Zacarias Moussaoui, the man indicted as a Sept. 11 accomplice, tried to speak with prosecutors about the death penalty and classified information but they refused, the government said Thursday. Prosecutors said they were informed of the request Tuesday by a jail official, an indication that Moussaoui, who wants to represent himself in the case, is already trying to do so. Moussaoui, however, cannot make that decision on his own. U.S.

The jokey cliche that your waiter also is an actor has acquired an unfunny edge since Sept. 11. The decline in major sectors of New York's economy since the terrorist attacks means that performers, who always struggle for theatrical work, now are scrambling for traditional "survival jobs" as well. Actor Marco Kujovic, for example, lost his waiting job at the Grill Room in the World Financial Center, a popular dining spot that closed after the World Trade Center disaster next door.

President Bush presented the war against terrorism in deeply religious terms Saturday, as he marked the Christian Easter and Jewish Passover as a period that tells the world "history is of a moral design." "Justice and cruelty have always been at war, and God is not neutral between them. His purposes are often defied but never defeated," the president said in his weekly radio address, expressing the hope that the holidays will renew faith and bring comfort.

Sheila Marie Ornedo, heavy with child, is due to give birth in February. The Los Angeles nurse is alone this Christmas, preparing for her baby girl's arrival without Ruben, her husband, by her side. Ruben is the one who should be massaging her aching back, as he used to; picking her up from work at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and taking her out to dinner, as he used to. He should be helping to fix up the nursery, as he was going to.

In a major crackdown on a Palestinian terrorist organization in the United States, four reputed members have been indicted on racketeering charges that include the killing of a teen-age daughter of one of them to silence her, conspiring to murder Jews and discussing the possibility of blowing up the Israeli Embassy here. The indictment, unsealed Thursday by a federal grand jury in St. Louis, marked the first legal action against the shadowy Abu Nidal organization here.

The people who head Hollywood's media conglomerates are not accustomed to taking meetings without knowing the agenda. But that's exactly what they will do Sunday as about 40 of them sit down in Beverly Hills for brunch with Karl Rove, President Bush's senior advisor. In broad strokes, the White House has said it wants the involvement of the entertainment industry in the campaign against terrorism. There have been hints of having Hollywood create public service announcements.

For 12 years, Dave Szott has looked forward to suiting up on every Sunday in the fall and getting into the trenches with the rest of his offensive line mates to get down and dirty. But, as the NFL is taking its first regular-season Sunday off for reasons other than labor disputes, Szott, the Washington Redskins' starting right guard, will look forward to some down time to reflect on what has been a tumultuous week for himself and his family.

Timothy J. McVeigh was found guilty Monday of the worst act of domestic terrorism in American history and jurors now will decide whether the 29-year-old former soldier should die for bombing the Oklahoma City federal building two years ago. At 1:34 p.m., U.S. District Judge Richard P. Matsch read the verdict to a hushed and crowded second-floor courtroom in downtown Denver: guilty on each of the 11 counts of the indictment.

When FBI and immigration agents arrested Zacarias Moussaoui at his motel in suburban Minneapolis on Aug. 16, they suspected he might be a potential airline hijacker. He wanted to fly "the Big Bird," he'd said. He was in a hurry to learn. And despite more than 50 hours at the controls, he couldn't even solo a single-engine Cessna. But the only direct evidence of his breaking the law were technical violations of his visa. More than seven months later, U.S.

The brother and mother of accused Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui said Monday that they were refusing to answer questions from a U.S. prosecutor because the investigation and impending trial of their relative could result in the death penalty. Abd Samad Moussaoui, the brother of the 33-year-old Frenchman suspected of being the "20th hijacker" in the attacks, met Monday with a U.S. prosecutor and an FBI agent in Montpellier in southern France.

As a light snow fell at dusk, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell showed up at the busy subway station on Pushkin Square here to place a bouquet of red roses beneath a plaque marking the spot where a suitcase bomb killed 13 and injured dozens Aug. 8, 2000. Powell bowed his head as Russian TV cameras filmed the scene. The brief ceremony last December contrasted sharply with President Clinton's visit here barely a month after the attack. Clinton never went near the site.

Several leading Senate Democrats voiced concern Tuesday with a Pentagon plan that calls for the development of new breeds of nuclear weapons and an expansion of the list of nations against whom such warheads might be used. But as the administration continued to downplay the aggressive tone of the so-called Nuclear Posture Review, there were also abundant signs that many lawmakers from both parties are prepared to consider profound changes to the nation's nuclear contingency plans.

Here was the U.S. military in Afghanistan: a bearded soldier riding horseback in a storm of desert sand, looking like something out of "Lawrence of Arabia." But instead of a dagger, he carried a global positioning system, a sophisticated radio transmitter and a laser for marking targets. Flying 35,000 feet above him was a Vietnam-era bomber that had seemed headed for the scrap heap--until the Pentagon loaded it with smart bombs and linked its pilot with the guy on horseback.

Homeland Security chief Thomas J. Ridge said Sunday he is preparing a five-stage, multicolored alert system that will allow federal authorities to more precisely warn the public about domestic terrorism dangers. The system is a response to criticism that the four broad terror alerts issued by the government since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 have alarmed the public while providing little or no useful information.

Six months after the Sept. 11 skyjackings, the Justice Department is planning to send specially trained federal counterterrorism prosecutors to Europe to help press charges against the dozens of suspects taken into custody in recent months. Officials said they hope to reinvigorate law enforcement and intelligence gathering efforts that have achieved major success on some fronts--most notably by preventing numerous attacks against U.S.
