Breaking news at this hour from
Lynchburg, where school officials say
two students have recently been
diagnosed with bacterial meningitis.

One attends Linkhorne Middle
School, the other Bedford Hills
Elementary.

Educators say there is "no"
eminent risk of the disease spreading
to other students, and that they are
sending home letters to parents warning
of the situation.


Local health officials are "not"
recommending any antibiotic treatment
for students or staff who may have come
into contact with the affected children
in a casual situation. We will have

(DEER- N BA-WROTE) who U-S officials
claim was under orders from Osama

Bin laden to keep surveillance on
several prominent targets in the

United States. That data included

"IT HAD TO DO WITH DETAILED

The three are charged with conspiracy
to use a weapon of mass destruction

Conspiracy as well as providing and
concealing material support to

terrorists

And conspiracy to damage and destroy
buildings used in interstate and

foreign commerce



The men were arrested last year in
England in a separate terror

investigation.



(STANDUP: DREW LEVINSON/NEW YORK)

"BUT AUTHORITIES SAY WHEN THEY WERE
QUESTIONED ABOUT WHAT THEY WERE

DOING OVERTHERE-EVIDENCE CAME OUT THAT
THEY WERE TARGETING SEVERAL

CENTERS OF AMERICAN COMMERCE OVER

EXCHANGE."



They were also allegedly scouting New
York s Citicorp building-----



The prudential building in Newark, New
Jersey----



and the International Monetary fund in
Washington, D.C.

Because of that, last August the

Government raised the risk for a

terrorist attack in New York and
Washington to high-while the rest of

the country remained at elevated.

Before the three can be tried in the
United States-they will first faces

the charges in England-after that a
Justice department official says the

U-S will try to extradite them here.
