On Wednesday, December 5th, at approximately 2 p.m., work was temporarily halted at the World Trade Center disaster site when a 55-gallon drum was punctured accidentally by a grappler, a back-hoe type machine. Once hazardous material investigators determined the drum contained cleaning fluid, work resumed. Nearby the rubble site, at the intersection of Rector and Washington streets, during a compressed- air test on a new 12- inch gas main, a pipe came apart and some air escaped, blowing out several windows in nearby buildings. A Consolidated Edison worker, a civilian and three police officers sustained minor injuries. On Tuesday, December 3rd, it was announced the NYPD plans to assist the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in interviewing dozens of immigrants being probed in the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The Bush administration announced it intends as part of its terrorist investigation to question 5,000 immigrants, most of them Muslims, who entered the United States since January 2000. One hundred twenty-seven people are on the list to be handled by the United States Attorney's Offices in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Investigators from this Department will handle the interviews of eighty-six people in New York City. The interviews, which could begin as early as this week, have sparked concern by New York's Arab and Muslim communities as well as by the New York Civil Liberties Union who consider the investigation a "fishing expedition." Attorney General John Ashcroft stated the objective of the interviews is to "collect any information the individuals on this list may have regarding terrorist elements in this country and abroad." Investigators have been advised to ask the

immigrants if they have ever been to Afghanistan, received terrorist training and if they are familiar with explosives, harmless chemicals or anthrax and also if they are aware of any suspicious activity. Other Maior Events of the Past Week
