In the news this morning--
Afghanistan's eastern alliance has declared a cease-fire after a fierce battle with al-Qaida troops.
The alliance's defense chief agreed to the truce after retreating al-Qaida forces said they were willing to discuss terms of a surrender.
In the past, forces loyal to Osama bin Laden have vowed to fight to the death.
Meanwhile, today marks the three- month anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
And a tape that U-S officials say proves Osama bin Laden is responsible for the attacks could be released as early as tomorrow.
Jim Acosta joins us now from Washington with the latest.

The three mile stretch of track has been the scene of many serious wrecks over the years.
It's rated a four-point-seven percent grade.
Among railroad workers, a THREE percent grade is considered brutal.
Norfolk Southern spokeswoman Susan Terpay says Saluda Grade is being taken out of service, because traffic patterns have changed.
However, she says the tracks will be maintained, in case the line is ever needed again.
