1) World news roundup

* The U.N. and Iraq have come to an agreement regarding the entrance of
weapons inspectors back into the country. Under the plan, Iraq will allow
the inspectors to have access to most, though not all, of the country
starting in mid-October. However, Secretary of State Colin Powell declared
that the weapons inspectors should not be let back in until the Security
Council of the U.N. passes a new resolution. Such a resolution would spell
out threatening consequences for Iraq if they do not comply with the
inspectors fully.

* The Democratic Party has chosen Frank R. Lutenberg to run for Senate.
Lutenberg will take the place of Robert Torricelli, who pulled out of his
election race less than 35 days before the election. Mr. Torricelli pulled
out of the race because of allegations concerning unethical gifts he may
have received. After a long day of searching by Democratic officials in New
Jersey, Mr. Lutenberg was finally chosen as the candidate. He had served in
the Senate previously, and promises to work on environmental and medical
insurance issues if elected.

* Hurricane season continues in full force as Hurricane Lili traveled
across Cuba today. Upgraded to a Category 2 hurricane, the storm included
winds of up to 100 mph. Though no one in Cuba was seriously hurt, seven
people in Jamaica were killed. The storm is expected to hit the Gulf Coast
of the U.S. on Wednesday morning, and Louisiana and Texas residents are
already preparing to leave.
