((A breakthrough in Bethlehem but not the end of the story. The Israeli military has agreed to let several dozen Palestinians leave the Church of the Nativity, for questioning, and ultimately, freedom. Another twenty-six, will go to Gaza, while the thirteen wanted for the most seri us crimes, will remain in the church, as Israeli and European negotiators try to find another country willing to take them in. It was one bit of good news after a new spate ofviolence here. (RISHON LETZION) Rescue workers cleaned up after the devastating Tuesday night suicide bombing by the militant group Hamas, in a pool hall in Rishon Letzion, south of Tel Aviv. Hours later, another suicide bomber survived a failed attempt to blow himself up at a bus stop, in northern Israel. Stunned by the blast, he struggled against the robot sent to disarm him. Palestinian President Yasser Arafat condemned the latest violence, and promised to crack down on those responsibl

Officials say the Rishon Letzion suicide bombing, which happened just as Israel s Prime Minister Ariel Sharon met with the American president, helped drive home that point. (on-cam) Israeli officials are now saying Sharon was able to convince the White House tha Arafat is no longer a partner for peace, and that peace talks cannot move forward, until the Palestinians choose a new leader. officials) American diplomats were still talking about working with both sides, and both leaders. But Israeli officials, heading to an emergency security cabinet meeting, said they were considering expelling Arafat, once and for all. KD, CBS News, Jerusalem )
