A Virginia man's charged with plotting to bomb the Washington D.C. subway system. NPR's Dina Temple-Raston reports, the FBI had been tracking Farooque Ahmed, who allegedly had been scoping out potential targets since spring.

Ahmed is alleged1 to have actually gone to a number of different metro2 stations and either diagram them or videotape them and try to look for places where he thought would be good places to plant bombs. This was someone who had dreamed up a scheme and the FBI sort of provided a way of his, allowing it to come to a little more fruition.

A new audio tape reported to be from al-Qaeda leader Osama bin3 Laden4 has surfaced on the Arabic Al Jazeera website. On the tape which could not be independently verified, the speaker threatens French citizens over their country's involvement in the US-led war in Afghanistan.

A federal judge in New Orleans has created the security zone around the Deepwater Horizon wreckage6 site. The security area will extend about 750 feet from the wreck5 and includes debris7 from the sunken oil rig. More on this from NPR's Carrie Johnson.

The US Justice Department asked the court to protect the search area and to make sure that any evidence is preserved as part of its massive investigation8 into the cause of the gusher9. The Justice Department is conducting civil and criminal probes, and it recently informed companies involved in the wreck to stay away from the site. Authorities already have moved a critical piece of evidence, the blowout preventer, to a NASA site where it rests under guard. The US government may enforce the judge's order which extends until October, 2011. Carrie Johnson, NPR News, Washington

It's a somber10 day in Argentina where people are mourning the death of one of their most prominent leaders, former President Nestor Kirchner, husband to Argentina President Cristina Fernandez. Kirchner died today of an apparent heart attack, though he was known for having a history of heart problems. Political observers say many were still stunned11 to hear of the 60-year-old's sudden death. Reporter Anny Morphy gives us a brief glimpse to Kirchner's controversial political life.

When Nestor Kirchner took office in 2003, Argentina was still reeling from the 2001 economic crisis. Under Kirchner's leadership, the country recovered political and economic stability. Originally from the Patagonia province of Santa Cruz, Kirchner started out as a lawyer. He later became a mayor, then governor, working his way up to the presidency12. As head of state, he was known for speaking out against the IMF and private companies. He also supported justice reforms that brought about trials to address human rights violations13 during the country's dictatorship. He was expected to run for president again in 2011. For NPR News, this is Anny Morphy.

The World Series starts tonight between two opponents without much championship pedigree. The San Francisco Giants host The Texas Rangers15. The Giants haven't won the World Series since the team started playing in San Francisco in 1958. The Rangers have never even played in the World Series. From San Francisco, NPR's Tom Goldman has this preview.

Let's make this simple. Tonight’s game, one of the World Series, comes down to this - can The Giants do what no other team has done, beat Cliff Lee in the postseason. The Rangers’ left- handed starting pitcher16 never has lost in the playoffs. The Giants believe they can do it based on very recent history. They beat Philadelphia's Roy Halliday in game one of the National League Championship Series. Halliday coming off a no-hitter was considered invincible17. Giants center fielder Cody Ross who slammed two home runs against Halliday in that win says the approach will be the same tonight.

“You’ve got to be aggressive. They make a mistake; you can't miss it, because you probably are not gonna get another one.”

Texas's batters18 won't have it easy. They'll be facing Giants' starter Tim Lincecum. He's won pitching Cy Young Award twice. Tom Goldman, NPR News, San Francisco
