President Bush says the new U.N. resolution on Iraq shows the international community stands side-by-side with the Iraqi people. Mr. Bush said the Security Council resolution approved Tuesday supports the interim Iraqi government that will take power June 30th, free elections, and the presence of the multinational force to provide security. British Prime Minister Tony Blair said the unanimous passage of the resolution proves the international community has moved beyond past differences on Iraq.

North Korea has accused South Korean warships of violating the two countries' disputed western sea border, warning that such incidents could lead to military clashes. North Korean state-run media quoted a North Korean navy official as saying Pyongyang will have no option but to deal what he called "merciless blows" against South Korea if its ships violate the sea border again.

The body of former President Ronald Reagan will be flown from California to Washington today (Wednesday) for the start of official ceremonies to honor the nation's 40th chief executive. A military procession with a horse-drawn caisson will take him from the White House area to the Capitol building, where he will lie in state until a national funeral service Friday. In California, tens of thousands of people have paid their final respects to the late president, filing past his casket at the Reagan library, near Los Angeles. Mr. Reagan will be buried on the library grounds at sunset Friday.
