National and International News-Monday, Oct. 23rd

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Ramadan is ending, but one Iraqi man says "there will be no holiday." The killing has continued, as bombers targeted shoppers rounding up last-minute items for feasts to mark the end of the Muslim holy month. Dozens of Iraqis and at least eight American troops were killed over the weekend.

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Paul has become a Category Two hurricane, as it spins on a course toward Baja California. Top winds are now near 100 miles per hour. Forecasters say the storm could strike Mexico tomorrow.

HOUSTON (AP) - Jeffrey Skilling learns today how long he will spend behind bars for the Enron scandal. At least ten people victimized by the company's 2001 collapse have signed up to speak at the sentencing of the former C-E-O.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - An upstate New York family that's already lost two children now must bury a third. A six-year-old boy was found hanging from a bedroom doorknob Saturday in what police say looks like a tragic accident. Family members think the boy was trying to imitate wrestling moves he'd seen on T-V.

DETROIT (AP) - Kenny Rogers says the smudge on his left thumb at the start of last night's World Series game was just dirt and resin, nothing illegal. The Tigers' lefty went on to smother St. Louis on just two hits over eight innings, as Detroit evened the series at a game apiece, beating the Cardinals 3-to-1.
