London bomber sends warning in video
LONDON -- One of the suicide bombers who struck London's transit system a year ago warned in a video broadcast Thursday that the attacks were only the beginning of a campaign of terror. The video was broadcast by Al-Jazeera TV on the eve of the first anniversary of the July 7, 2005, bombings that killed 52 people and the four bombers. It showed Shehzad Tanweer, wearing a red-and-white checkered keffiyeh, pointing his finger at the camera. The 22-year-old suicide attacker killed seven people and himself aboard a London Underground train.
WTC site owner takes charge of memorial
NEW YORK -- The government agency that owns the World Trade Center site is taking over construction of the Sept. 11 memorial, following recommendations that the move could trim spiraling costs. But the chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey also said the agency could back out of the agreement if the price of the project exceeds the latest estimate of $510 million. "We're going to try and reconcile the numbers. No one has agreed to build it for a number greater" than $510 million, chairman Anthony Coscia said. The boards of the Port Authority and the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation voted Thursday to have the Port Authority build the memorial instead of the not-for-profit memorial foundation.

Flight director Tony Ceccacci called the rendezvous perfect. The two men aboard the space station snapped 350 photos of the approaching shuttle to document any damage to the thermal skin, Ceccacci said.
