Vice1 President Dick Cheney made a rare campaign appearance to stump2 for Republicans in his home state of Wyoming. He also voiced his support for GOP presidential candidate John McCain. McCain's Democratic rival Barack Obama was quick to pounce3 on the Cheney endorsement4. "Do you think Dick Cheney is delighted to support John McCain because he thinks John McCain is gonna bring change to Washington? Do you think, John McCain and Dick Cheney have been talking about, how to really shake things up, get rid of the lobbyists, and put Halliburton on the sidelines, and put an end to the old boys club in Washington! " Obama speaking at a rally in Pueblo5, Colorado this afternoon. McCain was hammering away at economic issues as he campaigned today in Virginia. "The answer to a slowing economy is not higher taxes, but that's exactly what's gonna happen when the Democrats6 have total control of Washington. We can't let it happen, my friends. " McCain was speaking at a rally in Springfield, Virginia. He also campaigned today in Pennsylvania.

 For the first time in several days, a shipment of emergency supplies has arrived outside the city of Goma, in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Rebels have taken over the area in eastern Congo, forcing tens of thousands of people out of camps where they were living. From a UNICEF feeding station outside Goma, the BBC's Peter Greste reports energy biscuits have been distributed, but it's not enough for the large numbers of people displaced by the fighting. "These people are desperate, they're living in the open. They're living without water, without food, without shelter, and they're extremely hungry. Hopefully, the situation will ease. The UNICEF says that they're starting to bring in more supplies, as they are able to mobilize the staff that they sent home during the worst fighting. But clearly, it's going to take time to feed these people. It's going to take time to get the water in here, given the fact that a lot of children, I can see, have skin infections, have running noses, have breathing problems. " The BBC's Peter Greste reporting from near Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

 Iraq has sent more troops and security forces to its border with Syria, following a US raid just inside Syrian territory nearly a week ago. NPR's Jonathan Blakely reports from Baghdad.

 Iraqi police say a quick reaction force has moved to the border town of Qaim in Anbar province. The move is to prevent Al-Qaeda militants8 in Syria from entering the country. Meanwhile, Syria has pulled some of its own troops from the Iraqi border. The target was apparently9 a key  militant7 who helped smuggle10 foreign fighters into Iraq. News agencies say U. S. officials claim he was killed. Damascus says eight civilians11 lost their lives. It's demanding an apology from the U. S. Baghdad also denounced the attack, but says Syria needs to keep militants from entering Iraq. Jonathan Blakely, NPR News, Baghdad.

 Bolivia's President Evo Morales says he is suspending all cooperation with the US Drug Enforcement Administration and he accused the agency of spying. It was the latest example of the icy relations between the US and Bolivia. Bolivia expelled the US ambassador to the country last month and the Bush Administration later put Bolivia on a list of countries that failed to meet antidrug obligations. Bolivia is the world's third-largest cocaine12 producer.

 Security officials in Yemen say the six suicide bombers13 who attacked the U. S. embassy there last month had ties to the group Al-Qaeda in Iraq. It was the deadliest direct assault on an American embassy in a decade. Dale Gavlak has more.

 Authority said half the men fought with Al-Qaeda in Iraq, while others received training and weapons at an Al-Qaeda camp in southern Yemen. All were in their thirties but were not leading members of the terror network. Yemen is the ancestral homeland of Osmar Bin14 Laden15. Rocket-propelled grenades, automatic weapons and at least one car  bomb at the embassy's gate killed 19 people, including an 18-year-old American woman. While Washington considers Yemen an ally in the war on terror, US officials have expressed frustration16 with what they say is its "revolving17 door policy toward Al-Qaeda militants. " For NPR News, I'm Dale Gavlak in Amman, Jordan.

 In Sumter, South Carolina, police say an ex-convict who thought he was being robbed shot and killed a 12-year-old trick-or-treater last night. The man sprayed nearly 30 rounds with an assault rifle from inside his home after hearing the boy knock at the door.

 Daylight saving time ends overnight tonight. Clocks are to be set back an hour as of 2 am. The time change does not affect Arizona and Hawaii, which are on standard time year round.
