.
They say the man held a bank account used by the terrorists.
Prosecutors say large sums of money were put into the account last year on a regular basis.
Jim Acosta joins us now from Washington with an update.

Wearing a black arm band, Castro told a crowd that their fellow Cubans died earlier this month because of the "murderous" U-S immigration policies.
30- people were killed when the speedboat they were riding in capsized in the Florida Straits.
The U-S allows Cubans, unlike migrants from other countries to stay in the U-S and apply for residency based on their country of birth.
Castro says the laws encourage Cubans to undertake dangerous journeys, with the hope of living in the U-S.

Their remains were just recently shipped back to their families in the States.

A camera connected to the robot's head sends pictures back to a computer.
It's linked by cables that give controllers a real "snake-in-the-grass" view of the world.
