Snedegar assisting patient STORYLINE: With an economic downturn still a reality, more and more American men are beginning to find work in jobs that have been traditionally held by women. Official US figures indicate that of seven (m) million unemployed people in July 2003, more than 4 (m) million were men. The pressure is on men to look for jobs they might not have considered previously, such as nurses or librarians. Timothy Turner and John Snedegar are registered nurses. Turner used to be a coal miner, while Snedegar used to serve in the US military. Snedegar admits that people give him a funny look, when they learn that he is a nurse and not a doctor. Professor Christine Williams of the University of Texas says that during economic hard times, men tend toward jobs in more stable areas of employment.

Lynch's parents and brother spoke at a news conference at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Centre in Germany, a US military hospital near the Ramstein airbase. Lynch's brother, Greg Lynch Junior, who is also a private soldier in the US Army, said his sister was concerned for the families of other personnel in her unit who had been killed or remained captive. Jessica Lynch, a 19-year-old Army supply clerk from Palestine, West Virginia, was captured on 23 March after her 507th Maintenance Company convoy took a wrong near Nasiriyah and ran into an Iraqi ambush. She was rescued on 1 April from a hospital in the southern Iraqi city by US commandos and airlifted to Germany. Lynch was aware that members of her unit were killed, the family said, though it was unclear whether she had asked or had been told by military officials. Doctors have said Lynch is in stable condition in intensive care, where she was being treated for a head wound, an injury to her spine and fractures to her right arm, both legs, and her right foot and ankle. She underwent back surgery Thursday to correct a slipped vertebra that was putting pressure on her spinal cord. Since then, she has undergone several more surgeries to stabilize the fractures.

Cameras 19. Franklin exiting courthouse 20. Franklin crossing road STORYLINE: The FBI arrested a Defence Department analyst on Wednesday on charges that he passed classified information about potential Iranian-backed attacks against US forces in Iraq to employees of a pro-Israel group. Larry Franklin, 58, turned himself in on Wednesday and made a brief appearance in a suburban US District Court and was released on a 100-thousand US dollar bond under the condition he surrender his firearms and passport. The single charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years. A preliminary hearing was set for May 27. Franklin's lawyer, John Richards, said he expects his client will plead not-guilty. The charge is the first in an investigation dating to 2001 about whether Israel improperly obtained classified US information. Franklin, who specialised on Iran and Middle Eastern affairs and had clearance to review top secret information, allegedly gave information to two people without clearance at a lunch meeting in June 2003, FBI agent Catherine Hanna said in an affidavit accompanying the criminal complaint. Hanna said Franklin acknowledged at the lunch that the information was highly classified and asked the two people not to use it. The people at the lunch were employees of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a law enforcement official said on condition of anonymity because they are not identified in court papers. The law enforcement official said it concerned possible attacks against US troops by Iranian-backed groups in Iraq. FBI agents twice searched AIPAC offices as part of the investigation and have interviewed two AIPAC employees about whether Franklin gave them classified information that wound up in Israel's hands. AIPAC said it gave the FBI files related to those same two employees, who previously were identified as Steve Rosen, the director of research, and Keith Weissman, deputy director of foreign policy issues. Neither still works for the group. AIPAC declined to comment on Wednesday, but has previously said it had done nothing wrong and was cooperating with the investigation. The Justice Department said Franklin's top secret security clearance was suspended in June 2004. He formerly worked in the office of policy undersecretary Douglas Feith. The suspension followed a search of Franklin's West Virginia home that turned up 83 classified documents. Franklin holds a doctorate in Asian studies and is a colonel in the Air Force Reserves. The Israeli government has denied spying on the United States, saying that meetings between US and Israeli officials are common and that the two countries share many secrets. Israel said it has imposed a ban on espionage in the United States since the scandal over Jonathan Pollard, a civilian intelligence analyst for the Navy caught spying for Israel in 1985 and sentenced to life in prison.

Kerry's plan will allow all Americans to buy into the same health plan that the President and Members of Congress give themselves and provide health care coverage for every child in America.

Kerry's Plan Will Eliminate Capital Gains Taxes For Long-Term Investments In Small Businesses. Small, entrepreneurial firms play a critical role in creating new jobs and commercializing new technologies. As new companies, they are less wedded to incremental improvements to existing products and services, but often have difficulty attracting capital because of the high degree of risk involved. As president, John Kerry will exempt investments held for five or more years in small businesses -- a proposal that would cost $6 billion over ten years. [http://www.johnkerry.com/issues/economy/small_biz.htm] · John Kerry's Tax Credits To Reduce Small Business Energy Costs. America's small businesses account for more than half of all energy consumption in North America. The growth and development of small businesses depends on an affordable and reliable energy supply. Increasing energy prices have hurt small businesses that are already struggling in this economy. To help small business owners reduce their utility bills, the Kerry-Edwards plan will provide a credit to purchase equipment that meets energy-efficiency standards for heating and cooling in new buildings and to retrofit existing ones. It also provides a 20 percent tax credit for the purchase of energy-efficient building equipment, including electric heat pumps, hot water heaters, and natural gas heat pumps. [http://www.johnkerry.com/issues/economy/small_biz.htm] · John Kerry's Tax Simplification For Small Businesses. America's small businesses are drowning in tax paperwork. The nation's employers are responsible for filing federal and state employment taxes and wage reports, as well as unemployment insurance reports. Just to keep up with these requirements, employers must maintain separate wage records for federal and state income tax withholding, FICA, FUTA, and SUI. In many cases, employers must report this information to government agencies at different times and in different forms. The burden is compounded when employers do business in more than one state, because many states have different legal or procedural requirements. The Kerry-Edwards plan will reduce this burden by simplifying tax filing for small businesses, including allowing the IRS and state agencies to combine - on one form - both State and Federal employment tax returns. [http://www.johnkerry.com/issues/economy/small_biz.htm] · John Kerry and John Edwards' Plan to Build a Stronger Economy: Create Good-Paying Jobs - As president, John Kerry will cut taxes for businesses that create jobs here in America instead of moving them overseas.

"Study: Drug Prices Outpace Inflation; Price Increases Undermine Medicare Discount Card. The price of name-brand prescription drugs most used by seniors has increased by rates substantially above inflation for the past four years, undercutting the potential value of the new Medicare drug discount card, two senior advocacy groups reported today. In a study tracking the prices of 197 of the most widely used brand-named drugs from 2000 to 2003, the group AARP found a cumulative increase of 27.6 percent as compared to a general inflation increase of 10.4 percent. Analyzing the prices of the top 30 name-brand drugs prescribed for seniors, Families USA found an increase on average 4.3 times greater than inflation between January 2003 and January 2004. The AARP report also found that the price escalation has picked up during the past four years: About one quarter of the most-used name brand drugs more than doubled the general inflation rate in 2000, while 87 percent of those same drugs doubled the inflation rate in 2003. The price increases raise the politically sensitive question of how much seniors will really save by using the Medicare cards, which have promised discounts of up to 25 percent for brand-name medications when they go into effect on June 1."

The rising cost of health care is not only hurting families and our economy, it is hurting the practice of medicine and the integrity of the doctor-patient relationship. To reduce the cost of care and stabilize the system for patients and doctors, the Kerry-Edwards plan includes: 1) Covering catastrophic care, which could reduce the average annual premium for a family by up to $1,000 each year 2) Making prescription drugs more affordable by requiring HHS to negotiate better prices; allowing re-importation so Americans can get the discounts available in Canada; requiring transparency rules for Pharmacy Benefit Managers that do business with the Federal government; and helping states provide discounts to other populations through more efficient contracting and 3) Using technology to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse in the health care system by simplifying medical administrative and reporting systems.

STILL of Snow in White House press briefing room STORYLINE Tony Snow, a conservative writer and commentator who cheerfully sparred with reporters in the White House briefing room during a stint as US President George W Bush's press secretary, died Saturday of colon cancer. He was 53. Snow died at 2 a.m. (0600GMT) at Georgetown University Hospital, according to former employer Fox News. Snow, who served as the first host of the television news programme "Fox News Sunday" on the Fox News Channel from 1996 to 2003, would later say that in the Bush administration he was enjoying "the most exciting, intellectually aerobic job I'm ever going to have." Snow was working for Fox News Channel and Fox News Radio when he replaced Scott McClellan as press secretary in May 2006 during a White House shake-up. Unlike McClellan, who came to define caution and bland delivery from the White House podium, Snow was never shy about playing to the cameras. With a quick-from-the-lip repartee, broadcaster's good looks and a relentlessly bright outlook - if not always a command of the facts - he became a popular figure among some, to the delight of his White House bosses. "America has lost a devoted public servant and a man of character," Bush said in a statement from Camp David, where he was spending the weekend. "It was a joy to watch Tony at the podium each day. He brought wit, grace, and a great love of country to his work." He served just 17 months as press secretary, a tenure interrupted by his second bout with cancer. In 2005 doctors had removed his colon and he began six months of chemotherapy. In March 2007 a cancerous growth was removed from his abdominal area and he spent five weeks recuperating before returning to the White House. Snow resigned as Bush's chief spokesman last September, citing not his health but a need to earn more than the 168,000 US dollars a year he was paid in the government post. In April, he joined CNN as a commentator. As press secretary, Snow brought partisan zeal and the skills of a seasoned performer to the task of explaining and defending the president's policies. During daily briefings, he challenged reporters, scolded them and questioned their motives as if he were starring in a TV show broadcast live from the West Wing. Critics suggested that Snow was turning the traditionally informational daily briefing into a personality-driven media event short on facts and long on confrontation. He was the first press secretary, by his own accounting, to travel the country raising money for Republican candidates. Although a star in conservative politics, as a commentator he had not always been on the president's side. He once called Bush "something of an embarrassment" in conservative circles and criticised what he called Bush's "lacklustre" domestic policy. Most of Snow's career in journalism involved expressing his conservative views. Snow was the editorial page editor of The Newport News (Virginia) Daily Press and deputy editorial page editor of The Detroit News before moving to Washington in 1987 to become editorial page editor of the conservative Washington Times. Snow left journalism in 1991 to join the administration of the President George H W Bush as director of speechwriting and deputy assistant to the president for media affairs. He then rejoined the news media to write nationally syndicated columns for The Detroit News and USA Today during much of the Clinton administration. Roger Ailes, chairman of Fox News, called Snow a "renaissance man". Robert Anthony Snow was born June 1, 1955, in Berea, Kentucky, and spent his childhood in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area.

Various of protestors waving arms and chanting STORYLINE: A large weapons cache has been uncovered close to the Palestine Hotel, where many western journalists have been staying in Baghdad. The cache was said to have ben pointed out to coalition troops by local people, and the building is understood to have been a regular house used by the Iraqi military. The building has since been looted by locals. It has now been seized by the US military who are expected to bulldoze it, or blow it up. The Iraqi capital remains tense with sporadic fire and heavy military presence around the Palestine Hotel. Meanwhile, the first Catholic mass has been celebrated in Baghdad since the city fell. Up to one hundred people attended the service at the Church of Virgin Mary, Karada, in central Baghdad. Also in central Baghdad, Iraqis met to start rebuilding their city and its infrastructure. A handful of US Marine civil affairs officers had summoned groups of Iraqi water, electrical and police civil servants to the Palestine Hotel, where US forces more or less have set up a base. The hotel was packed with civilians along with members from the old regime who were keen to restore some sense of order and government to Iraq. At an initial briefing, the civilians were told by one of the Iraqi organisers that all the other major cities in the country have been "liberated" and were now looking to Baghdad as to the way forward. But one participant found it difficult to work with those who had belonged to Saddam Hussein's government. The man shouted at police officers who were at the meeting saying "We don't need you...you are full of wrong-doing". Tensions were also high outside the hotel where a group of civilians had gathered. Despite the tensions, Iraqi civil servants at the meeting divided themselves into groups based on their specific skills as the first step in restoring structure to a city, and country, in chaos. Meanwhile, the Iraqi Trade Ministry was in flames as looting continued in pockets of Baghdad - with the people expressing their hatred of all the former symbols of power. Close to the burning building, a US Marine division captured a small group believed to be Saddam's Fedayeen fighters. The PoW's were interrogated by the American soldiers as they sat handcuffed and blindfolded on the ground. Marines also discovered a cache of rifles, rocket propelled grenades and bazookas. ****************************************************************** US FRANKS: FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS STORY: ++US Franks - NEW US supreme Commander Franks on POWs LENGTH: 0:38 FIRST RUN: 1255 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369511 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ABC - Must Courtesy ABC "This Week" No Access North America / Internet 1.

What we don't know right now George is whether these are 6 of the youngsters we had categorised as prisoners, some of whom we've seen on television or whether these are from the category of troops that we had listed missing in action. So we are not sure yet, but we are very happy that we have these 6 Americans back with us now and they are in safe hands." STORYLINE: US Marines have found missing American soldiers on the road between Baghdad and Tikrit and they appear to be healthy, General Tommy Franks said on Sunday. Franks said he had been reluctant to release the information because he was unsure whether the group was among five listed as missing, or seven listed as POWs. Franks originally said six Americans had been found. Brigadier General Vincent Brooks at Central Command in Qatar later updated this to seven. Shortly after Brooks spoke to reporters, it was confirmed they were servicemen - and they were safe. ****************************************************************** JERUS PALM SUNDAY: CHRISTIANS GATHER ON MOUNT OF OLIVES TO CELEBRATE PALM SUNDAY STORY: ++Jerus Palm Sunday - NEW Christians gather on Mount of Olives to celebrate Palm Sunday LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369512 DATELINE: Jerusalem - 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: Mount of Olives near the Old City, East Jerusalem 1.

Despite the measures, officials reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, bringing the city-state's death toll to 12. Four new cases were reported on Sunday, for a total of 151. Two of the new deaths occurred at Singapore General Hospital, where at least 30 people have contracted SARS, the Health Ministry said. The third was a 90-year-old woman who died 30 March. Doctors originally put the cause of death as pneumonia, but now attribute it to SARS. Many victims around the world have been healthcare workers. Also on Sunday, the luxury cruise liner SuperStar Virgo returned to Singapore after being disinfected off the city-state's coast, said Lim Lily, a spokeswoman for Star Cruises, the ship's owners. Two crew members had been hospitalized for suspected SARS. Lim said 13 quarantined crew, who had come into contact with the two patients, remained isolated on board while the rest of the 1300 crew are staying in another area of the ship. Authorities said new tough measures are necessary to prevent the illness from spreading. Singapore has placed 608 people under home quarantine as of Sunday, and authorities said Web cams will be installed in their homes to ensure they don't leave. SARS has killed at least 133 people and sickened about 3-thousand in at least 20 countries. The illness has no known cure. Symptoms include shortness of breath, fever, coughing and body aches. ***************************************************************** US LYNCH STORY: ++US Lynch - NEW Medical briefing on Pte Lynch's state LENGTH: 2:31 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: Part No NAmerica/Internet TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL/ABC STORY NUMBER: 369519 DATELINE: 12/13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE, 13 APRIL 2003) POOL - APTN CLIENTS ONLY 1.

The 19-year-old returned on Saturday aboard a C-17 military ambulance from Germany to Andrews Air Force Base near the capital, along with her immediate family and some four-dozen wounded soldiers. "We do not have her visiting other soldiers, or have other soldiers visit her because we are so early into her arrival. We want to make sure she's happy and that she's doing well," said Major General Kevin Kiley, a spokesman from the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre on Sunday. Kiley refused to discuss Lynch's injuries, treatment or any other aspect of her condition because he wanted to protect her privacy. The supply clerk, from Palestine, West Virginia, was captured on March 23 after her 507th Maintenance Company convoy was ambushed in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. She was rescued from an Iraqi hospital in the city April 1 by US commandos, reportedly after a tip from an Iraqi lawyer. ****************************************************************** 11:20:48 STILL WATBAN 11:20:56 STILL PHOT OF SADDAM'S BROTHER, REPORTS THAT HE MAY STILL BE ALIVE STORY: ++STILL Watban - NEW Reports that Saddam's half brother Watban has been captured LENGTH: 0:10 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Mute SOURCE: DoD STORY NUMBER: 369522 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1. Still of Watban al-Tikriti, Saddam Hussein's half-brother STORYLINE: A half-brother of Saddam Hussein has been captured in northern Iraq, a Kurdish television station reported Sunday. Watban al-Tikriti, a former interior minister and one of Saddam's advisers, was found northwest of Mosul, according to KTV, a station operated by the Kurdistan Democratic Party, one of the two main Kurdish factions. Watban was attempting to reach Syria, the station said. Mosul itself came under control of Kurdish fighters and US troops on Friday after Iraqi forces gave up without a fight. The station gave no other details. Kurdish officials reached by The Associated Press could not immediately confirm the report. In 1995, Al-Tikriti was wounded in a shooting by Saddam's son, Odai, during a quarrel over family matters. Saddam has other half-brothers, including Barzan al-Tikriti, a former Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations in Switzerland, and Sab'awi Ibrahim al-Hassan al-Tikriti. Their whereabouts is currently not known, though there are unconfirmed reports that Barzan al-Tikriti, was killed on Friday morning, when the US bombed his farm, in the region of Ramadi west of Baghdad. ****************************************************************** 11:21:11 BASRA WRAP 11:21:40 TRAFFIC AND IRAQI SOLDIER ON STREET SIDE 11:21:57 CARS AND TRUCKS DRIVING 11:22:06 UK SOLDIER STANDING 11:22:19 UK : THIS FIRST PATROL, WE NEED TO REVALIDATE THEM, MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC WILLACCEPT THEM 11:22:40 "WE HAVE THE LANGUAGE BARRIER 11:22:47 SOT (IRAQI): I AM NOW JUST TRYING TO CHECK THE STOLEN CAR 11:23:00 NEWSPAPERS IN BASRA 11:23:01 UK SOLDIER TOSSES NEWSPAPER 11:23:14 CHAOS 11:23:18 SOLDIER STANDING ON TOP OF TANK DISTRIBUTING NEWSPAPERS 11:23:34 UK SOLDIER: FIRST EXAMPLE OF FREE PRESS FOR IRAQ 11:23:49 THIS HAS BEEN WRITTNE BY THE LOCALS, WE'RE HERE TO HELP AND BUILD A FUTURE FOR THEIR COUNTRY 11:24:06 RUBBLE SHOTS, OF BUILDINGS STORY: +Basra Wrap - WRAP Iraqi policemen work with British troops, new newspaper distributed LENGTH: 3:01 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: UK MOD/APTN STORY NUMBER: 369518 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE - 13 APRIL 2003) APTN 1.

Mid shot destroyed building in Basra 12. Close shot damage 13. Pan of damaged building STORYLINE: British troops and Iraqi policemen worked together in Basra on Sunday - the first stage in efforts to re-install a local police force in Iraq's second city. The southern city has been the scene of mass looting in recent days after the Iraqi regime was ousted. The policemen, the first patrol in the city since the collapse of Saddam Hussein's rule, took to the streets Sunday, albeit in a limited capacity, in a bid to restore civil order. The men helped British troops check cars and tried to establish which vehicles were stolen. One of the soldiers involved in the project said the aim was to see if the local population would accept the force. "If they don't" he said "we'll have to look at another idea all together." British military officials say that the looting is slowly coming under control in the port city, but that the help of the local community is needed to restore order. Britain's Ministry of Defence said Sunday in a statement it had sent two civilian police officials to Basra, to advise local officials and British troops on establishing order. The defence ministry said in the statement: "These officers will give advice to the British commanders in Basra on how to vet the local Iraqi police and then develop a close relationship with them." Also Sunday, British troops distributed a newspaper to local Iraqis on Sunday that military officials said was written "by Iraqis for Iraqis." Speaking in Basra, Major David Kemmisbetty from the Black Watch Regiment that is patrolling the city, said the newspaper was the first opportunity in many years for Iraqis to receive information not vetted by the Baath party. He said "(this is) the first time they've had a newspaper from outside that hasn't been directed by the Ba'ath party, and hasn't been Saddam's message." He added that most of the content had been written by local Iraqis, but with "a bit of input by the military explaining what we are up to." ****************************************************************** 11:27:56 RILEY FAMILY STATEMENT 11:28:05 REVEREND SOT STORY: ++US POW Family - WRAP Family of POW found safe interviewed LENGTH: 1:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No North America/Internet TYPE: English/ Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369517 DATELINE: Pennsauken, NJ, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

US troops outside building STORYLINE: U.S. forces were consolidating their control over Kirkuk on Sunday, as emergency water supplies began arriving in the vital northern oil city. Outside the city, on the road to Irbil, a US military checkpoint was monitoring traffic. And at the US military base - set up at the city's former airport - water tankers were starting to arrive. Despite getting fresh water however, some locals were clearly unhappy and disillusioned with the American forces. One local man emphasised the need for local municipal services to be re-established, lest the population become the victim of gangs. Meanwhile, in the city, US military chiefs were meeting with local authorities and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) personnel in the first steps towards setting up a new administration. Kurdish fighters who took over the city said they would yield to the Americans once enough of them arrived to secure law and order. US military personnel were unable to substantiate earlier rumours of a discovery of chemical missile warheads in the town. ****************************************************************** 11:30:20 STILLS OF POWS STORY: ++POW Stills - NEW Still images of recovered US POWs LENGTH: 0:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Canada TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: AP PHOTOS STORY NUMBER: 369527 DATELINE: Nr Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

(AP Photo/Wally Santana) STORYLINE: Iraqi troops released seven captured U.S. soldiers -some wounded but in good condition - to Marines on Sunday, near where U.S. troops were entering Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit. Clad in an assortment of pajamas and shorts, the soldiers clambered out of helicopters to a delighted welcome at an air base in southern Iraq, hours after their release. The seven were taken by helicopter to this base near Kut and flown to a military airport south of Kuwait City. Ronald Young Sr. identified one of the Americans in shaky video shown by CNN as his son, Chief Warrant Officer Ronald D. Young Jr., who was listed as a POW after his Apache helicopter was forced down March 23. Also among the seven was Chief Warrant Officer David S. Williams, 30, who was in the Apache with Young. Relatives identified the others as four members of the 507th Ordnance Maintenance Company that was ambushed outside of the southern city of Nasiriyah on March 23: Army Spc. Shoshana Johnson, 30, Fort Bliss, Texas, Army Sgt. James Riley, 31, Pennsauken, New Jersey, Army Spc. Joseph Hudson, 23, Alamogordo, New Mexico, and Army Pfc. Patrick Miller, 23, Park City, Kansas. The six had been listed as POWs. The seventh soldier was not immediately identified, and the Pentagon was in the process of notifying families. Riley, Miller, Hudson and Johnson were among five POWs shown on Iraqi television. The fifth was Spc. Edgar Hernandez, 21, of Mission, Texas. His family couldn't immediately be reached Sunday morning. One of the men found Sunday raised his fist in the air and smiled slightly as he strode from the helicopter at the southern Iraq airbase. Another limped, apparently with an injured right ankle. Some wore blue-and-white striped pajamas, another was in blue shorts. Marines at this base came forward to applaud and pat them on the back. Capt. David Romley said Marines marching north toward Tikrit were met by Iraqi soldiers north of Samarra who approached the 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Company, and the seven Americans were with them. ****************************************************************** 11:31:44 SOLDIERS IN KIRKUK 11:36:40 OMAN TV CHANGE TAPE ****************************************************************** 12:01:54 MIDDLE EAST BULLETIN 12:01:59 BAGHDAD WRAP: AFTERNOON'S EVENTS 12:02:09 SOLDIERS LEADING AWAY UNRULEY IRAQI 12:02:21 12:02:21 LARGE GROUP OD IRAQIS MARCHING THROUGH STREETS 12:02:33 IRAQIS RUSH INTO BUILDING, YOU CAN HEAR THE PRAYER CALLS 12:02:46 IRAQIS IN A MOSQUE WITH MAN CHANTING AND THEY REPEAT WHAT HE SAYS 12:03:09 GROUP OD IRAQIS WALKING DOWN STREET 12:03:17 GROUP OF IRAQI WOMEN CRYING AND PLEADING 12:03:26 DAE 12:04:20 IRAQIS TRYING TO FIX POWER LINES 12:04:29 IRAQIS CLEANING UP STREET, SHOVELLING DIRT AND DEBRIS IN THE CENTER OF THE ROAD ****************************************************************** 12:04:52 US FRANKS 2 12:04:58 FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS: HE COMMENTS ON THE POWS FOUND ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, FSG OF 7 POWS FOUND ****************************************************************** 12:08:20 STILLS OF US SOLDIERS (POWS) BEING RESCUED (MORE THAN ONE, VARIOUS) ****************************************************************** 12:08:53 STILL OF WATBAN: REPORTS THAT SADDAM'S HALF BROTHER HAS BEEN CAPTURE ***************************************************************** 12:09:10 BASRA WRAP ****************************************************************** 12:12:25 TIKRIT ROAD 12:12:39 IRAQI CHECKPOINT 12:12:42 TANK ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WTH SHEEP ON THE SIDE 12:12:47 BOYS CLIMBING ON TANK STORY: ++Tikrit Road - NEW Checkpoints and burnt out vehicles on the road between Irbil and Tikrit LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369524 DATELINE: Near Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Abandoned tank on the road STORYLINE: The Northern Iraqi road between Irbil and Saddam Hussein's last stronghold Tikrit, was quiet on Sunday despite reports that fighters loyal to Saddam Hussein's regime were still holding out Tikrit. Just forty kilometres (24 miles) out of Tikrit, the road appeared empty except for some abandoned military vehicles and local Iraqis walking along the road. Meanwhile, the US Commander in charge of coalition forces in Iraq said U.S. troops had pushed into Tikrit on Sunday - power center for Iraq's Sunni Muslim tribes that is believed to be one of the last strongholds of fighters loyal to President Saddam Hussein. Along the way, U.S. Marines rescued seven U.S. soldiers who had been captured by Iraqi forces earlier in the war. All were believed to be in good health. Franks said his troops had met no resistance as they entered Tikrit. He wouldn't say that the war was over, rather that "we have American forces in Tikrit right now." He did not indicate whether the forces were in the center or the outskirts of town, and did not say whether it had fallen. Tikrit is about 90 miles (145 kilometers) north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad. U.S. officials have played down the prospect of a major battle in Tikrit because of desertions and damage from repeated airstrikes. 12:14:32 END OF BULLETIN ***************************************************************** 12:15:20 SPORTS

Various of protestors waving arms and chanting STORYLINE: A large weapons cache has been uncovered close to the Palestine Hotel, where many western journalists have been staying in Baghdad. The cache was said to have ben pointed out to coalition troops by local people, and the building is understood to have been a regular house used by the Iraqi military. The building has since been looted by locals. It has now been seized by the US military who are expected to bulldoze it, or blow it up. The Iraqi capital remains tense with sporadic fire and heavy military presence around the Palestine Hotel. Meanwhile, the first Catholic mass has been celebrated in Baghdad since the city fell. Up to one hundred people attended the service at the Church of Virgin Mary, Karada, in central Baghdad. Also in central Baghdad, Iraqis met to start rebuilding their city and its infrastructure. A handful of US Marine civil affairs officers had summoned groups of Iraqi water, electrical and police civil servants to the Palestine Hotel, where US forces more or less have set up a base. The hotel was packed with civilians along with members from the old regime who were keen to restore some sense of order and government to Iraq. At an initial briefing, the civilians were told by one of the Iraqi organisers that all the other major cities in the country have been "liberated" and were now looking to Baghdad as to the way forward. But one participant found it difficult to work with those who had belonged to Saddam Hussein's government. The man shouted at police officers who were at the meeting saying "We don't need you...you are full of wrong-doing". Tensions were also high outside the hotel where a group of civilians had gathered. Despite the tensions, Iraqi civil servants at the meeting divided themselves into groups based on their specific skills as the first step in restoring structure to a city, and country, in chaos. Meanwhile, the Iraqi Trade Ministry was in flames as looting continued in pockets of Baghdad - with the people expressing their hatred of all the former symbols of power. Close to the burning building, a US Marine division captured a small group believed to be Saddam's Fedayeen fighters. The PoW's were interrogated by the American soldiers as they sat handcuffed and blindfolded on the ground. Marines also discovered a cache of rifles, rocket propelled grenades and bazookas. ****************************************************************** US FRANKS: FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS STORY: ++US Franks - NEW US supreme Commander Franks on POWs LENGTH: 0:38 FIRST RUN: 1255 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369511 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ABC - Must Courtesy ABC "This Week" No Access North America / Internet 1.

What we don't know right now George is whether these are 6 of the youngsters we had categorised as prisoners, some of whom we've seen on television or whether these are from the category of troops that we had listed missing in action. So we are not sure yet, but we are very happy that we have these 6 Americans back with us now and they are in safe hands." STORYLINE: US Marines have found missing American soldiers on the road between Baghdad and Tikrit and they appear to be healthy, General Tommy Franks said on Sunday. Franks said he had been reluctant to release the information because he was unsure whether the group was among five listed as missing, or seven listed as POWs. Franks originally said six Americans had been found. Brigadier General Vincent Brooks at Central Command in Qatar later updated this to seven. Shortly after Brooks spoke to reporters, it was confirmed they were servicemen - and they were safe. ****************************************************************** JERUS PALM SUNDAY: CHRISTIANS GATHER ON MOUNT OF OLIVES TO CELEBRATE PALM SUNDAY STORY: ++Jerus Palm Sunday - NEW Christians gather on Mount of Olives to celebrate Palm Sunday LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369512 DATELINE: Jerusalem - 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: Mount of Olives near the Old City, East Jerusalem 1.

Despite the measures, officials reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, bringing the city-state's death toll to 12. Four new cases were reported on Sunday, for a total of 151. Two of the new deaths occurred at Singapore General Hospital, where at least 30 people have contracted SARS, the Health Ministry said. The third was a 90-year-old woman who died 30 March. Doctors originally put the cause of death as pneumonia, but now attribute it to SARS. Many victims around the world have been healthcare workers. Also on Sunday, the luxury cruise liner SuperStar Virgo returned to Singapore after being disinfected off the city-state's coast, said Lim Lily, a spokeswoman for Star Cruises, the ship's owners. Two crew members had been hospitalized for suspected SARS. Lim said 13 quarantined crew, who had come into contact with the two patients, remained isolated on board while the rest of the 1300 crew are staying in another area of the ship. Authorities said new tough measures are necessary to prevent the illness from spreading. Singapore has placed 608 people under home quarantine as of Sunday, and authorities said Web cams will be installed in their homes to ensure they don't leave. SARS has killed at least 133 people and sickened about 3-thousand in at least 20 countries. The illness has no known cure. Symptoms include shortness of breath, fever, coughing and body aches. ***************************************************************** US LYNCH STORY: ++US Lynch - NEW Medical briefing on Pte Lynch's state LENGTH: 2:31 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: Part No NAmerica/Internet TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL/ABC STORY NUMBER: 369519 DATELINE: 12/13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE, 13 APRIL 2003) POOL - APTN CLIENTS ONLY 1.

"We do not have her visiting other soldiers, or have other soldiers visit her because we are so early into her arrival. We want to make sure she's happy and that she's doing well," said Major General Kevin Kiley, a spokesman from the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre on Sunday. Kiley refused to discuss Lynch's injuries, treatment or any other aspect of her condition because he wanted to protect her privacy. The supply clerk, from Palestine, West Virginia, was captured on March 23 after her 507th Maintenance Company convoy was ambushed in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. She was rescued from an Iraqi hospital in the city April 1 by US commandos, reportedly after a tip from an Iraqi lawyer. ****************************************************************** 11:20:48 STILL WATBAN 11:20:56 STILL PHOT OF SADDAM'S BROTHER, REPORTS THAT HE MAY STILL BE ALIVE STORY: ++STILL Watban - NEW Reports that Saddam's half brother Watban has been captured LENGTH: 0:10 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Mute SOURCE: DoD STORY NUMBER: 369522 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1. Still of Watban al-Tikriti, Saddam Hussein's half-brother STORYLINE: A half-brother of Saddam Hussein has been captured in northern Iraq, a Kurdish television station reported Sunday. Watban al-Tikriti, a former interior minister and one of Saddam's advisers, was found northwest of Mosul, according to KTV, a station operated by the Kurdistan Democratic Party, one of the two main Kurdish factions. Watban was attempting to reach Syria, the station said. Mosul itself came under control of Kurdish fighters and US troops on Friday after Iraqi forces gave up without a fight. The station gave no other details. Kurdish officials reached by The Associated Press could not immediately confirm the report. In 1995, Al-Tikriti was wounded in a shooting by Saddam's son, Odai, during a quarrel over family matters. Saddam has other half-brothers, including Barzan al-Tikriti, a former Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations in Switzerland, and Sab'awi Ibrahim al-Hassan al-Tikriti. Their whereabouts is currently not known, though there are unconfirmed reports that Barzan al-Tikriti, was killed on Friday morning, when the US bombed his farm, in the region of Ramadi west of Baghdad. ****************************************************************** 11:21:11 BASRA WRAP 11:21:40 TRAFFIC AND IRAQI SOLDIER ON STREET SIDE 11:21:57 CARS AND TRUCKS DRIVING 11:22:06 UK SOLDIER STANDING 11:22:19 UK : THIS FIRST PATROL, WE NEED TO REVALIDATE THEM, MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC WILLACCEPT THEM 11:22:40 "WE HAVE THE LANGUAGE BARRIER 11:22:47 SOT (IRAQI): I AM NOW JUST TRYING TO CHECK THE STOLEN CAR 11:23:00 NEWSPAPERS IN BASRA 11:23:01 UK SOLDIER TOSSES NEWSPAPER 11:23:14 CHAOS 11:23:18 SOLDIER STANDING ON TOP OF TANK DISTRIBUTING NEWSPAPERS 11:23:34 UK SOLDIER: FIRST EXAMPLE OF FREE PRESS FOR IRAQ 11:23:49 THIS HAS BEEN WRITTNE BY THE LOCALS, WE'RE HERE TO HELP AND BUILD A FUTURE FOR THEIR COUNTRY 11:24:06 RUBBLE SHOTS, OF BUILDINGS STORY: +Basra Wrap - WRAP Iraqi policemen work with British troops, new newspaper distributed LENGTH: 3:01 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: UK MOD/APTN STORY NUMBER: 369518 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE - 13 APRIL 2003) APTN 1.

Mid shot destroyed building in Basra 12. Close shot damage 13. Pan of damaged building STORYLINE: British troops and Iraqi policemen worked together in Basra on Sunday - the first stage in efforts to re-install a local police force in Iraq's second city. The southern city has been the scene of mass looting in recent days after the Iraqi regime was ousted. The policemen, the first patrol in the city since the collapse of Saddam Hussein's rule, took to the streets Sunday, albeit in a limited capacity, in a bid to restore civil order. The men helped British troops check cars and tried to establish which vehicles were stolen. One of the soldiers involved in the project said the aim was to see if the local population would accept the force. "If they don't" he said "we'll have to look at another idea all together." British military officials say that the looting is slowly coming under control in the port city, but that the help of the local community is needed to restore order. Britain's Ministry of Defence said Sunday in a statement it had sent two civilian police officials to Basra, to advise local officials and British troops on establishing order. The defence ministry said in the statement: "These officers will give advice to the British commanders in Basra on how to vet the local Iraqi police and then develop a close relationship with them." Also Sunday, British troops distributed a newspaper to local Iraqis on Sunday that military officials said was written "by Iraqis for Iraqis." Speaking in Basra, Major David Kemmisbetty from the Black Watch Regiment that is patrolling the city, said the newspaper was the first opportunity in many years for Iraqis to receive information not vetted by the Baath party. He said "(this is) the first time they've had a newspaper from outside that hasn't been directed by the Ba'ath party, and hasn't been Saddam's message." He added that most of the content had been written by local Iraqis, but with "a bit of input by the military explaining what we are up to." ****************************************************************** 11:27:56 RILEY FAMILY STATEMENT 11:28:05 REVEREND SOT STORY: ++US POW Family - WRAP Family of POW found safe interviewed LENGTH: 1:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No North America/Internet TYPE: English/ Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369517 DATELINE: Pennsauken, NJ, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

US troops outside building STORYLINE: U.S. forces were consolidating their control over Kirkuk on Sunday, as emergency water supplies began arriving in the vital northern oil city. Outside the city, on the road to Irbil, a US military checkpoint was monitoring traffic. And at the US military base - set up at the city's former airport - water tankers were starting to arrive. Despite getting fresh water however, some locals were clearly unhappy and disillusioned with the American forces. One local man emphasised the need for local municipal services to be re-established, lest the population become the victim of gangs. Meanwhile, in the city, US military chiefs were meeting with local authorities and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) personnel in the first steps towards setting up a new administration. Kurdish fighters who took over the city said they would yield to the Americans once enough of them arrived to secure law and order. US military personnel were unable to substantiate earlier rumours of a discovery of chemical missile warheads in the town. ****************************************************************** 11:30:20 STILLS OF POWS STORY: ++POW Stills - NEW Still images of recovered US POWs LENGTH: 0:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Canada TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: AP PHOTOS STORY NUMBER: 369527 DATELINE: Nr Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

(AP Photo/Wally Santana) STORYLINE: Iraqi troops released seven captured U.S. soldiers -some wounded but in good condition - to Marines on Sunday, near where U.S. troops were entering Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit. Clad in an assortment of pajamas and shorts, the soldiers clambered out of helicopters to a delighted welcome at an air base in southern Iraq, hours after their release. The seven were taken by helicopter to this base near Kut and flown to a military airport south of Kuwait City. Ronald Young Sr. identified one of the Americans in shaky video shown by CNN as his son, Chief Warrant Officer Ronald D. Young Jr., who was listed as a POW after his Apache helicopter was forced down March 23. Also among the seven was Chief Warrant Officer David S. Williams, 30, who was in the Apache with Young. Relatives identified the others as four members of the 507th Ordnance Maintenance Company that was ambushed outside of the southern city of Nasiriyah on March 23: Army Spc. Shoshana Johnson, 30, Fort Bliss, Texas, Army Sgt. James Riley, 31, Pennsauken, New Jersey, Army Spc. Joseph Hudson, 23, Alamogordo, New Mexico, and Army Pfc. Patrick Miller, 23, Park City, Kansas. The six had been listed as POWs. The seventh soldier was not immediately identified, and the Pentagon was in the process of notifying families. Riley, Miller, Hudson and Johnson were among five POWs shown on Iraqi television. The fifth was Spc. Edgar Hernandez, 21, of Mission, Texas. His family couldn't immediately be reached Sunday morning. One of the men found Sunday raised his fist in the air and smiled slightly as he strode from the helicopter at the southern Iraq airbase. Another limped, apparently with an injured right ankle. Some wore blue-and-white striped pajamas, another was in blue shorts. Marines at this base came forward to applaud and pat them on the back. Capt. David Romley said Marines marching north toward Tikrit were met by Iraqi soldiers north of Samarra who approached the 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Company, and the seven Americans were with them. ****************************************************************** 11:31:44 SOLDIERS IN KIRKUK 11:36:40 OMAN TV CHANGE TAPE ****************************************************************** 12:01:54 MIDDLE EAST BULLETIN 12:01:59 BAGHDAD WRAP: AFTERNOON'S EVENTS 12:02:09 SOLDIERS LEADING AWAY UNRULEY IRAQI 12:02:21 12:02:21 LARGE GROUP OD IRAQIS MARCHING THROUGH STREETS 12:02:33 IRAQIS RUSH INTO BUILDING, YOU CAN HEAR THE PRAYER CALLS 12:02:46 IRAQIS IN A MOSQUE WITH MAN CHANTING AND THEY REPEAT WHAT HE SAYS 12:03:09 GROUP OD IRAQIS WALKING DOWN STREET 12:03:17 GROUP OF IRAQI WOMEN CRYING AND PLEADING 12:03:26 DAE 12:04:20 IRAQIS TRYING TO FIX POWER LINES 12:04:29 IRAQIS CLEANING UP STREET, SHOVELLING DIRT AND DEBRIS IN THE CENTER OF THE ROAD ****************************************************************** 12:04:52 US FRANKS 2 12:04:58 FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS: HE COMMENTS ON THE POWS FOUND ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, FSG OF 7 POWS FOUND ****************************************************************** 12:08:20 STILLS OF US SOLDIERS (POWS) BEING RESCUED (MORE THAN ONE, VARIOUS) ****************************************************************** 12:08:53 STILL OF WATBAN: REPORTS THAT SADDAM'S HALF BROTHER HAS BEEN CAPTURE ***************************************************************** 12:09:10 BASRA WRAP ****************************************************************** 12:12:25 TIKRIT ROAD 12:12:39 IRAQI CHECKPOINT 12:12:42 TANK ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WTH SHEEP ON THE SIDE 12:12:47 BOYS CLIMBING ON TANK STORY: ++Tikrit Road - NEW Checkpoints and burnt out vehicles on the road between Irbil and Tikrit LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369524 DATELINE: Near Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Abandoned tank on the road STORYLINE: The Northern Iraqi road between Irbil and Saddam Hussein's last stronghold Tikrit, was quiet on Sunday despite reports that fighters loyal to Saddam Hussein's regime were still holding out Tikrit. Just forty kilometres (24 miles) out of Tikrit, the road appeared empty except for some abandoned military vehicles and local Iraqis walking along the road. Meanwhile, the US Commander in charge of coalition forces in Iraq said U.S. troops had pushed into Tikrit on Sunday - power center for Iraq's Sunni Muslim tribes that is believed to be one of the last strongholds of fighters loyal to President Saddam Hussein. Along the way, U.S. Marines rescued seven U.S. soldiers who had been captured by Iraqi forces earlier in the war. All were believed to be in good health. Franks said his troops had met no resistance as they entered Tikrit. He wouldn't say that the war was over, rather that "we have American forces in Tikrit right now." He did not indicate whether the forces were in the center or the outskirts of town, and did not say whether it had fallen. Tikrit is about 90 miles (145 kilometers) north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad. U.S. officials have played down the prospect of a major battle in Tikrit because of desertions and damage from repeated airstrikes. 12:14:32 END OF BULLETIN ***************************************************************** 12:15:20 SPORTS

Various of protestors waving arms and chanting STORYLINE: A large weapons cache has been uncovered close to the Palestine Hotel, where many western journalists have been staying in Baghdad. The cache was said to have ben pointed out to coalition troops by local people, and the building is understood to have been a regular house used by the Iraqi military. The building has since been looted by locals. It has now been seized by the US military who are expected to bulldoze it, or blow it up. The Iraqi capital remains tense with sporadic fire and heavy military presence around the Palestine Hotel. Meanwhile, the first Catholic mass has been celebrated in Baghdad since the city fell. Up to one hundred people attended the service at the Church of Virgin Mary, Karada, in central Baghdad. Also in central Baghdad, Iraqis met to start rebuilding their city and its infrastructure. A handful of US Marine civil affairs officers had summoned groups of Iraqi water, electrical and police civil servants to the Palestine Hotel, where US forces more or less have set up a base. The hotel was packed with civilians along with members from the old regime who were keen to restore some sense of order and government to Iraq. At an initial briefing, the civilians were told by one of the Iraqi organisers that all the other major cities in the country have been "liberated" and were now looking to Baghdad as to the way forward. But one participant found it difficult to work with those who had belonged to Saddam Hussein's government. The man shouted at police officers who were at the meeting saying "We don't need you...you are full of wrong-doing". Tensions were also high outside the hotel where a group of civilians had gathered. Despite the tensions, Iraqi civil servants at the meeting divided themselves into groups based on their specific skills as the first step in restoring structure to a city, and country, in chaos. Meanwhile, the Iraqi Trade Ministry was in flames as looting continued in pockets of Baghdad - with the people expressing their hatred of all the former symbols of power. Close to the burning building, a US Marine division captured a small group believed to be Saddam's Fedayeen fighters. The PoW's were interrogated by the American soldiers as they sat handcuffed and blindfolded on the ground. Marines also discovered a cache of rifles, rocket propelled grenades and bazookas. ****************************************************************** US FRANKS: FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS STORY: ++US Franks - NEW US supreme Commander Franks on POWs LENGTH: 0:38 FIRST RUN: 1255 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369511 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ABC - Must Courtesy ABC "This Week" No Access North America / Internet 1.

What we don't know right now George is whether these are 6 of the youngsters we had categorised as prisoners, some of whom we've seen on television or whether these are from the category of troops that we had listed missing in action. So we are not sure yet, but we are very happy that we have these 6 Americans back with us now and they are in safe hands." STORYLINE: US Marines have found missing American soldiers on the road between Baghdad and Tikrit and they appear to be healthy, General Tommy Franks said on Sunday. Franks said he had been reluctant to release the information because he was unsure whether the group was among five listed as missing, or seven listed as POWs. Franks originally said six Americans had been found. Brigadier General Vincent Brooks at Central Command in Qatar later updated this to seven. Shortly after Brooks spoke to reporters, it was confirmed they were servicemen - and they were safe. ****************************************************************** JERUS PALM SUNDAY: CHRISTIANS GATHER ON MOUNT OF OLIVES TO CELEBRATE PALM SUNDAY STORY: ++Jerus Palm Sunday - NEW Christians gather on Mount of Olives to celebrate Palm Sunday LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369512 DATELINE: Jerusalem - 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: Mount of Olives near the Old City, East Jerusalem 1.

Despite the measures, officials reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, bringing the city-state's death toll to 12. Four new cases were reported on Sunday, for a total of 151. Two of the new deaths occurred at Singapore General Hospital, where at least 30 people have contracted SARS, the Health Ministry said. The third was a 90-year-old woman who died 30 March. Doctors originally put the cause of death as pneumonia, but now attribute it to SARS. Many victims around the world have been healthcare workers. Also on Sunday, the luxury cruise liner SuperStar Virgo returned to Singapore after being disinfected off the city-state's coast, said Lim Lily, a spokeswoman for Star Cruises, the ship's owners. Two crew members had been hospitalized for suspected SARS. Lim said 13 quarantined crew, who had come into contact with the two patients, remained isolated on board while the rest of the 1300 crew are staying in another area of the ship. Authorities said new tough measures are necessary to prevent the illness from spreading. Singapore has placed 608 people under home quarantine as of Sunday, and authorities said Web cams will be installed in their homes to ensure they don't leave. SARS has killed at least 133 people and sickened about 3-thousand in at least 20 countries. The illness has no known cure. Symptoms include shortness of breath, fever, coughing and body aches. ***************************************************************** US LYNCH STORY: ++US Lynch - NEW Medical briefing on Pte Lynch's state LENGTH: 2:31 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: Part No NAmerica/Internet TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL/ABC STORY NUMBER: 369519 DATELINE: 12/13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE, 13 APRIL 2003) POOL - APTN CLIENTS ONLY 1.

"We do not have her visiting other soldiers, or have other soldiers visit her because we are so early into her arrival. We want to make sure she's happy and that she's doing well," said Major General Kevin Kiley, a spokesman from the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre on Sunday. Kiley refused to discuss Lynch's injuries, treatment or any other aspect of her condition because he wanted to protect her privacy. The supply clerk, from Palestine, West Virginia, was captured on March 23 after her 507th Maintenance Company convoy was ambushed in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. She was rescued from an Iraqi hospital in the city April 1 by US commandos, reportedly after a tip from an Iraqi lawyer. ****************************************************************** 11:20:48 STILL WATBAN 11:20:56 STILL PHOT OF SADDAM'S BROTHER, REPORTS THAT HE MAY STILL BE ALIVE STORY: ++STILL Watban - NEW Reports that Saddam's half brother Watban has been captured LENGTH: 0:10 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Mute SOURCE: DoD STORY NUMBER: 369522 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1. Still of Watban al-Tikriti, Saddam Hussein's half-brother STORYLINE: A half-brother of Saddam Hussein has been captured in northern Iraq, a Kurdish television station reported Sunday. Watban al-Tikriti, a former interior minister and one of Saddam's advisers, was found northwest of Mosul, according to KTV, a station operated by the Kurdistan Democratic Party, one of the two main Kurdish factions. Watban was attempting to reach Syria, the station said. Mosul itself came under control of Kurdish fighters and US troops on Friday after Iraqi forces gave up without a fight. The station gave no other details. Kurdish officials reached by The Associated Press could not immediately confirm the report. In 1995, Al-Tikriti was wounded in a shooting by Saddam's son, Odai, during a quarrel over family matters. Saddam has other half-brothers, including Barzan al-Tikriti, a former Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations in Switzerland, and Sab'awi Ibrahim al-Hassan al-Tikriti. Their whereabouts is currently not known, though there are unconfirmed reports that Barzan al-Tikriti, was killed on Friday morning, when the US bombed his farm, in the region of Ramadi west of Baghdad. ****************************************************************** 11:21:11 BASRA WRAP 11:21:40 TRAFFIC AND IRAQI SOLDIER ON STREET SIDE 11:21:57 CARS AND TRUCKS DRIVING 11:22:06 UK SOLDIER STANDING 11:22:19 UK : THIS FIRST PATROL, WE NEED TO REVALIDATE THEM, MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC WILLACCEPT THEM 11:22:40 "WE HAVE THE LANGUAGE BARRIER 11:22:47 SOT (IRAQI): I AM NOW JUST TRYING TO CHECK THE STOLEN CAR 11:23:00 NEWSPAPERS IN BASRA 11:23:01 UK SOLDIER TOSSES NEWSPAPER 11:23:14 CHAOS 11:23:18 SOLDIER STANDING ON TOP OF TANK DISTRIBUTING NEWSPAPERS 11:23:34 UK SOLDIER: FIRST EXAMPLE OF FREE PRESS FOR IRAQ 11:23:49 THIS HAS BEEN WRITTNE BY THE LOCALS, WE'RE HERE TO HELP AND BUILD A FUTURE FOR THEIR COUNTRY 11:24:06 RUBBLE SHOTS, OF BUILDINGS STORY: +Basra Wrap - WRAP Iraqi policemen work with British troops, new newspaper distributed LENGTH: 3:01 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: UK MOD/APTN STORY NUMBER: 369518 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE - 13 APRIL 2003) APTN 1.

If they don't we'll have to look at another idea all together. (Q: Is there anything particularly difficult about what is going on today?) Well, we have the language barrier - as normal, and a lot of the police force will not be accepted by the locals because of what went on before we arrived."

Mid shot destroyed building in Basra 12. Close shot damage 13. Pan of damaged building STORYLINE: British troops and Iraqi policemen worked together in Basra on Sunday - the first stage in efforts to re-install a local police force in Iraq's second city. The southern city has been the scene of mass looting in recent days after the Iraqi regime was ousted. The policemen, the first patrol in the city since the collapse of Saddam Hussein's rule, took to the streets Sunday, albeit in a limited capacity, in a bid to restore civil order. The men helped British troops check cars and tried to establish which vehicles were stolen. One of the soldiers involved in the project said the aim was to see if the local population would accept the force. "If they don't" he said "we'll have to look at another idea all together." British military officials say that the looting is slowly coming under control in the port city, but that the help of the local community is needed to restore order. Britain's Ministry of Defence said Sunday in a statement it had sent two civilian police officials to Basra, to advise local officials and British troops on establishing order. The defence ministry said in the statement: "These officers will give advice to the British commanders in Basra on how to vet the local Iraqi police and then develop a close relationship with them." Also Sunday, British troops distributed a newspaper to local Iraqis on Sunday that military officials said was written "by Iraqis for Iraqis." Speaking in Basra, Major David Kemmisbetty from the Black Watch Regiment that is patrolling the city, said the newspaper was the first opportunity in many years for Iraqis to receive information not vetted by the Baath party. He said "(this is) the first time they've had a newspaper from outside that hasn't been directed by the Ba'ath party, and hasn't been Saddam's message." He added that most of the content had been written by local Iraqis, but with "a bit of input by the military explaining what we are up to." ****************************************************************** 11:27:56 RILEY FAMILY STATEMENT 11:28:05 REVEREND SOT STORY: ++US POW Family - WRAP Family of POW found safe interviewed LENGTH: 1:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No North America/Internet TYPE: English/ Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369517 DATELINE: Pennsauken, NJ, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

US troops outside building STORYLINE: U.S. forces were consolidating their control over Kirkuk on Sunday, as emergency water supplies began arriving in the vital northern oil city. Outside the city, on the road to Irbil, a US military checkpoint was monitoring traffic. And at the US military base - set up at the city's former airport - water tankers were starting to arrive. Despite getting fresh water however, some locals were clearly unhappy and disillusioned with the American forces. One local man emphasised the need for local municipal services to be re-established, lest the population become the victim of gangs. Meanwhile, in the city, US military chiefs were meeting with local authorities and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) personnel in the first steps towards setting up a new administration. Kurdish fighters who took over the city said they would yield to the Americans once enough of them arrived to secure law and order. US military personnel were unable to substantiate earlier rumours of a discovery of chemical missile warheads in the town. ****************************************************************** 11:30:20 STILLS OF POWS STORY: ++POW Stills - NEW Still images of recovered US POWs LENGTH: 0:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Canada TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: AP PHOTOS STORY NUMBER: 369527 DATELINE: Nr Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Riley, Miller, Hudson and Johnson were among five POWs shown on Iraqi television. The fifth was Spc. Edgar Hernandez, 21, of Mission, Texas. His family couldn't immediately be reached Sunday morning. One of the men found Sunday raised his fist in the air and smiled slightly as he strode from the helicopter at the southern Iraq airbase. Another limped, apparently with an injured right ankle. Some wore blue-and-white striped pajamas, another was in blue shorts. Marines at this base came forward to applaud and pat them on the back. Capt. David Romley said Marines marching north toward Tikrit were met by Iraqi soldiers north of Samarra who approached the 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Company, and the seven Americans were with them. ****************************************************************** 11:31:44 SOLDIERS IN KIRKUK 11:36:40 OMAN TV CHANGE TAPE ****************************************************************** 12:01:54 MIDDLE EAST BULLETIN 12:01:59 BAGHDAD WRAP: AFTERNOON'S EVENTS 12:02:09 SOLDIERS LEADING AWAY UNRULEY IRAQI 12:02:21 12:02:21 LARGE GROUP OD IRAQIS MARCHING THROUGH STREETS 12:02:33 IRAQIS RUSH INTO BUILDING, YOU CAN HEAR THE PRAYER CALLS 12:02:46 IRAQIS IN A MOSQUE WITH MAN CHANTING AND THEY REPEAT WHAT HE SAYS 12:03:09 GROUP OD IRAQIS WALKING DOWN STREET 12:03:17 GROUP OF IRAQI WOMEN CRYING AND PLEADING 12:03:26 DAE 12:04:20 IRAQIS TRYING TO FIX POWER LINES 12:04:29 IRAQIS CLEANING UP STREET, SHOVELLING DIRT AND DEBRIS IN THE CENTER OF THE ROAD ****************************************************************** 12:04:52 US FRANKS 2 12:04:58 FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS: HE COMMENTS ON THE POWS FOUND ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, FSG OF 7 POWS FOUND ****************************************************************** 12:08:20 STILLS OF US SOLDIERS (POWS) BEING RESCUED (MORE THAN ONE, VARIOUS) ****************************************************************** 12:08:53 STILL OF WATBAN: REPORTS THAT SADDAM'S HALF BROTHER HAS BEEN CAPTURE ***************************************************************** 12:09:10 BASRA WRAP ****************************************************************** 12:12:25 TIKRIT ROAD 12:12:39 IRAQI CHECKPOINT 12:12:42 TANK ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WTH SHEEP ON THE SIDE 12:12:47 BOYS CLIMBING ON TANK STORY: ++Tikrit Road - NEW Checkpoints and burnt out vehicles on the road between Irbil and Tikrit LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369524 DATELINE: Near Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Abandoned tank on the road STORYLINE: The Northern Iraqi road between Irbil and Saddam Hussein's last stronghold Tikrit, was quiet on Sunday despite reports that fighters loyal to Saddam Hussein's regime were still holding out Tikrit. Just forty kilometres (24 miles) out of Tikrit, the road appeared empty except for some abandoned military vehicles and local Iraqis walking along the road. Meanwhile, the US Commander in charge of coalition forces in Iraq said U.S. troops had pushed into Tikrit on Sunday - power center for Iraq's Sunni Muslim tribes that is believed to be one of the last strongholds of fighters loyal to President Saddam Hussein. Along the way, U.S. Marines rescued seven U.S. soldiers who had been captured by Iraqi forces earlier in the war. All were believed to be in good health. Franks said his troops had met no resistance as they entered Tikrit. He wouldn't say that the war was over, rather that "we have American forces in Tikrit right now." He did not indicate whether the forces were in the center or the outskirts of town, and did not say whether it had fallen. Tikrit is about 90 miles (145 kilometers) north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad. U.S. officials have played down the prospect of a major battle in Tikrit because of desertions and damage from repeated airstrikes. 12:14:32 END OF BULLETIN ***************************************************************** 12:15:20 SPORTS

Various of protestors waving arms and chanting STORYLINE: A large weapons cache has been uncovered close to the Palestine Hotel, where many western journalists have been staying in Baghdad. The cache was said to have ben pointed out to coalition troops by local people, and the building is understood to have been a regular house used by the Iraqi military. The building has since been looted by locals. It has now been seized by the US military who are expected to bulldoze it, or blow it up. The Iraqi capital remains tense with sporadic fire and heavy military presence around the Palestine Hotel. Meanwhile, the first Catholic mass has been celebrated in Baghdad since the city fell. Up to one hundred people attended the service at the Church of Virgin Mary, Karada, in central Baghdad. Also in central Baghdad, Iraqis met to start rebuilding their city and its infrastructure. A handful of US Marine civil affairs officers had summoned groups of Iraqi water, electrical and police civil servants to the Palestine Hotel, where US forces more or less have set up a base. The hotel was packed with civilians along with members from the old regime who were keen to restore some sense of order and government to Iraq. At an initial briefing, the civilians were told by one of the Iraqi organisers that all the other major cities in the country have been "liberated" and were now looking to Baghdad as to the way forward. But one participant found it difficult to work with those who had belonged to Saddam Hussein's government. The man shouted at police officers who were at the meeting saying "We don't need you...you are full of wrong-doing". Tensions were also high outside the hotel where a group of civilians had gathered. Despite the tensions, Iraqi civil servants at the meeting divided themselves into groups based on their specific skills as the first step in restoring structure to a city, and country, in chaos. Meanwhile, the Iraqi Trade Ministry was in flames as looting continued in pockets of Baghdad - with the people expressing their hatred of all the former symbols of power. Close to the burning building, a US Marine division captured a small group believed to be Saddam's Fedayeen fighters. The PoW's were interrogated by the American soldiers as they sat handcuffed and blindfolded on the ground. Marines also discovered a cache of rifles, rocket propelled grenades and bazookas. ****************************************************************** US FRANKS: FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS STORY: ++US Franks - NEW US supreme Commander Franks on POWs LENGTH: 0:38 FIRST RUN: 1255 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369511 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ABC - Must Courtesy ABC "This Week" No Access North America / Internet 1.

What we don't know right now George is whether these are 6 of the youngsters we had categorised as prisoners, some of whom we've seen on television or whether these are from the category of troops that we had listed missing in action. So we are not sure yet, but we are very happy that we have these 6 Americans back with us now and they are in safe hands." STORYLINE: US Marines have found missing American soldiers on the road between Baghdad and Tikrit and they appear to be healthy, General Tommy Franks said on Sunday. Franks said he had been reluctant to release the information because he was unsure whether the group was among five listed as missing, or seven listed as POWs. Franks originally said six Americans had been found. Brigadier General Vincent Brooks at Central Command in Qatar later updated this to seven. Shortly after Brooks spoke to reporters, it was confirmed they were servicemen - and they were safe. ****************************************************************** JERUS PALM SUNDAY: CHRISTIANS GATHER ON MOUNT OF OLIVES TO CELEBRATE PALM SUNDAY STORY: ++Jerus Palm Sunday - NEW Christians gather on Mount of Olives to celebrate Palm Sunday LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369512 DATELINE: Jerusalem - 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: Mount of Olives near the Old City, East Jerusalem 1.

Wide shot of Boat Quay STORYLINE: Seeking to contain a growing outbreak of a deadly flu-like illness, Singapore authorities slapped their first electronic wrist tag on a person who flouted a quarantine order, while police said on Sunday they were hunting for a fugitive woman with symptoms of the disease. Despite the measures, officials reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, bringing the city-state's death toll to 12. Four new cases were reported on Sunday, for a total of 151. Two of the new deaths occurred at Singapore General Hospital, where at least 30 people have contracted SARS, the Health Ministry said. The third was a 90-year-old woman who died 30 March. Doctors originally put the cause of death as pneumonia, but now attribute it to SARS. Many victims around the world have been healthcare workers. Also on Sunday, the luxury cruise liner SuperStar Virgo returned to Singapore after being disinfected off the city-state's coast, said Lim Lily, a spokeswoman for Star Cruises, the ship's owners. Two crew members had been hospitalized for suspected SARS. Lim said 13 quarantined crew, who had come into contact with the two patients, remained isolated on board while the rest of the 1300 crew are staying in another area of the ship. Authorities said new tough measures are necessary to prevent the illness from spreading.

Ambulance and entourage approach Walter Reed Army Medical Center and enter STORYLINE: Jessica Lynch, the American soldier rescued in a daring commando raid in Iraq, begun her recovery from her head-to-toe injuries at the Army's premier medical centre several miles (kilometres) from downtown Washington. The 19-year-old returned on Saturday aboard a C-17 military ambulance from Germany to Andrews Air Force Base near the capital, along with her immediate family and some four-dozen wounded soldiers. "We do not have her visiting other soldiers, or have other soldiers visit her because we are so early into her arrival. We want to make sure she's happy and that she's doing well," said Major General Kevin Kiley, a spokesman from the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre on Sunday. Kiley refused to discuss Lynch's injuries, treatment or any other aspect of her condition because he wanted to protect her privacy. The supply clerk, from Palestine, West Virginia, was captured on March 23 after her 507th Maintenance Company convoy was ambushed in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. She was rescued from an Iraqi hospital in the city April 1 by US commandos, reportedly after a tip from an Iraqi lawyer. ****************************************************************** 11:20:48 STILL WATBAN 11:20:56 STILL PHOT OF SADDAM'S BROTHER, REPORTS THAT HE MAY STILL BE ALIVE STORY: ++STILL Watban - NEW Reports that Saddam's half brother Watban has been captured LENGTH: 0:10 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Mute SOURCE: DoD STORY NUMBER: 369522 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1. Still of Watban al-Tikriti, Saddam Hussein's half-brother STORYLINE: A half-brother of Saddam Hussein has been captured in northern Iraq, a Kurdish television station reported Sunday. Watban al-Tikriti, a former interior minister and one of Saddam's advisers, was found northwest of Mosul, according to KTV, a station operated by the Kurdistan Democratic Party, one of the two main Kurdish factions. Watban was attempting to reach Syria, the station said. Mosul itself came under control of Kurdish fighters and US troops on Friday after Iraqi forces gave up without a fight. The station gave no other details. Kurdish officials reached by The Associated Press could not immediately confirm the report. In 1995, Al-Tikriti was wounded in a shooting by Saddam's son, Odai, during a quarrel over family matters. Saddam has other half-brothers, including Barzan al-Tikriti, a former Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations in Switzerland, and Sab'awi Ibrahim al-Hassan al-Tikriti. Their whereabouts is currently not known, though there are unconfirmed reports that Barzan al-Tikriti, was killed on Friday morning, when the US bombed his farm, in the region of Ramadi west of Baghdad. ****************************************************************** 11:21:11 BASRA WRAP 11:21:40 TRAFFIC AND IRAQI SOLDIER ON STREET SIDE 11:21:57 CARS AND TRUCKS DRIVING 11:22:06 UK SOLDIER STANDING 11:22:19 UK : THIS FIRST PATROL, WE NEED TO REVALIDATE THEM, MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC WILLACCEPT THEM 11:22:40 "WE HAVE THE LANGUAGE BARRIER 11:22:47 SOT (IRAQI): I AM NOW JUST TRYING TO CHECK THE STOLEN CAR 11:23:00 NEWSPAPERS IN BASRA 11:23:01 UK SOLDIER TOSSES NEWSPAPER 11:23:14 CHAOS 11:23:18 SOLDIER STANDING ON TOP OF TANK DISTRIBUTING NEWSPAPERS 11:23:34 UK SOLDIER: FIRST EXAMPLE OF FREE PRESS FOR IRAQ 11:23:49 THIS HAS BEEN WRITTNE BY THE LOCALS, WE'RE HERE TO HELP AND BUILD A FUTURE FOR THEIR COUNTRY 11:24:06 RUBBLE SHOTS, OF BUILDINGS STORY: +Basra Wrap - WRAP Iraqi policemen work with British troops, new newspaper distributed LENGTH: 3:01 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: UK MOD/APTN STORY NUMBER: 369518 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE - 13 APRIL 2003) APTN 1.

Mid shot destroyed building in Basra 12. Close shot damage 13. Pan of damaged building STORYLINE: British troops and Iraqi policemen worked together in Basra on Sunday - the first stage in efforts to re-install a local police force in Iraq's second city. The southern city has been the scene of mass looting in recent days after the Iraqi regime was ousted. The policemen, the first patrol in the city since the collapse of Saddam Hussein's rule, took to the streets Sunday, albeit in a limited capacity, in a bid to restore civil order. The men helped British troops check cars and tried to establish which vehicles were stolen. One of the soldiers involved in the project said the aim was to see if the local population would accept the force. "If they don't" he said "we'll have to look at another idea all together." British military officials say that the looting is slowly coming under control in the port city, but that the help of the local community is needed to restore order. Britain's Ministry of Defence said Sunday in a statement it had sent two civilian police officials to Basra, to advise local officials and British troops on establishing order. The defence ministry said in the statement: "These officers will give advice to the British commanders in Basra on how to vet the local Iraqi police and then develop a close relationship with them." Also Sunday, British troops distributed a newspaper to local Iraqis on Sunday that military officials said was written "by Iraqis for Iraqis." Speaking in Basra, Major David Kemmisbetty from the Black Watch Regiment that is patrolling the city, said the newspaper was the first opportunity in many years for Iraqis to receive information not vetted by the Baath party. He said "(this is) the first time they've had a newspaper from outside that hasn't been directed by the Ba'ath party, and hasn't been Saddam's message." He added that most of the content had been written by local Iraqis, but with "a bit of input by the military explaining what we are up to." ****************************************************************** 11:27:56 RILEY FAMILY STATEMENT 11:28:05 REVEREND SOT STORY: ++US POW Family - WRAP Family of POW found safe interviewed LENGTH: 1:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No North America/Internet TYPE: English/ Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369517 DATELINE: Pennsauken, NJ, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

US troops outside building STORYLINE: U.S. forces were consolidating their control over Kirkuk on Sunday, as emergency water supplies began arriving in the vital northern oil city. Outside the city, on the road to Irbil, a US military checkpoint was monitoring traffic. And at the US military base - set up at the city's former airport - water tankers were starting to arrive. Despite getting fresh water however, some locals were clearly unhappy and disillusioned with the American forces. One local man emphasised the need for local municipal services to be re-established, lest the population become the victim of gangs. Meanwhile, in the city, US military chiefs were meeting with local authorities and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) personnel in the first steps towards setting up a new administration. Kurdish fighters who took over the city said they would yield to the Americans once enough of them arrived to secure law and order. US military personnel were unable to substantiate earlier rumours of a discovery of chemical missile warheads in the town. ****************************************************************** 11:30:20 STILLS OF POWS STORY: ++POW Stills - NEW Still images of recovered US POWs LENGTH: 0:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Canada TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: AP PHOTOS STORY NUMBER: 369527 DATELINE: Nr Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Just forty kilometres (24 miles) out of Tikrit, the road appeared empty except for some abandoned military vehicles and local Iraqis walking along the road. Meanwhile, the US Commander in charge of coalition forces in Iraq said U.S. troops had pushed into Tikrit on Sunday - power center for Iraq's Sunni Muslim tribes that is believed to be one of the last strongholds of fighters loyal to President Saddam Hussein. Along the way, U.S. Marines rescued seven U.S. soldiers who had been captured by Iraqi forces earlier in the war. All were believed to be in good health. Franks said his troops had met no resistance as they entered Tikrit. He wouldn't say that the war was over, rather that "we have American forces in Tikrit right now." He did not indicate whether the forces were in the center or the outskirts of town, and did not say whether it had fallen. Tikrit is about 90 miles (145 kilometers) north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad. U.S. officials have played down the prospect of a major battle in Tikrit because of desertions and damage from repeated airstrikes. 12:14:32 END OF BULLETIN ***************************************************************** 12:15:20 SPORTS

Various of protestors waving arms and chanting STORYLINE: A large weapons cache has been uncovered close to the Palestine Hotel, where many western journalists have been staying in Baghdad. The cache was said to have ben pointed out to coalition troops by local people, and the building is understood to have been a regular house used by the Iraqi military. The building has since been looted by locals. It has now been seized by the US military who are expected to bulldoze it, or blow it up. The Iraqi capital remains tense with sporadic fire and heavy military presence around the Palestine Hotel. Meanwhile, the first Catholic mass has been celebrated in Baghdad since the city fell. Up to one hundred people attended the service at the Church of Virgin Mary, Karada, in central Baghdad. Also in central Baghdad, Iraqis met to start rebuilding their city and its infrastructure. A handful of US Marine civil affairs officers had summoned groups of Iraqi water, electrical and police civil servants to the Palestine Hotel, where US forces more or less have set up a base. The hotel was packed with civilians along with members from the old regime who were keen to restore some sense of order and government to Iraq. At an initial briefing, the civilians were told by one of the Iraqi organisers that all the other major cities in the country have been "liberated" and were now looking to Baghdad as to the way forward. But one participant found it difficult to work with those who had belonged to Saddam Hussein's government. The man shouted at police officers who were at the meeting saying "We don't need you...you are full of wrong-doing". Tensions were also high outside the hotel where a group of civilians had gathered. Despite the tensions, Iraqi civil servants at the meeting divided themselves into groups based on their specific skills as the first step in restoring structure to a city, and country, in chaos. Meanwhile, the Iraqi Trade Ministry was in flames as looting continued in pockets of Baghdad - with the people expressing their hatred of all the former symbols of power. Close to the burning building, a US Marine division captured a small group believed to be Saddam's Fedayeen fighters. The PoW's were interrogated by the American soldiers as they sat handcuffed and blindfolded on the ground. Marines also discovered a cache of rifles, rocket propelled grenades and bazookas. ****************************************************************** US FRANKS: FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS STORY: ++US Franks - NEW US supreme Commander Franks on POWs LENGTH: 0:38 FIRST RUN: 1255 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369511 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ABC - Must Courtesy ABC "This Week" No Access North America / Internet 1. SOUNDBITE: (English) General Tommy Franks, Centcom Commander: "Actually as I walked out 20 minutes ago to head over here, George, my staff came up and said, good news general, we have located and they appear to be reasonably healthy 6 of our youngsters who were missing. What we don't know right now George is whether these are 6 of the youngsters we had categorised as prisoners, some of whom we've seen on television or whether these are from the category of troops that we had listed missing in action. So we are not sure yet, but we are very happy that we have these 6 Americans back with us now and they are in safe hands." STORYLINE: US Marines have found missing American soldiers on the road between Baghdad and Tikrit and they appear to be healthy, General Tommy Franks said on Sunday. Franks said he had been reluctant to release the information because he was unsure whether the group was among five listed as missing, or seven listed as POWs. Franks originally said six Americans had been found. Brigadier General Vincent Brooks at Central Command in Qatar later updated this to seven. Shortly after Brooks spoke to reporters, it was confirmed they were servicemen - and they were safe. ****************************************************************** JERUS PALM SUNDAY: CHRISTIANS GATHER ON MOUNT OF OLIVES TO CELEBRATE PALM SUNDAY STORY: ++Jerus Palm Sunday - NEW Christians gather on Mount of Olives to celebrate Palm Sunday LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369512 DATELINE: Jerusalem - 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: Mount of Olives near the Old City, East Jerusalem 1.

Despite the measures, officials reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, bringing the city-state's death toll to 12. Four new cases were reported on Sunday, for a total of 151. Two of the new deaths occurred at Singapore General Hospital, where at least 30 people have contracted SARS, the Health Ministry said. The third was a 90-year-old woman who died 30 March. Doctors originally put the cause of death as pneumonia, but now attribute it to SARS. Many victims around the world have been healthcare workers. Also on Sunday, the luxury cruise liner SuperStar Virgo returned to Singapore after being disinfected off the city-state's coast, said Lim Lily, a spokeswoman for Star Cruises, the ship's owners. Two crew members had been hospitalized for suspected SARS. Lim said 13 quarantined crew, who had come into contact with the two patients, remained isolated on board while the rest of the 1300 crew are staying in another area of the ship. Authorities said new tough measures are necessary to prevent the illness from spreading. Singapore has placed 608 people under home quarantine as of Sunday, and authorities said Web cams will be installed in their homes to ensure they don't leave. SARS has killed at least 133 people and sickened about 3-thousand in at least 20 countries. The illness has no known cure. Symptoms include shortness of breath, fever, coughing and body aches. ***************************************************************** US LYNCH STORY: ++US Lynch - NEW Medical briefing on Pte Lynch's state LENGTH: 2:31 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: Part No NAmerica/Internet TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL/ABC STORY NUMBER: 369519 DATELINE: 12/13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE, 13 APRIL 2003) POOL - APTN CLIENTS ONLY 1.

The 19-year-old returned on Saturday aboard a C-17 military ambulance from Germany to Andrews Air Force Base near the capital, along with her immediate family and some four-dozen wounded soldiers. "We do not have her visiting other soldiers, or have other soldiers visit her because we are so early into her arrival. We want to make sure she's happy and that she's doing well," said Major General Kevin Kiley, a spokesman from the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre on Sunday. Kiley refused to discuss Lynch's injuries, treatment or any other aspect of her condition because he wanted to protect her privacy. The supply clerk, from Palestine, West Virginia, was captured on March 23 after her 507th Maintenance Company convoy was ambushed in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. She was rescued from an Iraqi hospital in the city April 1 by US commandos, reportedly after a tip from an Iraqi lawyer. ****************************************************************** 11:20:48 STILL WATBAN 11:20:56 STILL PHOT OF SADDAM'S BROTHER, REPORTS THAT HE MAY STILL BE ALIVE STORY: ++STILL Watban - NEW Reports that Saddam's half brother Watban has been captured LENGTH: 0:10 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Mute SOURCE: DoD STORY NUMBER: 369522 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1. Still of Watban al-Tikriti, Saddam Hussein's half-brother STORYLINE: A half-brother of Saddam Hussein has been captured in northern Iraq, a Kurdish television station reported Sunday. Watban al-Tikriti, a former interior minister and one of Saddam's advisers, was found northwest of Mosul, according to KTV, a station operated by the Kurdistan Democratic Party, one of the two main Kurdish factions. Watban was attempting to reach Syria, the station said. Mosul itself came under control of Kurdish fighters and US troops on Friday after Iraqi forces gave up without a fight. The station gave no other details. Kurdish officials reached by The Associated Press could not immediately confirm the report. In 1995, Al-Tikriti was wounded in a shooting by Saddam's son, Odai, during a quarrel over family matters. Saddam has other half-brothers, including Barzan al-Tikriti, a former Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations in Switzerland, and Sab'awi Ibrahim al-Hassan al-Tikriti. Their whereabouts is currently not known, though there are unconfirmed reports that Barzan al-Tikriti, was killed on Friday morning, when the US bombed his farm, in the region of Ramadi west of Baghdad. ****************************************************************** 11:21:11 BASRA WRAP 11:21:40 TRAFFIC AND IRAQI SOLDIER ON STREET SIDE 11:21:57 CARS AND TRUCKS DRIVING 11:22:06 UK SOLDIER STANDING 11:22:19 UK : THIS FIRST PATROL, WE NEED TO REVALIDATE THEM, MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC WILLACCEPT THEM 11:22:40 "WE HAVE THE LANGUAGE BARRIER 11:22:47 SOT (IRAQI): I AM NOW JUST TRYING TO CHECK THE STOLEN CAR 11:23:00 NEWSPAPERS IN BASRA 11:23:01 UK SOLDIER TOSSES NEWSPAPER 11:23:14 CHAOS 11:23:18 SOLDIER STANDING ON TOP OF TANK DISTRIBUTING NEWSPAPERS 11:23:34 UK SOLDIER: FIRST EXAMPLE OF FREE PRESS FOR IRAQ 11:23:49 THIS HAS BEEN WRITTNE BY THE LOCALS, WE'RE HERE TO HELP AND BUILD A FUTURE FOR THEIR COUNTRY 11:24:06 RUBBLE SHOTS, OF BUILDINGS STORY: +Basra Wrap - WRAP Iraqi policemen work with British troops, new newspaper distributed LENGTH: 3:01 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: UK MOD/APTN STORY NUMBER: 369518 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE - 13 APRIL 2003) APTN 1.

Mid shot destroyed building in Basra 12. Close shot damage 13. Pan of damaged building STORYLINE: British troops and Iraqi policemen worked together in Basra on Sunday - the first stage in efforts to re-install a local police force in Iraq's second city. The southern city has been the scene of mass looting in recent days after the Iraqi regime was ousted. The policemen, the first patrol in the city since the collapse of Saddam Hussein's rule, took to the streets Sunday, albeit in a limited capacity, in a bid to restore civil order. The men helped British troops check cars and tried to establish which vehicles were stolen. One of the soldiers involved in the project said the aim was to see if the local population would accept the force. "If they don't" he said "we'll have to look at another idea all together." British military officials say that the looting is slowly coming under control in the port city, but that the help of the local community is needed to restore order. Britain's Ministry of Defence said Sunday in a statement it had sent two civilian police officials to Basra, to advise local officials and British troops on establishing order. The defence ministry said in the statement: "These officers will give advice to the British commanders in Basra on how to vet the local Iraqi police and then develop a close relationship with them." Also Sunday, British troops distributed a newspaper to local Iraqis on Sunday that military officials said was written "by Iraqis for Iraqis." Speaking in Basra, Major David Kemmisbetty from the Black Watch Regiment that is patrolling the city, said the newspaper was the first opportunity in many years for Iraqis to receive information not vetted by the Baath party. He said "(this is) the first time they've had a newspaper from outside that hasn't been directed by the Ba'ath party, and hasn't been Saddam's message." He added that most of the content had been written by local Iraqis, but with "a bit of input by the military explaining what we are up to." ****************************************************************** 11:27:56 RILEY FAMILY STATEMENT 11:28:05 REVEREND SOT STORY: ++US POW Family - WRAP Family of POW found safe interviewed LENGTH: 1:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No North America/Internet TYPE: English/ Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369517 DATELINE: Pennsauken, NJ, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

US troops outside building STORYLINE: U.S. forces were consolidating their control over Kirkuk on Sunday, as emergency water supplies began arriving in the vital northern oil city. Outside the city, on the road to Irbil, a US military checkpoint was monitoring traffic. And at the US military base - set up at the city's former airport - water tankers were starting to arrive. Despite getting fresh water however, some locals were clearly unhappy and disillusioned with the American forces. One local man emphasised the need for local municipal services to be re-established, lest the population become the victim of gangs. Meanwhile, in the city, US military chiefs were meeting with local authorities and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) personnel in the first steps towards setting up a new administration. Kurdish fighters who took over the city said they would yield to the Americans once enough of them arrived to secure law and order. US military personnel were unable to substantiate earlier rumours of a discovery of chemical missile warheads in the town. ****************************************************************** 11:30:20 STILLS OF POWS STORY: ++POW Stills - NEW Still images of recovered US POWs LENGTH: 0:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Canada TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: AP PHOTOS STORY NUMBER: 369527 DATELINE: Nr Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Just forty kilometres (24 miles) out of Tikrit, the road appeared empty except for some abandoned military vehicles and local Iraqis walking along the road. Meanwhile, the US Commander in charge of coalition forces in Iraq said U.S. troops had pushed into Tikrit on Sunday - power center for Iraq's Sunni Muslim tribes that is believed to be one of the last strongholds of fighters loyal to President Saddam Hussein. Along the way, U.S. Marines rescued seven U.S. soldiers who had been captured by Iraqi forces earlier in the war. All were believed to be in good health. Franks said his troops had met no resistance as they entered Tikrit. He wouldn't say that the war was over, rather that "we have American forces in Tikrit right now." He did not indicate whether the forces were in the center or the outskirts of town, and did not say whether it had fallen. Tikrit is about 90 miles (145 kilometers) north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad.

Various of protestors waving arms and chanting STORYLINE: A large weapons cache has been uncovered close to the Palestine Hotel, where many western journalists have been staying in Baghdad. The cache was said to have ben pointed out to coalition troops by local people, and the building is understood to have been a regular house used by the Iraqi military. The building has since been looted by locals. It has now been seized by the US military who are expected to bulldoze it, or blow it up. The Iraqi capital remains tense with sporadic fire and heavy military presence around the Palestine Hotel. Meanwhile, the first Catholic mass has been celebrated in Baghdad since the city fell. Up to one hundred people attended the service at the Church of Virgin Mary, Karada, in central Baghdad. Also in central Baghdad, Iraqis met to start rebuilding their city and its infrastructure. A handful of US Marine civil affairs officers had summoned groups of Iraqi water, electrical and police civil servants to the Palestine Hotel, where US forces more or less have set up a base. The hotel was packed with civilians along with members from the old regime who were keen to restore some sense of order and government to Iraq. At an initial briefing, the civilians were told by one of the Iraqi organisers that all the other major cities in the country have been "liberated" and were now looking to Baghdad as to the way forward. But one participant found it difficult to work with those who had belonged to Saddam Hussein's government. The man shouted at police officers who were at the meeting saying "We don't need you...you are full of wrong-doing". Tensions were also high outside the hotel where a group of civilians had gathered. Despite the tensions, Iraqi civil servants at the meeting divided themselves into groups based on their specific skills as the first step in restoring structure to a city, and country, in chaos. Meanwhile, the Iraqi Trade Ministry was in flames as looting continued in pockets of Baghdad - with the people expressing their hatred of all the former symbols of power. Close to the burning building, a US Marine division captured a small group believed to be Saddam's Fedayeen fighters. The PoW's were interrogated by the American soldiers as they sat handcuffed and blindfolded on the ground. Marines also discovered a cache of rifles, rocket propelled grenades and bazookas. ****************************************************************** US FRANKS: FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS STORY: ++US Franks - NEW US supreme Commander Franks on POWs LENGTH: 0:38 FIRST RUN: 1255 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369511 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ABC - Must Courtesy ABC "This Week" No Access North America / Internet 1.

What we don't know right now George is whether these are 6 of the youngsters we had categorised as prisoners, some of whom we've seen on television or whether these are from the category of troops that we had listed missing in action. So we are not sure yet, but we are very happy that we have these 6 Americans back with us now and they are in safe hands." STORYLINE: US Marines have found missing American soldiers on the road between Baghdad and Tikrit and they appear to be healthy, General Tommy Franks said on Sunday. Franks said he had been reluctant to release the information because he was unsure whether the group was among five listed as missing, or seven listed as POWs. Franks originally said six Americans had been found. Brigadier General Vincent Brooks at Central Command in Qatar later updated this to seven. Shortly after Brooks spoke to reporters, it was confirmed they were servicemen - and they were safe. ****************************************************************** JERUS PALM SUNDAY: CHRISTIANS GATHER ON MOUNT OF OLIVES TO CELEBRATE PALM SUNDAY STORY: ++Jerus Palm Sunday - NEW Christians gather on Mount of Olives to celebrate Palm Sunday LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369512 DATELINE: Jerusalem - 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: Mount of Olives near the Old City, East Jerusalem 1.

Despite the measures, officials reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, bringing the city-state's death toll to 12. Four new cases were reported on Sunday, for a total of 151. Two of the new deaths occurred at Singapore General Hospital, where at least 30 people have contracted SARS, the Health Ministry said. The third was a 90-year-old woman who died 30 March. Doctors originally put the cause of death as pneumonia, but now attribute it to SARS. Many victims around the world have been healthcare workers. Also on Sunday, the luxury cruise liner SuperStar Virgo returned to Singapore after being disinfected off the city-state's coast, said Lim Lily, a spokeswoman for Star Cruises, the ship's owners. Two crew members had been hospitalized for suspected SARS. Lim said 13 quarantined crew, who had come into contact with the two patients, remained isolated on board while the rest of the 1300 crew are staying in another area of the ship. Authorities said new tough measures are necessary to prevent the illness from spreading. Singapore has placed 608 people under home quarantine as of Sunday, and authorities said Web cams will be installed in their homes to ensure they don't leave. SARS has killed at least 133 people and sickened about 3-thousand in at least 20 countries. The illness has no known cure. Symptoms include shortness of breath, fever, coughing and body aches. ***************************************************************** US LYNCH STORY: ++US Lynch - NEW Medical briefing on Pte Lynch's state LENGTH: 2:31 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: Part No NAmerica/Internet TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL/ABC STORY NUMBER: 369519 DATELINE: 12/13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE, 13 APRIL 2003) POOL - APTN CLIENTS ONLY 1.

The 19-year-old returned on Saturday aboard a C-17 military ambulance from Germany to Andrews Air Force Base near the capital, along with her immediate family and some four-dozen wounded soldiers. "We do not have her visiting other soldiers, or have other soldiers visit her because we are so early into her arrival. We want to make sure she's happy and that she's doing well," said Major General Kevin Kiley, a spokesman from the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre on Sunday. Kiley refused to discuss Lynch's injuries, treatment or any other aspect of her condition because he wanted to protect her privacy. The supply clerk, from Palestine, West Virginia, was captured on March 23 after her 507th Maintenance Company convoy was ambushed in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. She was rescued from an Iraqi hospital in the city April 1 by US commandos, reportedly after a tip from an Iraqi lawyer. ****************************************************************** 11:20:48 STILL WATBAN 11:20:56 STILL PHOT OF SADDAM'S BROTHER, REPORTS THAT HE MAY STILL BE ALIVE STORY: ++STILL Watban - NEW Reports that Saddam's half brother Watban has been captured LENGTH: 0:10 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Mute SOURCE: DoD STORY NUMBER: 369522 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1. Still of Watban al-Tikriti, Saddam Hussein's half-brother STORYLINE: A half-brother of Saddam Hussein has been captured in northern Iraq, a Kurdish television station reported Sunday. Watban al-Tikriti, a former interior minister and one of Saddam's advisers, was found northwest of Mosul, according to KTV, a station operated by the Kurdistan Democratic Party, one of the two main Kurdish factions. Watban was attempting to reach Syria, the station said. Mosul itself came under control of Kurdish fighters and US troops on Friday after Iraqi forces gave up without a fight. The station gave no other details. Kurdish officials reached by The Associated Press could not immediately confirm the report. In 1995, Al-Tikriti was wounded in a shooting by Saddam's son, Odai, during a quarrel over family matters. Saddam has other half-brothers, including Barzan al-Tikriti, a former Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations in Switzerland, and Sab'awi Ibrahim al-Hassan al-Tikriti. Their whereabouts is currently not known, though there are unconfirmed reports that Barzan al-Tikriti, was killed on Friday morning, when the US bombed his farm, in the region of Ramadi west of Baghdad. ****************************************************************** 11:21:11 BASRA WRAP 11:21:40 TRAFFIC AND IRAQI SOLDIER ON STREET SIDE 11:21:57 CARS AND TRUCKS DRIVING 11:22:06 UK SOLDIER STANDING 11:22:19 UK : THIS FIRST PATROL, WE NEED TO REVALIDATE THEM, MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC WILLACCEPT THEM 11:22:40 "WE HAVE THE LANGUAGE BARRIER 11:22:47 SOT (IRAQI): I AM NOW JUST TRYING TO CHECK THE STOLEN CAR 11:23:00 NEWSPAPERS IN BASRA 11:23:01 UK SOLDIER TOSSES NEWSPAPER 11:23:14 CHAOS 11:23:18 SOLDIER STANDING ON TOP OF TANK DISTRIBUTING NEWSPAPERS 11:23:34 UK SOLDIER: FIRST EXAMPLE OF FREE PRESS FOR IRAQ 11:23:49 THIS HAS BEEN WRITTNE BY THE LOCALS, WE'RE HERE TO HELP AND BUILD A FUTURE FOR THEIR COUNTRY 11:24:06 RUBBLE SHOTS, OF BUILDINGS STORY: +Basra Wrap - WRAP Iraqi policemen work with British troops, new newspaper distributed LENGTH: 3:01 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: UK MOD/APTN STORY NUMBER: 369518 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE - 13 APRIL 2003) APTN 1.

Mid shot destroyed building in Basra 12. Close shot damage 13. Pan of damaged building STORYLINE: British troops and Iraqi policemen worked together in Basra on Sunday - the first stage in efforts to re-install a local police force in Iraq's second city. The southern city has been the scene of mass looting in recent days after the Iraqi regime was ousted. The policemen, the first patrol in the city since the collapse of Saddam Hussein's rule, took to the streets Sunday, albeit in a limited capacity, in a bid to restore civil order. The men helped British troops check cars and tried to establish which vehicles were stolen. One of the soldiers involved in the project said the aim was to see if the local population would accept the force. "If they don't" he said "we'll have to look at another idea all together." British military officials say that the looting is slowly coming under control in the port city, but that the help of the local community is needed to restore order. Britain's Ministry of Defence said Sunday in a statement it had sent two civilian police officials to Basra, to advise local officials and British troops on establishing order. The defence ministry said in the statement: "These officers will give advice to the British commanders in Basra on how to vet the local Iraqi police and then develop a close relationship with them." Also Sunday, British troops distributed a newspaper to local Iraqis on Sunday that military officials said was written "by Iraqis for Iraqis." Speaking in Basra, Major David Kemmisbetty from the Black Watch Regiment that is patrolling the city, said the newspaper was the first opportunity in many years for Iraqis to receive information not vetted by the Baath party. He said "(this is) the first time they've had a newspaper from outside that hasn't been directed by the Ba'ath party, and hasn't been Saddam's message." He added that most of the content had been written by local Iraqis, but with "a bit of input by the military explaining what we are up to." ****************************************************************** 11:27:56 RILEY FAMILY STATEMENT 11:28:05 REVEREND SOT STORY: ++US POW Family - WRAP Family of POW found safe interviewed LENGTH: 1:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No North America/Internet TYPE: English/ Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369517 DATELINE: Pennsauken, NJ, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

US troops outside building STORYLINE: U.S. forces were consolidating their control over Kirkuk on Sunday, as emergency water supplies began arriving in the vital northern oil city. Outside the city, on the road to Irbil, a US military checkpoint was monitoring traffic. And at the US military base - set up at the city's former airport - water tankers were starting to arrive. Despite getting fresh water however, some locals were clearly unhappy and disillusioned with the American forces. One local man emphasised the need for local municipal services to be re-established, lest the population become the victim of gangs. Meanwhile, in the city, US military chiefs were meeting with local authorities and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) personnel in the first steps towards setting up a new administration. Kurdish fighters who took over the city said they would yield to the Americans once enough of them arrived to secure law and order. US military personnel were unable to substantiate earlier rumours of a discovery of chemical missile warheads in the town. ****************************************************************** 11:30:20 STILLS OF POWS STORY: ++POW Stills - NEW Still images of recovered US POWs LENGTH: 0:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Canada TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: AP PHOTOS STORY NUMBER: 369527 DATELINE: Nr Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

(AP Photo/Wally Santana) STORYLINE: Iraqi troops released seven captured U.S. soldiers -some wounded but in good condition - to Marines on Sunday, near where U.S. troops were entering Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit. Clad in an assortment of pajamas and shorts, the soldiers clambered out of helicopters to a delighted welcome at an air base in southern Iraq, hours after their release. The seven were taken by helicopter to this base near Kut and flown to a military airport south of Kuwait City. Ronald Young Sr. identified one of the Americans in shaky video shown by CNN as his son, Chief Warrant Officer Ronald D. Young Jr., who was listed as a POW after his Apache helicopter was forced down March 23. Also among the seven was Chief Warrant Officer David S. Williams, 30, who was in the Apache with Young. Relatives identified the others as four members of the 507th Ordnance Maintenance Company that was ambushed outside of the southern city of Nasiriyah on March 23: Army Spc. Shoshana Johnson, 30, Fort Bliss, Texas, Army Sgt. James Riley, 31, Pennsauken, New Jersey, Army Spc. Joseph Hudson, 23, Alamogordo, New Mexico, and Army Pfc. Patrick Miller, 23, Park City, Kansas. The six had been listed as POWs. The seventh soldier was not immediately identified, and the Pentagon was in the process of notifying families. Riley, Miller, Hudson and Johnson were among five POWs shown on Iraqi television. The fifth was Spc. Edgar Hernandez, 21, of Mission, Texas. His family couldn't immediately be reached Sunday morning. One of the men found Sunday raised his fist in the air and smiled slightly as he strode from the helicopter at the southern Iraq airbase. Another limped, apparently with an injured right ankle. Some wore blue-and-white striped pajamas, another was in blue shorts. Marines at this base came forward to applaud and pat them on the back. Capt. David Romley said Marines marching north toward Tikrit were met by Iraqi soldiers north of Samarra who approached the 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Company, and the seven Americans were with them. ****************************************************************** 11:31:44 SOLDIERS IN KIRKUK 11:36:40 OMAN TV CHANGE TAPE ****************************************************************** 12:01:54 MIDDLE EAST BULLETIN 12:01:59 BAGHDAD WRAP: AFTERNOON'S EVENTS 12:02:09 SOLDIERS LEADING AWAY UNRULEY IRAQI 12:02:21 12:02:21 LARGE GROUP OD IRAQIS MARCHING THROUGH STREETS 12:02:33 IRAQIS RUSH INTO BUILDING, YOU CAN HEAR THE PRAYER CALLS 12:02:46 IRAQIS IN A MOSQUE WITH MAN CHANTING AND THEY REPEAT WHAT HE SAYS 12:03:09 GROUP OD IRAQIS WALKING DOWN STREET 12:03:17 GROUP OF IRAQI WOMEN CRYING AND PLEADING 12:03:26 DAE 12:04:20 IRAQIS TRYING TO FIX POWER LINES 12:04:29 IRAQIS CLEANING UP STREET, SHOVELLING DIRT AND DEBRIS IN THE CENTER OF THE ROAD ****************************************************************** 12:04:52 US FRANKS 2 12:04:58 FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS: HE COMMENTS ON THE POWS FOUND ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, FSG OF 7 POWS FOUND ****************************************************************** 12:08:20 STILLS OF US SOLDIERS (POWS) BEING RESCUED (MORE THAN ONE, VARIOUS) ****************************************************************** 12:08:53 STILL OF WATBAN: REPORTS THAT SADDAM'S HALF BROTHER HAS BEEN CAPTURE ***************************************************************** 12:09:10 BASRA WRAP ****************************************************************** 12:12:25 TIKRIT ROAD 12:12:39 IRAQI CHECKPOINT 12:12:42 TANK ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WTH SHEEP ON THE SIDE 12:12:47 BOYS CLIMBING ON TANK STORY: ++Tikrit Road - NEW Checkpoints and burnt out vehicles on the road between Irbil and Tikrit LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369524 DATELINE: Near Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Abandoned tank on the road STORYLINE: The Northern Iraqi road between Irbil and Saddam Hussein's last stronghold Tikrit, was quiet on Sunday despite reports that fighters loyal to Saddam Hussein's regime were still holding out Tikrit. Just forty kilometres (24 miles) out of Tikrit, the road appeared empty except for some abandoned military vehicles and local Iraqis walking along the road. Meanwhile, the US Commander in charge of coalition forces in Iraq said U.S. troops had pushed into Tikrit on Sunday - power center for Iraq's Sunni Muslim tribes that is believed to be one of the last strongholds of fighters loyal to President Saddam Hussein. Along the way, U.S. Marines rescued seven U.S. soldiers who had been captured by Iraqi forces earlier in the war. All were believed to be in good health. Franks said his troops had met no resistance as they entered Tikrit. He wouldn't say that the war was over, rather that "we have American forces in Tikrit right now." He did not indicate whether the forces were in the center or the outskirts of town, and did not say whether it had fallen. Tikrit is about 90 miles (145 kilometers) north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad. U.S. officials have played down the prospect of a major battle in Tikrit because of desertions and damage from repeated airstrikes. 12:14:32 END OF BULLETIN ***************************************************************** 12:15:20 SPORTS

Various of protestors waving arms and chanting STORYLINE: A large weapons cache has been uncovered close to the Palestine Hotel, where many western journalists have been staying in Baghdad. The cache was said to have ben pointed out to coalition troops by local people, and the building is understood to have been a regular house used by the Iraqi military. The building has since been looted by locals. It has now been seized by the US military who are expected to bulldoze it, or blow it up. The Iraqi capital remains tense with sporadic fire and heavy military presence around the Palestine Hotel. Meanwhile, the first Catholic mass has been celebrated in Baghdad since the city fell. Up to one hundred people attended the service at the Church of Virgin Mary, Karada, in central Baghdad. Also in central Baghdad, Iraqis met to start rebuilding their city and its infrastructure. A handful of US Marine civil affairs officers had summoned groups of Iraqi water, electrical and police civil servants to the Palestine Hotel, where US forces more or less have set up a base. The hotel was packed with civilians along with members from the old regime who were keen to restore some sense of order and government to Iraq. At an initial briefing, the civilians were told by one of the Iraqi organisers that all the other major cities in the country have been "liberated" and were now looking to Baghdad as to the way forward. But one participant found it difficult to work with those who had belonged to Saddam Hussein's government. The man shouted at police officers who were at the meeting saying "We don't need you...you are full of wrong-doing". Tensions were also high outside the hotel where a group of civilians had gathered. Despite the tensions, Iraqi civil servants at the meeting divided themselves into groups based on their specific skills as the first step in restoring structure to a city, and country, in chaos. Meanwhile, the Iraqi Trade Ministry was in flames as looting continued in pockets of Baghdad - with the people expressing their hatred of all the former symbols of power. Close to the burning building, a US Marine division captured a small group believed to be Saddam's Fedayeen fighters. The PoW's were interrogated by the American soldiers as they sat handcuffed and blindfolded on the ground. Marines also discovered a cache of rifles, rocket propelled grenades and bazookas. ****************************************************************** US FRANKS: FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS STORY: ++US Franks - NEW US supreme Commander Franks on POWs LENGTH: 0:38 FIRST RUN: 1255 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369511 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ABC - Must Courtesy ABC "This Week" No Access North America / Internet 1.

What we don't know right now George is whether these are 6 of the youngsters we had categorised as prisoners, some of whom we've seen on television or whether these are from the category of troops that we had listed missing in action. So we are not sure yet, but we are very happy that we have these 6 Americans back with us now and they are in safe hands." STORYLINE: US Marines have found missing American soldiers on the road between Baghdad and Tikrit and they appear to be healthy, General Tommy Franks said on Sunday. Franks said he had been reluctant to release the information because he was unsure whether the group was among five listed as missing, or seven listed as POWs. Franks originally said six Americans had been found. Brigadier General Vincent Brooks at Central Command in Qatar later updated this to seven. Shortly after Brooks spoke to reporters, it was confirmed they were servicemen - and they were safe. ****************************************************************** JERUS PALM SUNDAY: CHRISTIANS GATHER ON MOUNT OF OLIVES TO CELEBRATE PALM SUNDAY STORY: ++Jerus Palm Sunday - NEW Christians gather on Mount of Olives to celebrate Palm Sunday LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369512 DATELINE: Jerusalem - 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: Mount of Olives near the Old City, East Jerusalem 1.

Despite the measures, officials reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, bringing the city-state's death toll to 12. Four new cases were reported on Sunday, for a total of 151. Two of the new deaths occurred at Singapore General Hospital, where at least 30 people have contracted SARS, the Health Ministry said. The third was a 90-year-old woman who died 30 March. Doctors originally put the cause of death as pneumonia, but now attribute it to SARS. Many victims around the world have been healthcare workers. Also on Sunday, the luxury cruise liner SuperStar Virgo returned to Singapore after being disinfected off the city-state's coast, said Lim Lily, a spokeswoman for Star Cruises, the ship's owners. Two crew members had been hospitalized for suspected SARS. Lim said 13 quarantined crew, who had come into contact with the two patients, remained isolated on board while the rest of the 1300 crew are staying in another area of the ship. Authorities said new tough measures are necessary to prevent the illness from spreading. Singapore has placed 608 people under home quarantine as of Sunday, and authorities said Web cams will be installed in their homes to ensure they don't leave. SARS has killed at least 133 people and sickened about 3-thousand in at least 20 countries. The illness has no known cure. Symptoms include shortness of breath, fever, coughing and body aches. ***************************************************************** US LYNCH STORY: ++US Lynch - NEW Medical briefing on Pte Lynch's state LENGTH: 2:31 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: Part No NAmerica/Internet TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL/ABC STORY NUMBER: 369519 DATELINE: 12/13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE, 13 APRIL 2003) POOL - APTN CLIENTS ONLY 1.

"We do not have her visiting other soldiers, or have other soldiers visit her because we are so early into her arrival. We want to make sure she's happy and that she's doing well," said Major General Kevin Kiley, a spokesman from the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre on Sunday. Kiley refused to discuss Lynch's injuries, treatment or any other aspect of her condition because he wanted to protect her privacy. The supply clerk, from Palestine, West Virginia, was captured on March 23 after her 507th Maintenance Company convoy was ambushed in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. She was rescued from an Iraqi hospital in the city April 1 by US commandos, reportedly after a tip from an Iraqi lawyer. ****************************************************************** 11:20:48 STILL WATBAN 11:20:56 STILL PHOT OF SADDAM'S BROTHER, REPORTS THAT HE MAY STILL BE ALIVE STORY: ++STILL Watban - NEW Reports that Saddam's half brother Watban has been captured LENGTH: 0:10 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Mute SOURCE: DoD STORY NUMBER: 369522 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1. Still of Watban al-Tikriti, Saddam Hussein's half-brother STORYLINE: A half-brother of Saddam Hussein has been captured in northern Iraq, a Kurdish television station reported Sunday. Watban al-Tikriti, a former interior minister and one of Saddam's advisers, was found northwest of Mosul, according to KTV, a station operated by the Kurdistan Democratic Party, one of the two main Kurdish factions. Watban was attempting to reach Syria, the station said. Mosul itself came under control of Kurdish fighters and US troops on Friday after Iraqi forces gave up without a fight. The station gave no other details. Kurdish officials reached by The Associated Press could not immediately confirm the report. In 1995, Al-Tikriti was wounded in a shooting by Saddam's son, Odai, during a quarrel over family matters. Saddam has other half-brothers, including Barzan al-Tikriti, a former Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations in Switzerland, and Sab'awi Ibrahim al-Hassan al-Tikriti. Their whereabouts is currently not known, though there are unconfirmed reports that Barzan al-Tikriti, was killed on Friday morning, when the US bombed his farm, in the region of Ramadi west of Baghdad. ****************************************************************** 11:21:11 BASRA WRAP 11:21:40 TRAFFIC AND IRAQI SOLDIER ON STREET SIDE 11:21:57 CARS AND TRUCKS DRIVING 11:22:06 UK SOLDIER STANDING 11:22:19 UK : THIS FIRST PATROL, WE NEED TO REVALIDATE THEM, MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC WILLACCEPT THEM 11:22:40 "WE HAVE THE LANGUAGE BARRIER 11:22:47 SOT (IRAQI): I AM NOW JUST TRYING TO CHECK THE STOLEN CAR 11:23:00 NEWSPAPERS IN BASRA 11:23:01 UK SOLDIER TOSSES NEWSPAPER 11:23:14 CHAOS 11:23:18 SOLDIER STANDING ON TOP OF TANK DISTRIBUTING NEWSPAPERS 11:23:34 UK SOLDIER: FIRST EXAMPLE OF FREE PRESS FOR IRAQ 11:23:49 THIS HAS BEEN WRITTNE BY THE LOCALS, WE'RE HERE TO HELP AND BUILD A FUTURE FOR THEIR COUNTRY 11:24:06 RUBBLE SHOTS, OF BUILDINGS STORY: +Basra Wrap - WRAP Iraqi policemen work with British troops, new newspaper distributed LENGTH: 3:01 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: UK MOD/APTN STORY NUMBER: 369518 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE - 13 APRIL 2003) APTN 1.

Mid shot destroyed building in Basra 12. Close shot damage 13. Pan of damaged building STORYLINE: British troops and Iraqi policemen worked together in Basra on Sunday - the first stage in efforts to re-install a local police force in Iraq's second city. The southern city has been the scene of mass looting in recent days after the Iraqi regime was ousted. The policemen, the first patrol in the city since the collapse of Saddam Hussein's rule, took to the streets Sunday, albeit in a limited capacity, in a bid to restore civil order. The men helped British troops check cars and tried to establish which vehicles were stolen. One of the soldiers involved in the project said the aim was to see if the local population would accept the force. "If they don't" he said "we'll have to look at another idea all together." British military officials say that the looting is slowly coming under control in the port city, but that the help of the local community is needed to restore order. Britain's Ministry of Defence said Sunday in a statement it had sent two civilian police officials to Basra, to advise local officials and British troops on establishing order. The defence ministry said in the statement: "These officers will give advice to the British commanders in Basra on how to vet the local Iraqi police and then develop a close relationship with them." Also Sunday, British troops distributed a newspaper to local Iraqis on Sunday that military officials said was written "by Iraqis for Iraqis." Speaking in Basra, Major David Kemmisbetty from the Black Watch Regiment that is patrolling the city, said the newspaper was the first opportunity in many years for Iraqis to receive information not vetted by the Baath party. He said "(this is) the first time they've had a newspaper from outside that hasn't been directed by the Ba'ath party, and hasn't been Saddam's message." He added that most of the content had been written by local Iraqis, but with "a bit of input by the military explaining what we are up to." ****************************************************************** 11:27:56 RILEY FAMILY STATEMENT 11:28:05 REVEREND SOT STORY: ++US POW Family - WRAP Family of POW found safe interviewed LENGTH: 1:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No North America/Internet TYPE: English/ Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369517 DATELINE: Pennsauken, NJ, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

US troops outside building STORYLINE: U.S. forces were consolidating their control over Kirkuk on Sunday, as emergency water supplies began arriving in the vital northern oil city. Outside the city, on the road to Irbil, a US military checkpoint was monitoring traffic. And at the US military base - set up at the city's former airport - water tankers were starting to arrive. Despite getting fresh water however, some locals were clearly unhappy and disillusioned with the American forces. One local man emphasised the need for local municipal services to be re-established, lest the population become the victim of gangs. Meanwhile, in the city, US military chiefs were meeting with local authorities and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) personnel in the first steps towards setting up a new administration. Kurdish fighters who took over the city said they would yield to the Americans once enough of them arrived to secure law and order. US military personnel were unable to substantiate earlier rumours of a discovery of chemical missile warheads in the town. ****************************************************************** 11:30:20 STILLS OF POWS STORY: ++POW Stills - NEW Still images of recovered US POWs LENGTH: 0:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Canada TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: AP PHOTOS STORY NUMBER: 369527 DATELINE: Nr Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

(AP Photo/Wally Santana) STORYLINE: Iraqi troops released seven captured U.S. soldiers -some wounded but in good condition - to Marines on Sunday, near where U.S. troops were entering Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit. Clad in an assortment of pajamas and shorts, the soldiers clambered out of helicopters to a delighted welcome at an air base in southern Iraq, hours after their release. The seven were taken by helicopter to this base near Kut and flown to a military airport south of Kuwait City. Ronald Young Sr. identified one of the Americans in shaky video shown by CNN as his son, Chief Warrant Officer Ronald D. Young Jr., who was listed as a POW after his Apache helicopter was forced down March 23. Also among the seven was Chief Warrant Officer David S. Williams, 30, who was in the Apache with Young. Relatives identified the others as four members of the 507th Ordnance Maintenance Company that was ambushed outside of the southern city of Nasiriyah on March 23: Army Spc. Shoshana Johnson, 30, Fort Bliss, Texas, Army Sgt. James Riley, 31, Pennsauken, New Jersey, Army Spc. Joseph Hudson, 23, Alamogordo, New Mexico, and Army Pfc. Patrick Miller, 23, Park City, Kansas. The six had been listed as POWs. The seventh soldier was not immediately identified, and the Pentagon was in the process of notifying families. Riley, Miller, Hudson and Johnson were among five POWs shown on Iraqi television. The fifth was Spc. Edgar Hernandez, 21, of Mission, Texas. His family couldn't immediately be reached Sunday morning. One of the men found Sunday raised his fist in the air and smiled slightly as he strode from the helicopter at the southern Iraq airbase. Another limped, apparently with an injured right ankle. Some wore blue-and-white striped pajamas, another was in blue shorts. Marines at this base came forward to applaud and pat them on the back. Capt. David Romley said Marines marching north toward Tikrit were met by Iraqi soldiers north of Samarra who approached the 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Company, and the seven Americans were with them. ****************************************************************** 11:31:44 SOLDIERS IN KIRKUK 11:36:40 OMAN TV CHANGE TAPE ****************************************************************** 12:01:54 MIDDLE EAST BULLETIN 12:01:59 BAGHDAD WRAP: AFTERNOON'S EVENTS 12:02:09 SOLDIERS LEADING AWAY UNRULEY IRAQI 12:02:21 12:02:21 LARGE GROUP OD IRAQIS MARCHING THROUGH STREETS 12:02:33 IRAQIS RUSH INTO BUILDING, YOU CAN HEAR THE PRAYER CALLS 12:02:46 IRAQIS IN A MOSQUE WITH MAN CHANTING AND THEY REPEAT WHAT HE SAYS 12:03:09 GROUP OD IRAQIS WALKING DOWN STREET 12:03:17 GROUP OF IRAQI WOMEN CRYING AND PLEADING 12:03:26 DAE 12:04:20 IRAQIS TRYING TO FIX POWER LINES 12:04:29 IRAQIS CLEANING UP STREET, SHOVELLING DIRT AND DEBRIS IN THE CENTER OF THE ROAD ****************************************************************** 12:04:52 US FRANKS 2 12:04:58 FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS: HE COMMENTS ON THE POWS FOUND ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, FSG OF 7 POWS FOUND ****************************************************************** 12:08:20 STILLS OF US SOLDIERS (POWS) BEING RESCUED (MORE THAN ONE, VARIOUS) ****************************************************************** 12:08:53 STILL OF WATBAN: REPORTS THAT SADDAM'S HALF BROTHER HAS BEEN CAPTURE ***************************************************************** 12:09:10 BASRA WRAP ****************************************************************** 12:12:25 TIKRIT ROAD 12:12:39 IRAQI CHECKPOINT 12:12:42 TANK ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WTH SHEEP ON THE SIDE 12:12:47 BOYS CLIMBING ON TANK STORY: ++Tikrit Road - NEW Checkpoints and burnt out vehicles on the road between Irbil and Tikrit LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369524 DATELINE: Near Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Abandoned tank on the road STORYLINE: The Northern Iraqi road between Irbil and Saddam Hussein's last stronghold Tikrit, was quiet on Sunday despite reports that fighters loyal to Saddam Hussein's regime were still holding out Tikrit. Just forty kilometres (24 miles) out of Tikrit, the road appeared empty except for some abandoned military vehicles and local Iraqis walking along the road. Meanwhile, the US Commander in charge of coalition forces in Iraq said U.S. troops had pushed into Tikrit on Sunday - power center for Iraq's Sunni Muslim tribes that is believed to be one of the last strongholds of fighters loyal to President Saddam Hussein. Along the way, U.S. Marines rescued seven U.S. soldiers who had been captured by Iraqi forces earlier in the war. All were believed to be in good health. Franks said his troops had met no resistance as they entered Tikrit. He wouldn't say that the war was over, rather that "we have American forces in Tikrit right now." He did not indicate whether the forces were in the center or the outskirts of town, and did not say whether it had fallen. Tikrit is about 90 miles (145 kilometers) north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad. U.S. officials have played down the prospect of a major battle in Tikrit because of desertions and damage from repeated airstrikes. 12:14:32 END OF BULLETIN ***************************************************************** 12:15:20 SPORTS

Various of protestors waving arms and chanting STORYLINE: A large weapons cache has been uncovered close to the Palestine Hotel, where many western journalists have been staying in Baghdad. The cache was said to have ben pointed out to coalition troops by local people, and the building is understood to have been a regular house used by the Iraqi military. The building has since been looted by locals. It has now been seized by the US military who are expected to bulldoze it, or blow it up. The Iraqi capital remains tense with sporadic fire and heavy military presence around the Palestine Hotel. Meanwhile, the first Catholic mass has been celebrated in Baghdad since the city fell. Up to one hundred people attended the service at the Church of Virgin Mary, Karada, in central Baghdad. Also in central Baghdad, Iraqis met to start rebuilding their city and its infrastructure. A handful of US Marine civil affairs officers had summoned groups of Iraqi water, electrical and police civil servants to the Palestine Hotel, where US forces more or less have set up a base. The hotel was packed with civilians along with members from the old regime who were keen to restore some sense of order and government to Iraq. At an initial briefing, the civilians were told by one of the Iraqi organisers that all the other major cities in the country have been "liberated" and were now looking to Baghdad as to the way forward. But one participant found it difficult to work with those who had belonged to Saddam Hussein's government. The man shouted at police officers who were at the meeting saying "We don't need you...you are full of wrong-doing". Tensions were also high outside the hotel where a group of civilians had gathered. Despite the tensions, Iraqi civil servants at the meeting divided themselves into groups based on their specific skills as the first step in restoring structure to a city, and country, in chaos. Meanwhile, the Iraqi Trade Ministry was in flames as looting continued in pockets of Baghdad - with the people expressing their hatred of all the former symbols of power. Close to the burning building, a US Marine division captured a small group believed to be Saddam's Fedayeen fighters. The PoW's were interrogated by the American soldiers as they sat handcuffed and blindfolded on the ground. Marines also discovered a cache of rifles, rocket propelled grenades and bazookas. ****************************************************************** US FRANKS: FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS STORY: ++US Franks - NEW US supreme Commander Franks on POWs LENGTH: 0:38 FIRST RUN: 1255 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369511 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ABC - Must Courtesy ABC "This Week" No Access North America / Internet 1.

What we don't know right now George is whether these are 6 of the youngsters we had categorised as prisoners, some of whom we've seen on television or whether these are from the category of troops that we had listed missing in action. So we are not sure yet, but we are very happy that we have these 6 Americans back with us now and they are in safe hands." STORYLINE: US Marines have found missing American soldiers on the road between Baghdad and Tikrit and they appear to be healthy, General Tommy Franks said on Sunday. Franks said he had been reluctant to release the information because he was unsure whether the group was among five listed as missing, or seven listed as POWs. Franks originally said six Americans had been found. Brigadier General Vincent Brooks at Central Command in Qatar later updated this to seven. Shortly after Brooks spoke to reporters, it was confirmed they were servicemen - and they were safe. ****************************************************************** JERUS PALM SUNDAY: CHRISTIANS GATHER ON MOUNT OF OLIVES TO CELEBRATE PALM SUNDAY STORY: ++Jerus Palm Sunday - NEW Christians gather on Mount of Olives to celebrate Palm Sunday LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369512 DATELINE: Jerusalem - 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: Mount of Olives near the Old City, East Jerusalem 1.

Despite the measures, officials reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, bringing the city-state's death toll to 12. Four new cases were reported on Sunday, for a total of 151. Two of the new deaths occurred at Singapore General Hospital, where at least 30 people have contracted SARS, the Health Ministry said. The third was a 90-year-old woman who died 30 March. Doctors originally put the cause of death as pneumonia, but now attribute it to SARS. Many victims around the world have been healthcare workers. Also on Sunday, the luxury cruise liner SuperStar Virgo returned to Singapore after being disinfected off the city-state's coast, said Lim Lily, a spokeswoman for Star Cruises, the ship's owners. Two crew members had been hospitalized for suspected SARS. Lim said 13 quarantined crew, who had come into contact with the two patients, remained isolated on board while the rest of the 1300 crew are staying in another area of the ship. Authorities said new tough measures are necessary to prevent the illness from spreading. Singapore has placed 608 people under home quarantine as of Sunday, and authorities said Web cams will be installed in their homes to ensure they don't leave. SARS has killed at least 133 people and sickened about 3-thousand in at least 20 countries. The illness has no known cure. Symptoms include shortness of breath, fever, coughing and body aches. ***************************************************************** US LYNCH STORY: ++US Lynch - NEW Medical briefing on Pte Lynch's state LENGTH: 2:31 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: Part No NAmerica/Internet TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL/ABC STORY NUMBER: 369519 DATELINE: 12/13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE, 13 APRIL 2003) POOL - APTN CLIENTS ONLY 1.

"We do not have her visiting other soldiers, or have other soldiers visit her because we are so early into her arrival. We want to make sure she's happy and that she's doing well," said Major General Kevin Kiley, a spokesman from the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre on Sunday. Kiley refused to discuss Lynch's injuries, treatment or any other aspect of her condition because he wanted to protect her privacy. The supply clerk, from Palestine, West Virginia, was captured on March 23 after her 507th Maintenance Company convoy was ambushed in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. She was rescued from an Iraqi hospital in the city April 1 by US commandos, reportedly after a tip from an Iraqi lawyer. ****************************************************************** 11:20:48 STILL WATBAN 11:20:56 STILL PHOT OF SADDAM'S BROTHER, REPORTS THAT HE MAY STILL BE ALIVE STORY: ++STILL Watban - NEW Reports that Saddam's half brother Watban has been captured LENGTH: 0:10 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Mute SOURCE: DoD STORY NUMBER: 369522 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1. Still of Watban al-Tikriti, Saddam Hussein's half-brother STORYLINE: A half-brother of Saddam Hussein has been captured in northern Iraq, a Kurdish television station reported Sunday. Watban al-Tikriti, a former interior minister and one of Saddam's advisers, was found northwest of Mosul, according to KTV, a station operated by the Kurdistan Democratic Party, one of the two main Kurdish factions. Watban was attempting to reach Syria, the station said. Mosul itself came under control of Kurdish fighters and US troops on Friday after Iraqi forces gave up without a fight. The station gave no other details. Kurdish officials reached by The Associated Press could not immediately confirm the report. In 1995, Al-Tikriti was wounded in a shooting by Saddam's son, Odai, during a quarrel over family matters. Saddam has other half-brothers, including Barzan al-Tikriti, a former Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations in Switzerland, and Sab'awi Ibrahim al-Hassan al-Tikriti. Their whereabouts is currently not known, though there are unconfirmed reports that Barzan al-Tikriti, was killed on Friday morning, when the US bombed his farm, in the region of Ramadi west of Baghdad. ****************************************************************** 11:21:11 BASRA WRAP 11:21:40 TRAFFIC AND IRAQI SOLDIER ON STREET SIDE 11:21:57 CARS AND TRUCKS DRIVING 11:22:06 UK SOLDIER STANDING 11:22:19 UK : THIS FIRST PATROL, WE NEED TO REVALIDATE THEM, MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC WILLACCEPT THEM 11:22:40 "WE HAVE THE LANGUAGE BARRIER 11:22:47 SOT (IRAQI): I AM NOW JUST TRYING TO CHECK THE STOLEN CAR 11:23:00 NEWSPAPERS IN BASRA 11:23:01 UK SOLDIER TOSSES NEWSPAPER 11:23:14 CHAOS 11:23:18 SOLDIER STANDING ON TOP OF TANK DISTRIBUTING NEWSPAPERS 11:23:34 UK SOLDIER: FIRST EXAMPLE OF FREE PRESS FOR IRAQ 11:23:49 THIS HAS BEEN WRITTNE BY THE LOCALS, WE'RE HERE TO HELP AND BUILD A FUTURE FOR THEIR COUNTRY 11:24:06 RUBBLE SHOTS, OF BUILDINGS STORY: +Basra Wrap - WRAP Iraqi policemen work with British troops, new newspaper distributed LENGTH: 3:01 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: UK MOD/APTN STORY NUMBER: 369518 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE - 13 APRIL 2003) APTN 1.

Mid shot destroyed building in Basra 12. Close shot damage 13. Pan of damaged building STORYLINE: British troops and Iraqi policemen worked together in Basra on Sunday - the first stage in efforts to re-install a local police force in Iraq's second city. The southern city has been the scene of mass looting in recent days after the Iraqi regime was ousted. The policemen, the first patrol in the city since the collapse of Saddam Hussein's rule, took to the streets Sunday, albeit in a limited capacity, in a bid to restore civil order. The men helped British troops check cars and tried to establish which vehicles were stolen. One of the soldiers involved in the project said the aim was to see if the local population would accept the force. "If they don't" he said "we'll have to look at another idea all together." British military officials say that the looting is slowly coming under control in the port city, but that the help of the local community is needed to restore order. Britain's Ministry of Defence said Sunday in a statement it had sent two civilian police officials to Basra, to advise local officials and British troops on establishing order. The defence ministry said in the statement: "These officers will give advice to the British commanders in Basra on how to vet the local Iraqi police and then develop a close relationship with them." Also Sunday, British troops distributed a newspaper to local Iraqis on Sunday that military officials said was written "by Iraqis for Iraqis." Speaking in Basra, Major David Kemmisbetty from the Black Watch Regiment that is patrolling the city, said the newspaper was the first opportunity in many years for Iraqis to receive information not vetted by the Baath party. He said "(this is) the first time they've had a newspaper from outside that hasn't been directed by the Ba'ath party, and hasn't been Saddam's message." He added that most of the content had been written by local Iraqis, but with "a bit of input by the military explaining what we are up to." ****************************************************************** 11:27:56 RILEY FAMILY STATEMENT 11:28:05 REVEREND SOT STORY: ++US POW Family - WRAP Family of POW found safe interviewed LENGTH: 1:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No North America/Internet TYPE: English/ Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369517 DATELINE: Pennsauken, NJ, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

US troops outside building STORYLINE: U.S. forces were consolidating their control over Kirkuk on Sunday, as emergency water supplies began arriving in the vital northern oil city. Outside the city, on the road to Irbil, a US military checkpoint was monitoring traffic. And at the US military base - set up at the city's former airport - water tankers were starting to arrive. Despite getting fresh water however, some locals were clearly unhappy and disillusioned with the American forces. One local man emphasised the need for local municipal services to be re-established, lest the population become the victim of gangs. Meanwhile, in the city, US military chiefs were meeting with local authorities and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) personnel in the first steps towards setting up a new administration. Kurdish fighters who took over the city said they would yield to the Americans once enough of them arrived to secure law and order. US military personnel were unable to substantiate earlier rumours of a discovery of chemical missile warheads in the town. ****************************************************************** 11:30:20 STILLS OF POWS STORY: ++POW Stills - NEW Still images of recovered US POWs LENGTH: 0:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Canada TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: AP PHOTOS STORY NUMBER: 369527 DATELINE: Nr Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Riley, Miller, Hudson and Johnson were among five POWs shown on Iraqi television. The fifth was Spc. Edgar Hernandez, 21, of Mission, Texas. His family couldn't immediately be reached Sunday morning. One of the men found Sunday raised his fist in the air and smiled slightly as he strode from the helicopter at the southern Iraq airbase. Another limped, apparently with an injured right ankle. Some wore blue-and-white striped pajamas, another was in blue shorts. Marines at this base came forward to applaud and pat them on the back. Capt. David Romley said Marines marching north toward Tikrit were met by Iraqi soldiers north of Samarra who approached the 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Company, and the seven Americans were with them. ****************************************************************** 11:31:44 SOLDIERS IN KIRKUK 11:36:40 OMAN TV CHANGE TAPE ****************************************************************** 12:01:54 MIDDLE EAST BULLETIN 12:01:59 BAGHDAD WRAP: AFTERNOON'S EVENTS 12:02:09 SOLDIERS LEADING AWAY UNRULEY IRAQI 12:02:21 12:02:21 LARGE GROUP OD IRAQIS MARCHING THROUGH STREETS 12:02:33 IRAQIS RUSH INTO BUILDING, YOU CAN HEAR THE PRAYER CALLS 12:02:46 IRAQIS IN A MOSQUE WITH MAN CHANTING AND THEY REPEAT WHAT HE SAYS 12:03:09 GROUP OD IRAQIS WALKING DOWN STREET 12:03:17 GROUP OF IRAQI WOMEN CRYING AND PLEADING 12:03:26 DAE 12:04:20 IRAQIS TRYING TO FIX POWER LINES 12:04:29 IRAQIS CLEANING UP STREET, SHOVELLING DIRT AND DEBRIS IN THE CENTER OF THE ROAD ****************************************************************** 12:04:52 US FRANKS 2 12:04:58 FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS: HE COMMENTS ON THE POWS FOUND ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, FSG OF 7 POWS FOUND ****************************************************************** 12:08:20 STILLS OF US SOLDIERS (POWS) BEING RESCUED (MORE THAN ONE, VARIOUS) ****************************************************************** 12:08:53 STILL OF WATBAN: REPORTS THAT SADDAM'S HALF BROTHER HAS BEEN CAPTURE ***************************************************************** 12:09:10 BASRA WRAP ****************************************************************** 12:12:25 TIKRIT ROAD 12:12:39 IRAQI CHECKPOINT 12:12:42 TANK ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WTH SHEEP ON THE SIDE 12:12:47 BOYS CLIMBING ON TANK STORY: ++Tikrit Road - NEW Checkpoints and burnt out vehicles on the road between Irbil and Tikrit LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369524 DATELINE: Near Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Abandoned tank on the road STORYLINE: The Northern Iraqi road between Irbil and Saddam Hussein's last stronghold Tikrit, was quiet on Sunday despite reports that fighters loyal to Saddam Hussein's regime were still holding out Tikrit. Just forty kilometres (24 miles) out of Tikrit, the road appeared empty except for some abandoned military vehicles and local Iraqis walking along the road. Meanwhile, the US Commander in charge of coalition forces in Iraq said U.S. troops had pushed into Tikrit on Sunday - power center for Iraq's Sunni Muslim tribes that is believed to be one of the last strongholds of fighters loyal to President Saddam Hussein. Along the way, U.S. Marines rescued seven U.S. soldiers who had been captured by Iraqi forces earlier in the war. All were believed to be in good health. Franks said his troops had met no resistance as they entered Tikrit. He wouldn't say that the war was over, rather that "we have American forces in Tikrit right now." He did not indicate whether the forces were in the center or the outskirts of town, and did not say whether it had fallen. Tikrit is about 90 miles (145 kilometers) north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad. U.S. officials have played down the prospect of a major battle in Tikrit because of desertions and damage from repeated airstrikes. 12:14:32 END OF BULLETIN ***************************************************************** 12:15:20 SPORTS

Various of protestors waving arms and chanting STORYLINE: A large weapons cache has been uncovered close to the Palestine Hotel, where many western journalists have been staying in Baghdad. The cache was said to have ben pointed out to coalition troops by local people, and the building is understood to have been a regular house used by the Iraqi military. The building has since been looted by locals. It has now been seized by the US military who are expected to bulldoze it, or blow it up. The Iraqi capital remains tense with sporadic fire and heavy military presence around the Palestine Hotel. Meanwhile, the first Catholic mass has been celebrated in Baghdad since the city fell. Up to one hundred people attended the service at the Church of Virgin Mary, Karada, in central Baghdad. Also in central Baghdad, Iraqis met to start rebuilding their city and its infrastructure. A handful of US Marine civil affairs officers had summoned groups of Iraqi water, electrical and police civil servants to the Palestine Hotel, where US forces more or less have set up a base. The hotel was packed with civilians along with members from the old regime who were keen to restore some sense of order and government to Iraq. At an initial briefing, the civilians were told by one of the Iraqi organisers that all the other major cities in the country have been "liberated" and were now looking to Baghdad as to the way forward. But one participant found it difficult to work with those who had belonged to Saddam Hussein's government. The man shouted at police officers who were at the meeting saying "We don't need you...you are full of wrong-doing". Tensions were also high outside the hotel where a group of civilians had gathered. Despite the tensions, Iraqi civil servants at the meeting divided themselves into groups based on their specific skills as the first step in restoring structure to a city, and country, in chaos. Meanwhile, the Iraqi Trade Ministry was in flames as looting continued in pockets of Baghdad - with the people expressing their hatred of all the former symbols of power. Close to the burning building, a US Marine division captured a small group believed to be Saddam's Fedayeen fighters. The PoW's were interrogated by the American soldiers as they sat handcuffed and blindfolded on the ground. Marines also discovered a cache of rifles, rocket propelled grenades and bazookas. ****************************************************************** US FRANKS: FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS STORY: ++US Franks - NEW US supreme Commander Franks on POWs LENGTH: 0:38 FIRST RUN: 1255 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369511 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ABC - Must Courtesy ABC "This Week" No Access North America / Internet 1.

What we don't know right now George is whether these are 6 of the youngsters we had categorised as prisoners, some of whom we've seen on television or whether these are from the category of troops that we had listed missing in action. So we are not sure yet, but we are very happy that we have these 6 Americans back with us now and they are in safe hands." STORYLINE: US Marines have found missing American soldiers on the road between Baghdad and Tikrit and they appear to be healthy, General Tommy Franks said on Sunday. Franks said he had been reluctant to release the information because he was unsure whether the group was among five listed as missing, or seven listed as POWs. Franks originally said six Americans had been found. Brigadier General Vincent Brooks at Central Command in Qatar later updated this to seven. Shortly after Brooks spoke to reporters, it was confirmed they were servicemen - and they were safe. ****************************************************************** JERUS PALM SUNDAY: CHRISTIANS GATHER ON MOUNT OF OLIVES TO CELEBRATE PALM SUNDAY STORY: ++Jerus Palm Sunday - NEW Christians gather on Mount of Olives to celebrate Palm Sunday LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369512 DATELINE: Jerusalem - 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: Mount of Olives near the Old City, East Jerusalem 1.

Despite the measures, officials reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, bringing the city-state's death toll to 12. Four new cases were reported on Sunday, for a total of 151. Two of the new deaths occurred at Singapore General Hospital, where at least 30 people have contracted SARS, the Health Ministry said. The third was a 90-year-old woman who died 30 March. Doctors originally put the cause of death as pneumonia, but now attribute it to SARS. Many victims around the world have been healthcare workers. Also on Sunday, the luxury cruise liner SuperStar Virgo returned to Singapore after being disinfected off the city-state's coast, said Lim Lily, a spokeswoman for Star Cruises, the ship's owners. Two crew members had been hospitalized for suspected SARS. Lim said 13 quarantined crew, who had come into contact with the two patients, remained isolated on board while the rest of the 1300 crew are staying in another area of the ship. Authorities said new tough measures are necessary to prevent the illness from spreading. Singapore has placed 608 people under home quarantine as of Sunday, and authorities said Web cams will be installed in their homes to ensure they don't leave. SARS has killed at least 133 people and sickened about 3-thousand in at least 20 countries. The illness has no known cure. Symptoms include shortness of breath, fever, coughing and body aches. ***************************************************************** US LYNCH STORY: ++US Lynch - NEW Medical briefing on Pte Lynch's state LENGTH: 2:31 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: Part No NAmerica/Internet TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL/ABC STORY NUMBER: 369519 DATELINE: 12/13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE, 13 APRIL 2003) POOL - APTN CLIENTS ONLY 1.

The 19-year-old returned on Saturday aboard a C-17 military ambulance from Germany to Andrews Air Force Base near the capital, along with her immediate family and some four-dozen wounded soldiers. "We do not have her visiting other soldiers, or have other soldiers visit her because we are so early into her arrival. We want to make sure she's happy and that she's doing well," said Major General Kevin Kiley, a spokesman from the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre on Sunday. Kiley refused to discuss Lynch's injuries, treatment or any other aspect of her condition because he wanted to protect her privacy. The supply clerk, from Palestine, West Virginia, was captured on March 23 after her 507th Maintenance Company convoy was ambushed in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. She was rescued from an Iraqi hospital in the city April 1 by US commandos, reportedly after a tip from an Iraqi lawyer. ****************************************************************** 11:20:48 STILL WATBAN 11:20:56 STILL PHOT OF SADDAM'S BROTHER, REPORTS THAT HE MAY STILL BE ALIVE STORY: ++STILL Watban - NEW Reports that Saddam's half brother Watban has been captured LENGTH: 0:10 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Mute SOURCE: DoD STORY NUMBER: 369522 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1. Still of Watban al-Tikriti, Saddam Hussein's half-brother STORYLINE: A half-brother of Saddam Hussein has been captured in northern Iraq, a Kurdish television station reported Sunday. Watban al-Tikriti, a former interior minister and one of Saddam's advisers, was found northwest of Mosul, according to KTV, a station operated by the Kurdistan Democratic Party, one of the two main Kurdish factions. Watban was attempting to reach Syria, the station said. Mosul itself came under control of Kurdish fighters and US troops on Friday after Iraqi forces gave up without a fight. The station gave no other details. Kurdish officials reached by The Associated Press could not immediately confirm the report. In 1995, Al-Tikriti was wounded in a shooting by Saddam's son, Odai, during a quarrel over family matters. Saddam has other half-brothers, including Barzan al-Tikriti, a former Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations in Switzerland, and Sab'awi Ibrahim al-Hassan al-Tikriti. Their whereabouts is currently not known, though there are unconfirmed reports that Barzan al-Tikriti, was killed on Friday morning, when the US bombed his farm, in the region of Ramadi west of Baghdad. ****************************************************************** 11:21:11 BASRA WRAP 11:21:40 TRAFFIC AND IRAQI SOLDIER ON STREET SIDE 11:21:57 CARS AND TRUCKS DRIVING 11:22:06 UK SOLDIER STANDING 11:22:19 UK : THIS FIRST PATROL, WE NEED TO REVALIDATE THEM, MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC WILLACCEPT THEM 11:22:40 "WE HAVE THE LANGUAGE BARRIER 11:22:47 SOT (IRAQI): I AM NOW JUST TRYING TO CHECK THE STOLEN CAR 11:23:01 UK SOLDIER TOSSES NEWPSAPTER 11:23:14 CHAOS 11:23:18 SOLDIER STANDING ON TOP OF TANK DISTRIBUTING NEWSPAPERS 11:23:34 UK SOLDIER: FIRST EXAMPLE OF FREE PRESS FOR IRAQ 11:23:49 THIS HAS BEEN WRITTNE BY THE LOCALS, WE'RE HERE TO HELP AND BUILD A FUTURE FOR THEIR COUNTRY 11:24:06 RUBBLE SHOTS, OF BUILDINGS STORY: +Basra Wrap - WRAP Iraqi policemen work with British troops, new newspaper distributed LENGTH: 3:01 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: UK MOD/APTN STORY NUMBER: 369518 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE - 13 APRIL 2003) APTN 1.

Mid shot destroyed building in Basra 12. Close shot damage 13. Pan of damaged building STORYLINE: British troops and Iraqi policemen worked together in Basra on Sunday - the first stage in efforts to re-install a local police force in Iraq's second city. The southern city has been the scene of mass looting in recent days after the Iraqi regime was ousted. The policemen, the first patrol in the city since the collapse of Saddam Hussein's rule, took to the streets Sunday, albeit in a limited capacity, in a bid to restore civil order. The men helped British troops check cars and tried to establish which vehicles were stolen. One of the soldiers involved in the project said the aim was to see if the local population would accept the force. "If they don't" he said "we'll have to look at another idea all together." British military officials say that the looting is slowly coming under control in the port city, but that the help of the local community is needed to restore order. Britain's Ministry of Defence said Sunday in a statement it had sent two civilian police officials to Basra, to advise local officials and British troops on establishing order. The defence ministry said in the statement: "These officers will give advice to the British commanders in Basra on how to vet the local Iraqi police and then develop a close relationship with them." Also Sunday, British troops distributed a newspaper to local Iraqis on Sunday that military officials said was written "by Iraqis for Iraqis." Speaking in Basra, Major David Kemmisbetty from the Black Watch Regiment that is patrolling the city, said the newspaper was the first opportunity in many years for Iraqis to receive information not vetted by the Baath party. He said "(this is) the first time they've had a newspaper from outside that hasn't been directed by the Ba'ath party, and hasn't been Saddam's message." He added that most of the content had been written by local Iraqis, but with "a bit of input by the military explaining what we are up to." ****************************************************************** 11:27:56 RILEY FAMILY STATEMENT 11:28:05 REVEREND SOT STORY: ++US POW Family - WRAP Family of POW found safe interviewed LENGTH: 1:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No North America/Internet TYPE: English/ Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369517 DATELINE: Pennsauken, NJ, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

US troops outside building STORYLINE: U.S. forces were consolidating their control over Kirkuk on Sunday, as emergency water supplies began arriving in the vital northern oil city. Outside the city, on the road to Irbil, a US military checkpoint was monitoring traffic. And at the US military base - set up at the city's former airport - water tankers were starting to arrive. Despite getting fresh water however, some locals were clearly unhappy and disillusioned with the American forces. One local man emphasised the need for local municipal services to be re-established, lest the population become the victim of gangs. Meanwhile, in the city, US military chiefs were meeting with local authorities and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) personnel in the first steps towards setting up a new administration. Kurdish fighters who took over the city said they would yield to the Americans once enough of them arrived to secure law and order. US military personnel were unable to substantiate earlier rumours of a discovery of chemical missile warheads in the town. ****************************************************************** 11:30:20 STILLS OF POWS STORY: ++POW Stills - NEW Still images of recovered US POWs LENGTH: 0:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Canada TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: AP PHOTOS STORY NUMBER: 369527 DATELINE: Nr Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

One of the men found Sunday raised his fist in the air and smiled slightly as he strode from the helicopter at the southern Iraq airbase. Another limped, apparently with an injured right ankle. Some wore blue-and-white striped pajamas, another was in blue shorts. Marines at this base came forward to applaud and pat them on the back. Capt.

Various of protestors waving arms and chanting STORYLINE: A large weapons cache has been uncovered close to the Palestine Hotel, where many western journalists have been staying in Baghdad. The cache was said to have ben pointed out to coalition troops by local people, and the building is understood to have been a regular house used by the Iraqi military. The building has since been looted by locals. It has now been seized by the US military who are expected to bulldoze it, or blow it up. The Iraqi capital remains tense with sporadic fire and heavy military presence around the Palestine Hotel. Meanwhile, the first Catholic mass has been celebrated in Baghdad since the city fell. Up to one hundred people attended the service at the Church of Virgin Mary, Karada, in central Baghdad. Also in central Baghdad, Iraqis met to start rebuilding their city and its infrastructure. A handful of US Marine civil affairs officers had summoned groups of Iraqi water, electrical and police civil servants to the Palestine Hotel, where US forces more or less have set up a base. The hotel was packed with civilians along with members from the old regime who were keen to restore some sense of order and government to Iraq. At an initial briefing, the civilians were told by one of the Iraqi organisers that all the other major cities in the country have been "liberated" and were now looking to Baghdad as to the way forward. But one participant found it difficult to work with those who had belonged to Saddam Hussein's government. The man shouted at police officers who were at the meeting saying "We don't need you...you are full of wrong-doing". Tensions were also high outside the hotel where a group of civilians had gathered. Despite the tensions, Iraqi civil servants at the meeting divided themselves into groups based on their specific skills as the first step in restoring structure to a city, and country, in chaos. Meanwhile, the Iraqi Trade Ministry was in flames as looting continued in pockets of Baghdad - with the people expressing their hatred of all the former symbols of power. Close to the burning building, a US Marine division captured a small group believed to be Saddam's Fedayeen fighters. The PoW's were interrogated by the American soldiers as they sat handcuffed and blindfolded on the ground. Marines also discovered a cache of rifles, rocket propelled grenades and bazookas. ****************************************************************** US FRANKS: FRANKS INTERVIEW ON FOX NEWS STORY: ++US Franks - NEW US supreme Commander Franks on POWs LENGTH: 0:38 FIRST RUN: 1255 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369511 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ABC - Must Courtesy ABC "This Week" No Access North America / Internet 1.

What we don't know right now George is whether these are 6 of the youngsters we had categorised as prisoners, some of whom we've seen on television or whether these are from the category of troops that we had listed missing in action.

STORYLINE: US Marines have found missing American soldiers on the road between Baghdad and Tikrit and they appear to be healthy, General Tommy Franks said on Sunday. Franks said he had been reluctant to release the information because he was unsure whether the group was among five listed as missing, or seven listed as POWs. Franks originally said six Americans had been found. Brigadier General Vincent Brooks at Central Command in Qatar later updated this to seven. Shortly after Brooks spoke to reporters, it was confirmed they were servicemen - and they were safe. ****************************************************************** JERUS PALM SUNDAY: CHRISTIANS GATHER ON MOUNT OF OLIVES TO CELEBRATE PALM SUNDAY STORY: ++Jerus Palm Sunday - NEW Christians gather on Mount of Olives to celebrate Palm Sunday LENGTH: 2:15 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 369512 DATELINE: Jerusalem - 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: Mount of Olives near the Old City, East Jerusalem 1.

Despite the measures, officials reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, bringing the city-state's death toll to 12. Four new cases were reported on Sunday, for a total of 151. Two of the new deaths occurred at Singapore General Hospital, where at least 30 people have contracted SARS, the Health Ministry said. The third was a 90-year-old woman who died 30 March. Doctors originally put the cause of death as pneumonia, but now attribute it to SARS. Many victims around the world have been healthcare workers. Also on Sunday, the luxury cruise liner SuperStar Virgo returned to Singapore after being disinfected off the city-state's coast, said Lim Lily, a spokeswoman for Star Cruises, the ship's owners. Two crew members had been hospitalized for suspected SARS. Lim said 13 quarantined crew, who had come into contact with the two patients, remained isolated on board while the rest of the 1300 crew are staying in another area of the ship. Authorities said new tough measures are necessary to prevent the illness from spreading. Singapore has placed 608 people under home quarantine as of Sunday, and authorities said Web cams will be installed in their homes to ensure they don't leave. SARS has killed at least 133 people and sickened about 3-thousand in at least 20 countries. The illness has no known cure. Symptoms include shortness of breath, fever, coughing and body aches. ***************************************************************** US LYNCH STORY: ++US Lynch - NEW Medical briefing on Pte Lynch's state LENGTH: 2:31 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: Part No NAmerica/Internet TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL/ABC STORY NUMBER: 369519 DATELINE: 12/13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE, 13 APRIL 2003) POOL - APTN CLIENTS ONLY 1.

The 19-year-old returned on Saturday aboard a C-17 military ambulance from Germany to Andrews Air Force Base near the capital, along with her immediate family and some four-dozen wounded soldiers. "We do not have her visiting other soldiers, or have other soldiers visit her because we are so early into her arrival. We want to make sure she's happy and that she's doing well," said Major General Kevin Kiley, a spokesman from the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre on Sunday. Kiley refused to discuss Lynch's injuries, treatment or any other aspect of her condition because he wanted to protect her privacy. The supply clerk, from Palestine, West Virginia, was captured on March 23 after her 507th Maintenance Company convoy was ambushed in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. She was rescued from an Iraqi hospital in the city April 1 by US commandos, reportedly after a tip from an Iraqi lawyer. ****************************************************************** 11:20:48 STILL WATBAN 11:20:56 STILL PHOT OF SADDAM'S BROTHER, REPORTS THAT HE MAY STILL BE ALIVE STORY: ++STILL Watban - NEW Reports that Saddam's half brother Watban has been captured LENGTH: 0:10 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Mute SOURCE: DoD STORY NUMBER: 369522 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1. Still of Watban al-Tikriti, Saddam Hussein's half-brother STORYLINE: A half-brother of Saddam Hussein has been captured in northern Iraq, a Kurdish television station reported Sunday. Watban al-Tikriti, a former interior minister and one of Saddam's advisers, was found northwest of Mosul, according to KTV, a station operated by the Kurdistan Democratic Party, one of the two main Kurdish factions. Watban was attempting to reach Syria, the station said. Mosul itself came under control of Kurdish fighters and US troops on Friday after Iraqi forces gave up without a fight. The station gave no other details. Kurdish officials reached by The Associated Press could not immediately confirm the report. In 1995, Al-Tikriti was wounded in a shooting by Saddam's son, Odai, during a quarrel over family matters. Saddam has other half-brothers, including Barzan al-Tikriti, a former Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations in Switzerland, and Sab'awi Ibrahim al-Hassan al-Tikriti. Their whereabouts is currently not known, though there are unconfirmed reports that Barzan al-Tikriti, was killed on Friday morning, when the US bombed his farm, in the region of Ramadi west of Baghdad. ****************************************************************** 11:21:11 BASRA WRAP 11:21:40 TRAFFIC AND IRAQI SOLDIER ON STREET SIDE 11:21:57 CARS AND TRUCKS DRIVING 11:22:06 UK SOLDIER STANDING 11:22:19 UK : THIS FIRST PATROL, WE NEED TO REVALIDATE THEM, MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC WILLACCEPT THEM 11:22:40 "WE HAVE THE LANGUAGE BARRIER 11:22:47 SOT (IRAQI): I AM NOW JUST TRYING TO CHECK THE STOLEN CAR 11:23:01 UK SOLDIER TOSSES NEWPSAPTER 11:23:14 CHAOS 11:23:18 SOLDIER STANDING ON TOP OF TANK DISTRIBUTING NEWSPAPERS 11:23:34 UK SOLDIER: FIRST EXAMPLE OF FREE PRESS FOR IRAQ 11:23:49 THIS HAS BEEN WRITTNE BY THE LOCALS, WE'RE HERE TO HELP AND BUILD A FUTURE FOR THEIR COUNTRY 11:24:06 RUBBLE SHOTS, OF BUILDINGS STORY: +Basra Wrap - WRAP Iraqi policemen work with British troops, new newspaper distributed LENGTH: 3:01 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: UK MOD/APTN STORY NUMBER: 369518 DATELINE: 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 1500 EUROPE LATE - 13 APRIL 2003) APTN 1.

Mid shot destroyed building in Basra 12. Close shot damage 13. Pan of damaged building STORYLINE: British troops and Iraqi policemen worked together in Basra on Sunday - the first stage in efforts to re-install a local police force in Iraq's second city. The southern city has been the scene of mass looting in recent days after the Iraqi regime was ousted. The policemen, the first patrol in the city since the collapse of Saddam Hussein's rule, took to the streets Sunday, albeit in a limited capacity, in a bid to restore civil order. The men helped British troops check cars and tried to establish which vehicles were stolen. One of the soldiers involved in the project said the aim was to see if the local population would accept the force. "If they don't" he said "we'll have to look at another idea all together." British military officials say that the looting is slowly coming under control in the port city, but that the help of the local community is needed to restore order. Britain's Ministry of Defence said Sunday in a statement it had sent two civilian police officials to Basra, to advise local officials and British troops on establishing order. The defence ministry said in the statement: "These officers will give advice to the British commanders in Basra on how to vet the local Iraqi police and then develop a close relationship with them." Also Sunday, British troops distributed a newspaper to local Iraqis on Sunday that military officials said was written "by Iraqis for Iraqis." Speaking in Basra, Major David Kemmisbetty from the Black Watch Regiment that is patrolling the city, said the newspaper was the first opportunity in many years for Iraqis to receive information not vetted by the Baath party. He said "(this is) the first time they've had a newspaper from outside that hasn't been directed by the Ba'ath party, and hasn't been Saddam's message." He added that most of the content had been written by local Iraqis, but with "a bit of input by the military explaining what we are up to." ****************************************************************** 11:27:56 RILEY FAMILY STATEMENT 11:28:05 REVEREND SOT STORY: ++US POW Family - WRAP Family of POW found safe interviewed LENGTH: 1:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No North America/Internet TYPE: English/ Nat SOURCE: ABC STORY NUMBER: 369517 DATELINE: Pennsauken, NJ, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

US troops outside building STORYLINE: U.S. forces were consolidating their control over Kirkuk on Sunday, as emergency water supplies began arriving in the vital northern oil city. Outside the city, on the road to Irbil, a US military checkpoint was monitoring traffic. And at the US military base - set up at the city's former airport - water tankers were starting to arrive. Despite getting fresh water however, some locals were clearly unhappy and disillusioned with the American forces. One local man emphasised the need for local municipal services to be re-established, lest the population become the victim of gangs. Meanwhile, in the city, US military chiefs were meeting with local authorities and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) personnel in the first steps towards setting up a new administration. Kurdish fighters who took over the city said they would yield to the Americans once enough of them arrived to secure law and order. US military personnel were unable to substantiate earlier rumours of a discovery of chemical missile warheads in the town. ****************************************************************** 11:30:20 STILLS OF POWS STORY: ++POW Stills - NEW Still images of recovered US POWs LENGTH: 0:42 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Canada TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: AP PHOTOS STORY NUMBER: 369527 DATELINE: Nr Tikrit, 13 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Media STORYLINE: An Iraqi Turkoman leader has called for restraint from emboldened Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq, who are currently acting as de facto rulers of oil-rich Kirkuk. Many Turkomans live in the area around Kirkuk and Mosul, where Kurdish fighters have arrived in large numbers since the cities fell. There have been concerns about ethnic conflicts in parts of northern Iraq, which is also home to Arab, Christian and Assyrian minorities. Muzaffer Arslan, who calls himself the "Establishing Chairman of the Iraqi National Turkoman Party" was on his way to northern Iraq from Turkey on Saturday. Speaking at a press conference, he said he was glad Saddam Hussein's regime had gone, but stressed that all ethnic minorities had suffered equally under his rule. A senior Kurdish leader said on Friday that Kurdish fighters would leave Kirkuk as soon as enough American troops arrive to take over, easing Turkish concerns of a separatist push. 14:49:01 #111 14:53:14 030412#085 Name: 030412#085 Title: UK DEMO APTN 1200G Type: APTN FEED In point: 13:25:24.12 Out point: 13:27:06.20 Duration: 00:01:42.06 Tape ID 6870 Dopesheet AP-APTN-1200: ?

Tens of thousands of protesters, many holding placards demanding "No occupation of Iraq," converged on Parliament Square, where they held two minutes' silence for the victims of war before marching on towards Hyde Park. In bright spring sunshine, marchers tossed bunches of yellow daffodils at the gates of Downing Street, home to British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Many said they doubted whether the collapse of Saddam Hussein's regime would bring an end to violence in Iraq. Imran Khan, a Pakistan-born international cricketer and politician, was among the well-known faces at the march. Organisers said dozens of buses had been booked from towns and cities across Britain to bring up to a quarter of a million people to the capital. Police said they expected 100-thousand marchers or fewer. 14:55:10 030412#094 Name: 030412#094 Title: UK HYDE PARK BBC EVNW Type: EVN FEED In point: 14:27:52.17 Out point: 14:29:24.01 Duration: 00:01:31.12 Tape ID 6871 Dopesheet HYDE PARK Date Shot: 12-APR-2003 Location: LONDON Country: UNITED KINGDOM Sound: NATURAL Language Source: GBBBC Restrictions: NO ACCESS UK/ITN/CH5 EURONEWS/APTN Dopesheet: Thousands of peace campaigners are marching through the streets of central London today in protest at the continuing war in Iraq. The Stop the War coalition believes public opposition to the conflict is still strong - in spite of scenes of jubilation this week as American tanks entered Iraqi cities. Organisers were hoping that up to 250,000 protesters would join the rally through the capital although there are estimates of only 10,000 taking part. The rally, which started at Victoria and Waterloo stations and takes two routes through the city, will converge on Parliament Square, where a two minutes' silence will be held "for the war dead". Marchers have been asked to bring flowers, cards, wreaths or whatever they feel appropriate to lay outside 10 Downing Street as they walk past. From Parliament Square demonstrators will then progress through Trafalgar Square, Haymarket and Piccadilly before attending a rally in Hyde Park. The march, called on Thursday by Stop the War with the Muslim Association of Great Britain and CND, is the third mass London rally to be held. 14:56:56 66 Lynch exits Ramsey 030412#066 Name: 030412#066 Title: GERMANY LYNCH APTN RTV EVF 1135G Type: FEED-LINES In point: 12:39:37.16 Out point: 12:42:27.22 Duration: 00:02:50.06 Tape ID 6869 Dopesheet LYNCH Date Shot: 12-APR-2003 Location: RAMSTEIN Country: GERMANY Sound: NATURAL Language: Source: GBRTV /GBAPTN Restrictions: Web Use Restricted: N Dopesheet: Injured U.S. Private Jessica Lynch was carried by stretcher onto a huge transport plane at Ramstein airbase in Germany on Saturday (April 12) for the flight back home to the U.S. Private Lynch was rescued by U.S. special forces in Iraq after her unit was ambushed in southern Iraq last month. She was one of about 50 U.S. troops injured in the US-led war against Iraq who was due to leave Ramstein milirary airbase in Germany on Saturday on the first leg of a trip to reunite them with their families in the United States. Lynch, 19, from Palestine, West Virginia, was one of 15 soldiers listed missing, captured or killed when a 507th Ordnance Maintenance Company convoy made a wrong turn and was attacked by Iraqi tanks and fighters. Five of the captives, but not Lynch, were shown on Iraqi television as well as the bloodied bodies of up to eight men, prompting President George W. Bush to warn Iraqis they should be punished as "war criminals" if they mistreated U.S. prisoners. Lynch was flown to a U.S. Ramstein air base on April 3 and received treatment at Landstuhl Medical Facility. Shotlist: SHOWS: RAMSTEIN AIRBASE, GERMANY (APRIL 12) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

Various wide shots of destruction in downtown Port-au-Prince STORYLINE: Eight days after Haiti's devastating earthquake, a new, powerful tremor shook the island nation on Wednesday, shaking buildings and terrifying survivors. Footage taken minutes after the magnitude-6.1 temblor, the largest aftershock yet to the January 12 quake, showed distressed and fearful survivors in shelters in an improvised tent city in the capital, Port-au-Prince. It was not immediately clear if it caused additional injuries or damage to weakened buildings. Wails of terror rose from frightened survivors as the earth shuddered at 6:03 a.m. (1103 GMT). US soldiers and tent city refugees alike raced for open ground, and clouds of dust rose in the capital. The US Geological Survey said the quake was centered about 35 miles (56 kilometres) northwest of Port-au-Prince and was 6.2 miles (9.9 kilometres) below the surface. Last week's magnitude-7 quake killed an estimated 200-thousand people in Haiti, left 250-thousand injured and made 1.5 million homeless, according to the European Union Commission.

We cleaned the area along with our brothers from Cancun and South Africa who helped us. Thank you all very much that we could bring out this woman who prayed and prayed and prayed and her huge faith made her voice heard." 5. Rescuers hugging each other STORYLINE Survivors were still being rescued in Port au Prince days after the 7.0 magnitude earthquake devastated the Caribbean nation and left tens of thousands dead. More than a week after the deadly quake killed an estimated 200-thousand, left 250-thousand injured and made 1.5 (m) million homeless, search-and-rescue teams were emerging from the ruins with improbable success stories. Sixty-nine-year-old Ena Zizi, a devoted Roman Catholic, was rescued on Tuesday. She said prayed constantly during her week under the rubble. Zizi had been at a church meeting at the residence of Haiti's Roman Catholic archbishop when the 12 January quake struck, trapping her in debris. She was rescued by a Mexican disaster team that was created in the wake of Mexico City's 1985 earthquake. A member of the rescue team said the group heard a noise coming from an area they were working on. They used sniffer dogs to find the location of the trapped woman. "We kept digging out the ground. We could hear the voice of the woman," one rescuer said. "Finally we saw a movement. Our brothers from South Africa helped us. We kept working until I could reach the woman and I felt she grabbed my hand and squeezed it strongly... and she called me 'son.'" Zizi later said that after the quake, she spoke back and forth with a vicar who also was trapped. But after a few days, he fell silent, and she spent the rest of the time praying and waiting. Doctors who examined Zizi on Tuesday said she was dehydrated and had a dislocated hip and a broken leg. Crews at the cathedral compound site on Tuesday managed to recover the body of the archbishop, Monsignor Joseph Serge Miot, who was killed when the quake struck. Authorities said close to 100 people had been pulled from wrecked buildings by international search-and-rescue teams. Efforts continued, with dozens of teams sifting through Port-au-Prince's crumbled homes and buildings for signs of life. But the good news was overshadowed by the frustrating fact that the world still can't get enough food and water to the hungry and thirsty. The World Food Programme said more than 250-thousand ready-to-eat food rations had been distributed in Haiti by Tuesday, reaching only a fraction of the three (m) million people thought to be in desperate need. The WFP said it needs to deliver 100 (m) million meals in the next 30 days. Based on pledges from the United States, Italy and Denmark, it has 16 (m) million in the pipeline. Meanwhile, a 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti on Wednesday morning, shaking buildings and sending screaming people running into the streets. The US Geological Survey said the new quake hit at 6:03 a.m. (1103 GMT) about 35 miles (56 kilometres) northwest of the capital of Port-au-Prince. Wails of terror rose Wednesday as frightened survivors of last week's quake poured out of unstable buildings. It was not immediately possible to ascertain what additional damage the new quake may have caused.

" (FIRST RUN 1530 NEWS UPDATE - 20 JANUARY 2010) 14. Various of Dutch military on streets 15. Pan to Dutch soldiers in military truck 16. Dutch soldiers getting off military truck STORYLINE The United States military operation in Haiti focused some of its efforts on providing security at the city's main hospitals on Wednesday, as the commander in charge of the operation said troops were providing security where it was needed, but were also distributing aid. The streets of the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince remained mostly calm on Wednesday morning after a magnitude 6.1 aftershock awoke frightened survivors of last week's earthquake at around 6 am (1100 GMT). The tremor did not appear to cause major new damage in a city already nearly flattened by the 12 January quake, but aid workers said it complicated rescue efforts and Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive said the government was sending teams to check on the situation in Petit-Goave, near the epicentre. The aftershock was the largest of more than 40 significant tremors. US troops could be seen trying to control crowds of residents waiting outside one of the city's main hospitals. Lieutenant General Ken Keen, Commander of the US Joint Task Force in Haiti, said he thought the aftershocks would have "a tremendous psychological impact" on the Haitian people, and expressed the fear that such tremors could result in further damage and death. Faced with criticism over the extent of US military presence on the ground in Haiti, Keen said US soldiers were not involved in street patrols but were instead focusing on "joint operations with the UN forces, particularly when it related to humanitarian assistance." "In some cases they are providing security for us as we do distribution of supplies," he said. He said US military efforts were also concentrated on the arrival of USNS Comfort hospital ship, which had begun treating its first patients. The nearly 900-foot floating hospital dropped anchor off the coast of Port-au-Prince on Wednesday morning, but the ship was close enough on Tuesday night to take aboard patients. Two severely injured quake victims were flown to the ship from an aircraft carrier. The patients are a 20-year-old man suffering from a spinal fracture and bleeding in the brain and a six-year-old boy with a fractured pelvis. The Comfort left Baltimore on Saturday, carrying about 550 medical staff and about 60 civilian mariners. A spokesperson for the US Southern Command said another 225 medical staff and 125 support staff will join them in Haiti. Keen said there were currently about 2-thousand US troops on the ground, and "another 9-thousand in the area on the ships supporting us." A contingent of Dutch soldiers was patrolling the streets of the capital on Wednesday. Aid efforts already held back by logistical problems and lack of coordination have been further hampered by a fear among relief officials that Haitians' desperation would boil over into violence. Occasionally, those fears have been borne out. Looters rampaged through part of downtown Port-au-Prince on Tuesday, just four blocks from where US troops landed at the presidential palace. Hundreds of looters fought over bolts of cloth and other goods with broken bottles and clubs. However, UN officials on Tuesday downplayed those reports saying there had been "no widespread looting" and describing the situation as understandable given the state thousands of Haitians find themselves in following the devastating quake. Keen empathised with the increasingly desperate Haitians, saying he felt their frustration. "I go out in the street into various locations everyday. I see their frustration and I understand their frustration that we can't do enough fast enough," he said. He pointed out though, that the damage was wide ranging in the Port-au-Prince area, "and we've got a long way to go to get to where we need to be". The World Food Programme said more than 250-thousand ready-to-eat food rations had been distributed in Haiti by Tuesday, reaching only a fraction of the 3 (m) million people thought to be in desperate need. The WFP said it needs to deliver 100 (m) million ready-to-eat rations in the next 30 days, but it only had 16 (m) million meals in the pipeline. Last week's magnitude-7 quake killed an estimated 200-thousand people in Haiti, left 250-thousand injured and made 1.5 (m) million homeless, according to a report from the European Commission. The US Geological Survey said Wednesday's aftershock was centered about 35 miles (60 kilometres) west-southwest of Port-au-Prince and 6.2 miles (9.9 kilometres) below the surface.

Various of USNS Comfort hospital ship off shore STORYLINE A French navy vessel, the Francis Garnier docked at the devastated port of Port-au-Prince on Wednesday following last week's magnitude 7.0 earthquake that reduced many of the city's buildings to rubble and left tens of thousands dead. France has pledged 28.6 (m) million US dollars in aid, plus more than 500 personnel, especially rescue workers, and 61 tons (55 metric tons) of supplies. The Francis Garnier, which has been in operation for three decades, arrived into the severely damaged port with much needed medical supplies for the thousands of Haitians that were injured in the earthquake eight days ago. Crew member Midshipman Francois Gabelleri said the ship had bought, amongst other supplies, "medicine, lots of medicine." Last week's magnitude-7 quake killed an estimated 200-thousand people in Haiti, left 250-thousand injured and made 1.5 (m) million homeless, according to the European Union. Haitians who survived last week's devastating earthquake are in dire need of basics such as food, water and medical care. Among accusations of uncoordinated and ineffective relief operations, desperate and hungry Haitians on Tuesday were piling into small boats to row out to dilapidated ferries carrying scant supplies of food and water. Governments have pledged nearly one (b) billion US dollars in aid, and thousands of tons of food and medical supplies have been shipped. But much remains trapped in warehouses, diverted to the neighbouring Dominican Republic, or left hovering in the air. On Tuesday, the US military, engineers, and divers were assessing the port of Port-au-Prince to determine if it can be used for large scale aid deliveries to the Haitian capital. There was concern that last week's earthquake may have damaged the structural integrity of the port and its docks. So far several major shipments of aid have been offloaded through the port, but that was without a clear picture of possible risks lurking beneath the water. For that reason the US coastguard has been limiting the number of ships that can dock and the amount of cargo that can by offloaded at one time. "There are severe restrictions on what's left of this pier and this is really the only servicing pier to the port of Port-au-Prince so its very important that we manage that traffic very slowly and methodically and keep the vessels off the pier until they've been cued to come aboard," said Captain John Little from the US Coast guard. Rescuers and locals were kept on edge on Wednesday when the most powerful aftershock yet struck Haiti, shaking more rubble from damaged buildings and sending screaming people running into the streets. The magnitude-6.1 temblor did not appear to cause major new damage in a city already nearly flattened by the 12 January quake, but aid workers said it complicated rescue efforts and Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive said the government was sending teams to check on the situation in Petit-Goave, near the epicentre.

Doctors covering Lagredelle's body STORYLINE: Richardson Lagredelle spent three days trapped under rubble after Haiti's magnitude-7 earthquake. He then spent just as long trying to reach a hospital, but finally arrived at the United Nations' clinic near the Port-au-Prince airport. After surviving for nearly seven days, Lagredelle was in a serious condition. Doctor Roberto Flores, from Boston Medical Center, explained the constant and difficult decision making him and his colleagues have to face. "I'm trying to make a decision whether we keep someone alive or not and some doctors here say 'well we just have to let them go.'" "I don't want to give up on him, because I think he's salvageable," he says of Lagredelle. At the hospital conditions are spartan. There are no hospital beds so doctors use Lagredelle's mother to prop him up and help him breathe. Supplies are in such short supply that Flores worries they don't have the equipment needed in order to keep Lagredelle alive. "Normally on a guy like that we would have to intubate but we cannot intubate here. We don't have the machine. This guy should be intubated and maybe we could save him but right now we can not do that," Flores said. This is life and death in a field hospital. Flores has already lost six patients he said he could have saved in any other hospital in the world. Still, he is hopeful for Lagredelle. "If I can get him to improve his breathing with fluid and bicarbonate, then we may be able to rush him into surgery and convince the surgeons to operate on him," said Flores. Doctors from all over the complex come running to help but Lagredelle's condition deteriorates. He takes his final breath. In one moment, a mother loses a son and a doctor loses another patient he doesn't think had to die. It has an effect on everyone at the hospital. "It's harder when they come in conscious and begging you to save them and there's nothing we can do," said Lisa Lucas, an aid worker. In minutes, another victim is being wheeled into the operating room and Flores readies for his next patient.

Tilt up of MSF doctor treating wound, second doctor watching STORYLINE The aid organisation Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) complained on Wednesday after another of its cargo planes carrying medical equipment had been turned away from Port-au-Prince airport in Haiti, despite assurances that it would be able to land. The plane was carrying 12 tons of medical equipment, including drugs, surgical supplies and two dialysis machines to help treat those injured in Haiti's devastating earthquake, MSF said. MSF, also known as Doctors Without Borders, said the cargo was part of the contents of an earlier plane carrying a total of 40 tons of supplies that was blocked from landing on Sunday morning. Since January 14, MSF has had six planes transporting medical and relief supplies and two carrying medical teams prevented from landing in Port-au-Prince and diverted to the Domican Republic, the organisation said. Marie-Noelle Rodrigue, head of emergency operations for MSF Paris, said on Wednesday that the supplies the planes were carrying were vital to improve medical treatment that was being carried out in "precarious conditions" in makeshift hospitals. "After six days, we could be, we should be at a point where we have much better hygiene conditions, and be able to take care of many more patients in a much better way, with all our medical equipment that we have in these planes," she said. Rodrigue said the planes had been authorised to land at the airport and that MSF had "all written permissions" but that they were still being turned away. "We don't even know what is wrong in what we do, so it's difficult to know exactly where to put the energy to improve that system for us," she said. The US military, which has taken charge of the airport, has been criticised by some for poorly prioritising flights. The US Air Force said it had raised the facility's daily capacity from 30 flights before the quake to 180 on Tuesday. US defence officials acknowledged bottlenecks, but said they have been working aggressively to eliminate them. MSF said it has given primary care to an estimated 3-thousand people in the capital and performed more than 400 surgeries. So far, international relief efforts have been unorganised, disjointed and insufficient to help a people in need of such basics as food, water and medical care. Governments have pledged nearly one (b) billion US dollars in aid, and thousands of tons of food and medical supplies have been shipped. But much remains trapped in warehouses, or diverted to the neighbouring Dominican Republic. Port-au-Prince's non-functioning seaport and many impassable roads complicate efforts to get aid to the people.

They control basically the state house, the governorship, legislature, they control everything and I think there's just a lot of backlash, people aren't that happy with anyone right now." 19. Close-up of "Boston Herald" newspaper on display with headline reading (English) "Yes He Did!" STORYLINE: Republican Scott Brown's win in the special election Tuesday for the Massachusetts Senate seat was a stunning and bitter setback for US President Barack Obama whose push for health care reform in the United States was nearing success in Congress. That is no longer assured because the Democrat's 60-seat super-majority - needed to overcome Republican stalling tactics - vanished with the drubbing of Democratic state Attorney General Martha Coakley. Brown declared on Wednesday that his election had sent a "very powerful message" that voters are weary of backroom deals and Washington business-as-usual. He portrayed his victory as less a referendum on Obama or the president's health care proposal and more of a sign that people are tired of Washington politics and dealmaking. Brown said his win sends "a very powerful message that business-as-usual is just not going to be the way we do it." Brown's victory gives Republicans 41 votes in the Senate, upending the Democrats' ability to stop filibusters and other delaying tactics. Counting the two Senate independents who usually vote with Democrats on procedural issues, the party will be able to muster only 59 votes, at most, one short of the number needed. Senator John McCain of Arizona, Obama's Republican presidential rival in 2008, likened Brown's win to the Revolutionary War's "shot heard round the world" in Concord, Massachusetts in April 1775. McCain said the message was clear: "No more business as usual in Washington. Stop this unsavory sausage-making process called health care reform." Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said he hoped the Democrats' ambitious remake of the health care system was dead. "We ought to stop and start over and go step by step to concentrate on fixing the problem which is the rising cost," he said. White House officials acknowledged that one of the lessons learned was the intensity of voter anger, but they said it wasn't so much with Obama as with Washington's failures in general and with the moribund economy. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Brown's win was "the nature of democratic politics in a very diverse nation." He said it was time to work in a bipartisan manner in the US Senate as "the American people demand that we work together as partners not partisans to improve their individual lives." Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday that Democrats would listen to voters' concerns but would still "move forward" on health care. Brown said he was heading to Washington on Thursday, although it was unclear how quickly he would be sworn in. Some Democrats said there should be no further action on health care reform until that happens. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid said Brown would be sworn in immediately. Both houses have passed a version of the health care reform programme, but are now in the process of negotiating major differences into a single bill that would need to pass in both the Senate and House before Obama could sign it into law. Brown, a state senator with a low profile, was initially seen as a sure loser, but he became the first Republican elected to the US Senate from Massachusetts since 1972. The state's registered Democrats outnumber Republicans by 3-to-1.

Police at scene STORYLINE: A lone gunman suspected of killing eight people before disappearing into dense Virginia woods and firing on a police helicopter surrendered peacefully at sunrise on Wednesday, ending an overnight hunt by dozens of law enforcement officers. Christopher Speight, 39, approached officers at the scene of the shootings at about 7:10 am (1210 GMT) and turned himself in without incident, according to a statement given by Sheriff O. Wilson Staples later on Wednesday. Staples said the rest of the day was going to be spent with identification, next of kin notification and the processing of the crime scene. Speight meanwhile, was being taken to an undisclosed location to be interviewed. Charges were pending. The drama that started around noon on Tuesday when a victim was spotted barely alive along the side of a narrow country road, paralysed the rural area, approximately 100 miles southwest of Richmond, as police swarmed forests trying to catch the suspect. Four nearby schools serving about 2-thousand students had planned to stay closed for the day before Speight surrendered. Police were still working to identify the victims and notify their families. It was not known whether Speight was armed when he surrendered. Authorities earlier said he had a high-powered rifle and Sheriff O. Wilson Staples said investigators believe Speight had weapons training based on the weapons found in his home, but he declined to elaborate. State police backed by other agencies spent the night enforcing a perimeter around a 2-mile stretch of woods and searching for Speight. The area was near the home where seven of the bodies were found, the eight victim, found barely alive on the side of the road, died on the way to the hospital. The house where most of the bodies were found is located on a gravel road, with woods and farm fields surrounding it. On Wednesday morning, police had the road blocked about 100 yards from the house. All the victims were adults and both men and women were killed, according to authorities. Speight was said to be acquainted with the victims, but details of the relationships weren't released. Police refused to speculate on a motive and would not say what type of weapon was used. Speight's last known address was along the block where the shootings occurred, but it was not known if the suspect was still living there. At one point the gunman fired at a state police helicopter, forcing it to land with a ruptured fuel tank, police said. No police were injured after one or more rounds struck the helicopter.

Wide of meeting STORYLINE US Middle East envoy George Mitchell said on Wednesday that Lebanon was a key player in the pursuit of regional peace. He was in Beirut on Tuesday and Wednesday at the start of a regional tour aimed at restarting Middle East peace talks. Mitchell's visit is part of a US effort to forge a wider peace that would end Israel's conflicts with the Palestinians, Syria and Lebanon and normalise Israel's ties with the rest of the Arab world. On Wednesday he met with the Lebanese President Michel Suleiman and the Speaker of Lebanese Parliament, Nabih Berri. He is expected to arrive in Syria later on Wednesday. In a statement, Mitchell said Lebanon would play a key role in the effort to build a lasting and comprehensive peace and stability in the Middle East. Mitchell is on a quest for a solution to the conflict, and said last week that Obama was committed to achieving peace in the Middle East. Talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority broke off a year ago, mainly over the issue of Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land. Israel committed to a full settlement freeze under a 2003 peace plan but did not meet that obligation. The Palestinians say there is no point negotiating while Israel expands the settlements. Past efforts by the Obama administration have failed to get Israel to halt construction of Jewish settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. Israel captured both from Jordan in the 1967 Mideast war. On Saturday, the leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah accused Arab leaders of caving in to US pressure to bring the Palestinians back to peace talks with Israel. Sheik Hassan Nasrallah made the statement after meeting on Friday with the political leader of the Palestinian militant group Hamas. A Hezbollah statement said Nasrallah and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal discussed "the ongoing political movement to resume negotiations under Israeli conditions." It added that this shows "the level of retreat and weakness in the official Arab position facing Israeli dangers and American pressure."

Mid of clock inside terminal, pull out to people waiting STORYLINE Part of Munich airport was closed for hours on Wednesday as officials searched for a man whose laptop had triggered an alert for possible explosives at a security checkpoint, police said. Federal police said they ordered part of the airport's Terminal 2 closed to look for the man following the incident at 3:30 p.m. (1430 GMT). An airport security instrument alerted officials to possible explosives as the man's laptop was being checked, police said. He then hastily left the scene carrying the computer into the terminal. The alert didn't necessarily mean that there were explosives inside federal police spokesman Albert Poerschke told the German news agency DAPD. Officials wanted to check the computer again, but the man left. Several hundred people were evacuated. Munich airport said the terminal reopened shortly after 6:40 p.m. (1740 GMT) and that more than 100 departures were affected by the scare. Air traffic was expected gradually to return to normal during the evening. It was unclear whether police found the man. There have been comparable security scares this month in the United States. A man who walked through a restricted door and set off an alarm that led to the evacuation of a terminal at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport has told police that he simply went the wrong way. At Newark airport in New Jersey, flights were grounded for hours and passengers were re-screened while officials searched for a man who had walked through the exit of a security checkpoint.

She was rescued on 1 April from a hospital in the southern Iraqi city by US commandos and airlifted to Germany. Also in Germany, a light and ready task force from the US Army's 1st Infantry Division boarded C-17s for rapid departure direct to northern Iraq on Thursday.

And there is a great deal they can do. I hope, for example, they will think about the very large debts that come from money that was leant to the dictator to buy weapons and build palaces and build instruments of repression. I think they ought to consider whether it might not be appropriate to forgive some or all of that debt so the new Iraqi government is not burdened with it.

But, we're not singling him out and I'm a little puzzled at press commentary that suggests we are singling him out.

Zoom in on entrance to office building with health workers standing by door 31. Health authorities standing outside building STORYLINE Hong Kong on Thursday said it would quarantine for up to 10 days anyone who resides with a confirmed SARS patient, in a measure to halt the spread of a disease that has killed 30 and sickened almost one thousand there. Health Secretary Dr. Yeoh Eng-kiong said Hong Kong was taking "one step further to help contain the spread of the disease". But he said the decision had been difficult because of a divergence of views on restricting people's freedoms. He added those under quarantine would not be allowed to go out except "under exceptional circumstances", saying only those who have had recent contact with patients would be affected. He estimated about 150 people from 70 to 80 households would be quarantined under the new order. Police were to make sure people did not violate the quarantine by making unannounced visits to their homes. Anyone who did not comply with the order would be removed to designated places for isolation and they could be fined or imprisoned. Hours earlier, Hong Kong reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS. The announcement came not long after residents of the Amoy Garden housing estate began returning from quarantine camps. The estate was thoroughly cleaned by authorities and those allowed to return were being monitored by doctors daily. Also in Hong Kong, residents of Telford housing estate were put on a-l-e-r-t, after an announcement by Hong Kong health officials, to potentially quarantine residents. Meanwhile, a friend of a dead American SARS patient has claimed that Chinese officials moved the man to Hong Kong to avoid the embarrassment of another foreigner's death in the mainland. An official in the border city of Shenzhen denied the allegation. The son of James Salisbury, the 52-year old American who died from SARS, is currently being treated in a Hong Kong hospital. And China on Thursday said its death toll from SARS had risen by two to 55 and said its total number of people sickened stood at one thousand and 290. A brief Health Ministry statement didn't say where or when the newly reported death occurred. But a breakdown of the death toll in the statement indicated that one was in the hard-hit southern province of Guangdong, where experts suspect Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome originated. And in Canada, public health officials on Wednesday ordered the closure of a Toronto-area school. They said that a student who had been exposed to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) - and was now showing symptoms of the disease - went to the school last week with a fever. It was the first time a school was closed in Canada due to the respiratory illness. ***************************************************************** 15:52:49 CONCORDE WRAP 15:52:54 REPLAY OF THE CONCORDE TAKING OFF ***************************************************************** 15:56:48 NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE 15:59:26 PEOPLE START CLAPPING 15:59:44 BELL RINGS 16:00:04 HITS GAVEL ******************************************************************

She was rescued on 1 April from a hospital in the southern Iraqi city by US commandos and airlifted to Germany. Also in Germany, a light and ready task force from the US Army's 1st Infantry Division boarded C-17s for rapid departure direct to northern Iraq on Thursday. The tanks and Humvees were loaded at Ramstein Airbase, and will be flown to Bashua airfield.

And there is a great deal they can do. I hope, for example, they will think about the very large debts that come from money that was leant to the dictator to buy weapons and build palaces and build instruments of repression. I think they ought to consider whether it might not be appropriate to forgive some or all of that debt so the new Iraqi government is not burdened with it. There is a great deal that they can do and I know we would welcome their help and I imagine the Iraqi people would imagine their help. This is a time to think about the future." 3.

We did not assemble them. It is interesting he can assemble a crowd of ten thousand. It is useful, as reported by our people on the ground, that he had a calming affect on Nasiriyah which is useful. But, we're not singling him out and I'm a little puzzled at press commentary that suggests we are singling him out.

Zoom in on entrance to office building with health workers standing by door 31. Health authorities standing outside building STORYLINE Hong Kong on Thursday said it would quarantine for up to 10 days anyone who resides with a confirmed SARS patient, in a measure to halt the spread of a disease that has killed 30 and sickened almost one thousand there. Health Secretary Dr. Yeoh Eng-kiong said Hong Kong was taking "one step further to help contain the spread of the disease". But he said the decision had been difficult because of a divergence of views on restricting people's freedoms. He added those under quarantine would not be allowed to go out except "under exceptional circumstances", saying only those who have had recent contact with patients would be affected. He estimated about 150 people from 70 to 80 households would be quarantined under the new order. Police were to make sure people did not violate the quarantine by making unannounced visits to their homes. Anyone who did not comply with the order would be removed to designated places for isolation and they could be fined or imprisoned. Hours earlier, Hong Kong reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS. The announcement came not long after residents of the Amoy Garden housing estate began returning from quarantine camps. The estate was thoroughly cleaned by authorities and those allowed to return were being monitored by doctors daily. Also in Hong Kong, residents of Telford housing estate were put on a-l-e-r-t, after an announcement by Hong Kong health officials, to potentially quarantine residents. Meanwhile, a friend of a dead American SARS patient has claimed that Chinese officials moved the man to Hong Kong to avoid the embarrassment of another foreigner's death in the mainland. An official in the border city of Shenzhen denied the allegation. The son of James Salisbury, the 52-year old American who died from SARS, is currently being treated in a Hong Kong hospital. And China on Thursday said its death toll from SARS had risen by two to 55 and said its total number of people sickened stood at one thousand and 290. A brief Health Ministry statement didn't say where or when the newly reported death occurred. But a breakdown of the death toll in the statement indicated that one was in the hard-hit southern province of Guangdong, where experts suspect Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome originated. And in Canada, public health officials on Wednesday ordered the closure of a Toronto-area school. They said that a student who had been exposed to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) - and was now showing symptoms of the disease - went to the school last week with a fever. It was the first time a school was closed in Canada due to the respiratory illness. ***************************************************************** 15:52:49 CONCORDE WRAP 15:52:54 REPLAY OF THE CONCORDE TAKING OFF ***************************************************************** 15:56:48 NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE 15:59:26 PEOPLE START CLAPPING 15:59:44 BELL RINGS 16:00:04 HITS GAVEL ******************************************************************

Lynch, and Army supply clerk from Palestine, West Virginia, was captured on 23 March after her 507th Maintenance Company convoy took a wrong near Nasiriyah and ran into an Iraqi ambush. She was rescued on 1 April from a hospital in the southern Iraqi city by US commandos and airlifted to Germany. Also in Germany, a light and ready task force from the US Army's 1st Infantry Division boarded C-17s for rapid departure direct to northern Iraq on Thursday. The tanks and Humvees were loaded at Ramstein Airbase, and will be flown to Bashua airfield. The tanks are for the First Infantry Division based in Wuerzburg, Germany. ****************************************************************** 14:56:16 REPLAY US WOLFOWITZ 1.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Paul Wolfowitz, US Deputy Defence Secretary: "I hope that they will think about how they can contribute to helping the Iraqi people get on their feet and build a better country. And there is a great deal they can do. I hope, for example, they will think about the very large debts that come from money that was leant to the dictator to buy weapons and build palaces and build instruments of repression. I think they ought to consider whether it might not be appropriate to forgive some or all of that debt so the new Iraqi government is not burdened with it. There is a great deal that they can do and I know we would welcome their help and I imagine the Iraqi people would imagine their help. This is a time to think about the future." 3. Wide view of audience 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Paul Wolfowitz, US Deputy Defence Secretary: "The Syrians are behaving badly, they need to be reminded of that and if they continue then we need to about what our policy is with respect to a country that harbours terrorists, or harbours war criminals or was in recent times shipping things to Iraq. It is very dubious behaviour and by calling attention to it we hope that that may be enough to get them to stop." 5. Wide view of Wolfowitz speaking 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Paul Wolfowitz, US Deputy Defence Secretary: "The concern we are raising about Syria is that in recent days the Syrians have been shipping killers into Iraq to try to kill Americans. We don't welcome that, we've stopped it when we have found those people. So, it is a problem, I think it is important that Iraq's neighbours not meddle with Iraq. And we've had clear discussions with Turkey, which has very legitimate concerns about northern Iraq and Turks have behaved themselves very well but we've had ... Secretary Powell was just on the phone this morning with Foreign Minister Gul to assure the foreign minister that there was no need for Turkish intervention." 7. Wide view of hearing 8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Paul Wolfowitz, US Deputy Defence Secretary: "I would note, it's an interesting picture, Chalabi spoke in Nasiriyah to a crowd of some ten thousand people. We did not assemble them. It is interesting he can assemble a crowd of ten thousand. It is useful, as reported by our people on the ground, that he had a calming affect on Nasiriyah which is useful. But, we're not singling him out and I'm a little puzzled at press commentary that suggests we are singling him out. He's one of many Iraqis that we hope will debate and discuss and give the Iraqi people, who are increasingly free to voice their voice, a chance to decide who they like and by what process they want to pick their leaders." 9.

Zoom in on entrance to office building with health workers standing by door 31. Health authorities standing outside building STORYLINE Hong Kong on Thursday said it would quarantine for up to 10 days anyone who resides with a confirmed SARS patient, in a measure to halt the spread of a disease that has killed 30 and sickened almost one thousand there. Health Secretary Dr. Yeoh Eng-kiong said Hong Kong was taking "one step further to help contain the spread of the disease". But he said the decision had been difficult because of a divergence of views on restricting people's freedoms. He added those under quarantine would not be allowed to go out except "under exceptional circumstances", saying only those who have had recent contact with patients would be affected. He estimated about 150 people from 70 to 80 households would be quarantined under the new order. Police were to make sure people did not violate the quarantine by making unannounced visits to their homes. Anyone who did not comply with the order would be removed to designated places for isolation and they could be fined or imprisoned. Hours earlier, Hong Kong reported three more deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS. The announcement came not long after residents of the Amoy Garden housing estate began returning from quarantine camps. The estate was thoroughly cleaned by authorities and those allowed to return were being monitored by doctors daily. Also in Hong Kong, residents of Telford housing estate were put on a-l-e-r-t, after an announcement by Hong Kong health officials, to potentially quarantine residents. Meanwhile, a friend of a dead American SARS patient has claimed that Chinese officials moved the man to Hong Kong to avoid the embarrassment of another foreigner's death in the mainland. An official in the border city of Shenzhen denied the allegation. The son of James Salisbury, the 52-year old American who died from SARS, is currently being treated in a Hong Kong hospital. And China on Thursday said its death toll from SARS had risen by two to 55 and said its total number of people sickened stood at one thousand and 290. A brief Health Ministry statement didn't say where or when the newly reported death occurred. But a breakdown of the death toll in the statement indicated that one was in the hard-hit southern province of Guangdong, where experts suspect Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome originated. And in Canada, public health officials on Wednesday ordered the closure of a Toronto-area school. They said that a student who had been exposed to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) - and was now showing symptoms of the disease - went to the school last week with a fever. It was the first time a school was closed in Canada due to the respiratory illness. ***************************************************************** 15:52:49 CONCORDE WRAP 15:52:54 REPLAY OF THE CONCORDE TAKING OFF ***************************************************************** 15:56:48 NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE 15:59:26 PEOPLE START CLAPPING 15:59:44 BELL RINGS 16:00:04 HITS GAVEL ******************************************************************
