In this CNN Student News: U.S. Conducts Two Anti-Terror Raids on Same Day; Federal Government Still Shut Down; Upcoming Fight Over Debt Ceiling

CARL AZUZ, CNN ANCHOR: Hi. I`m Carl Azuz. Welcome to CNN STUDENT NEWS. On September, 20th 2001 President George W. Bush declared the U.S. war on terror. It`s something you`ve grown up with. Two U.S. military operations that happened this weekend show it`s not over. The operations were both in Africa, in countries that are 3,000 miles apart. The first was in the Libyan capital of Tripoli. This is Abu Anas al Libi. He is the member of the al Qaeda terrorist organization. Early Saturday morning, a group of ten men surprised him on his way back to his home. The men were U.S. Special Operations Forces. A terrorism expert says that in a very precise operation the men snatched al Libi and were gone. He was one of the FBI`s most wanted terrorists because of his alleged role in two bombings in 1998. More than 200 people were killed and another 5,000 wounded when the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were attacked by al Qaeda.
