 'Osama cannot hide from U.S.'
Washington, Sept. 15. The President George W. Bush vowed on Saturday that U.S. troops would hunt down terrorists and ``smoke them out of their holes'' in a long, unrelenting response to Tuesday's ghastly attacks. Americans must brace themselves for great sacrifices, he said, ``because the conflict will not be easy.'' He said simply: ``We're at war.''

U.S. may turn to India if Pak. refuses airbases
New Delhi, Sept. 15. The U.S. may ask India for airbases along the west coast, in case Pakistan refuses its airbases for launching punitive raids on Afghanistan.

Full support to U.S., says Pak.
Islamabad, Sept. 15. Giving in to the demands of the United States, the military establishment here today agreed to extend full support to the international community in bringing to book the ``perpetrators, organisers and sponsors'' of the terrorist strikes on the American cities.

 Proceed with caution: Opposition
New Delhi, Sept. 15. The Vajpayee Government today received the total backing of political parties across the spectrum in its effort to counter terrorism in the wake of the recent attacks in the U.S. However, the Opposition suggested that the Government exercise caution in dealing with the situation as national security was involved. Mr. Vajpayee assured the leaders that whatever decisions the Government took would be in the ``national interest.''

Security tightened at airports
New Delhi, Sept. 15. Security at all major and sensitive airports in the country has been tightened as a precaution against any fallout of U.S. action against suspected terrorists. India's Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) has deployed additional security forces, commandos, sniffer dogs and advanced anti- hijacking and anti-sabotage equipment.

Masood laid to rest
Peshawar, Sept. 15 The body of anti-Taliban military commander, Ahmad Shah Masood, who died yesterday of injuries sustained in an assassi-nation attempt on Sunday, was buried in Panjsher town in northern Afghanistan today, the AIP said.
