PAULA ZAHN, CNN ANCHOR: We need to take a live picture in from the Ivory Coast, where that C-130 is about ready to take off with those dozens of schoolchildren who were rescued after being caught in the crossfire of a civil war. According to the folks who ran the school, the kids, although they were told to put their heads on the floor and cover the backs of their necks, really never felt great fear. And even Secretary Rumsfeld said yesterday he didn't feel that the civil war posed any direct threat to these children, as well as the rest of the Americans who remain on duty in the Ivory Coast.
This is going to take some while for this plane to taxi off and we're going to stay with the picture for a moment or two.
