1) World news roundup

* Five men were arrested in Buffalo NY on Saturday on suspicions of
connections to al Qaeda. A sixth man, also from Buffalo, was arrested in
the United Arab Emirate of Bahrain today. FBI officials believe that the
men had trained in one of Osama bin Laden’s camps in the spring of 2001.
All of the men are American-born and of Yemeni descent. Officials also
suspect that they may have had ties to similar cells in other states.

* Saudi Arabian authorities indicated that if the U.N. backs the war
against Iraq, the U.S. will be allowed to use bases on Saudi soil. Saudi
Arabia played a big part in the first war on Iraq, back in 1991. However,
for months the country has spoken out against a U.S. attack, and appeared
to change its position after President Bush’s speech at the U.N. on
Thursday. It is the hope of Bush officials that other Arab nations will
follow Saudi Arabia’s example.

* U.S. News and World Report published its annual rankings on colleges and
universities on Friday. Once again Princeton University ranked first, with
Harvard and Yale tied for second. In the liberal arts college category,
Amherst College placed first, with Swarthmore and Williams tied for second
. Though the rankings have come under attack from many college
administrators and education experts, the magazine defends the system as
the best way to quantify the college experience even if it cannot take the
place of actually visiting the campus.
