The Thai government ended a state of emergency in Bangkok, saying the measure had scared away tourists crucial to the country's economy. Emergency rule was imposed Sept. 2 after a night of violent clashes between anti-government supporters and opponents left one man dead and dozens injured. Images of the mayhem were broadcast around the world, prompting travel advisories from several countries. Calm was quickly restored.

One way to right a wrong is to write a lot, a judge believes. District Judge Mike Erwin sentenced a shoplifter to write 10,000 times: "I will not steal other people's property." Another woman, who pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact to a burglary, had to write 10,000 times: "I will not do anything stupid again." The judge, who has issued dozens of such sentences, said he hopes forcing defendants to write about their crimes will make them think about what they have done.

At least two people were killed when a chain of explosions ripped apart an arms depot in the city of Ulyanovsk, 440 miles east of Moscow, shattering windows for miles around and forcing the evacuation of 3,000 people. A blaze erupted as ammunition was being destroyed at the facility, the Federal Security Service said, with subsequent blasts lighting up the evening sky for five hours. Dozens who took refuge in a shelter were at first feared trapped in the conflagration, but later emerged safe -- dispelling initial fears of a high death toll.

Dozens of rivers swollen by a rapid spring thaw crested their banks in southern Quebec, forcing about 600 people from their homes and causing at least one death, provincial officials said. "We are talking about 50 to 60 rivers that are affected," said Jean-Pierre Bazinet of Quebec's Civil Protection Agency. "What is unusual is that we have many floodings at the same time across a wide region."

Police have strong forensic evidence linking a prominent Irish republican to the shootings of two British soldiers by dissident groups this month, a senior detective testified in court. Suspect Colin Duffy, 41, offered no plea to two criminal counts of murder and five of attempted murder during his high-security appearance at the court in Larne, an overwhelmingly Protestant town 22 miles north of Belfast. Dozens of relatives and friends from Duffy's Irish Catholic power base of Lurgan cheered and applauded as he was led from the courtroom -- handcuffed to a policeman and surrounded by half a dozen other armed officers in flak jackets.

In the worst terrorist attack ever against the United States, hijackers struck at the preeminent symbols of the nation's wealth and might Tuesday, flying airliners into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and killing or injuring thousands of people. As a horrified nation watched on television, the twin towers of the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan collapsed into flaming rubble after two Boeing 767s rammed their upper stories. A third airliner, a Boeing 757, flattened one of the Pentagon's five sides.

As 19 hijackers made their way along the concourses at three East Coast airports on Sept. 11, bent on executing the deadliest terrorist attack in history, they were subjecting the U.S. aviation security system to its most critical test. At almost every step along the way, the system posed no challenge to the terrorists--not to their ability to purchase tickets, to pass security checkpoints while carrying knives and cutting implements nor to board aircraft.
