(( He's considered one of al-Qaeda's top three operatives...and he's now in custody in a Pakistani jail. Unlike the capture of his sidekick Ramzi Bin Al Shieb last September, who was caught after a long gun battle...Muhammed went quietly. Muhammed sister described the arrest. Officials say no shots were fired in his capture and that Muhammed appears in good health. That's important because the 37 year old al qaeda executive who was educated in North Carolina and speaks perfect English is expected to undergo a long and thorough investigation. One starting point could be the 1993 World Trade Center attack...a crime Muhammed's nephew is already serving a life sentence for. U-S law enforcement officials also believe it was Muhammed who dreamed up the idea of crashing commercial jets into the World Trade Center....Muhammed who approved the selection of the 9-11 hijackers and that's it's Muhammed who knows the most about future al Qaeda plans. Sot: Milt Beardon/former CIA Agent "In many ways I would think Americans might be safer today because we have him than if we had Bin Laden himself." That certainly won't stop interrogators from grilling Muhammed about the whereabouts of Osma Bin Laden....and a with a little luck possibly lead to the capture of the world's most wanted man.

e. It is up to them. The UN is insisting that missiles already deployed with Iraqi troops be destroyed first. And with all the missiles, their parts, their fuel, their launchers and the means to make them slated for destruction, the process could take weeks. Saddam Hussein's gathering together today of his elite Republican Guard and Special Republican Guard commanders for a public pep talk was another sign the Iraqis have concluded weeks is all they might have. The Republican Guard units -- unlike Iraq's regular army -- are closely identified with the Saddam, are largely drawn from his home area around the town of Tikrit and can be expected to put up a desperate fight. Still, the UN says the beginnings of missile destruction -- and the fact Iraqi weapons scientist have begun coming forward for private interviews again... are signs of cooperation and of real disarmament. The Iraqis, they say, seem to be trying to provide the inspectors with as much good news as possible for the next report to the UN Security Council due this Friday. But there was one other indication today of how much this inspection process is hanging by a thread. The UN admitted there is an emergency evacuation plan ready to get the inspectors out of the country in a hurry if war looks imminent. MP CBS News Baghdad.))

The 7 point six million dollar golden bathroom is located inside a Hong Kong jewelry shop.
Not only are the commodes gold, the toilet brush and paper holder are also fashioned in 24-carat gold. The washroom attracts around 4,000 visitors every day -- and most of them are from the mainland. And, yes the toilets do work.... thanks to a state-of-the-art automatic flushing system but they are off-limits to tou(------------) rists.
