美联社新闻一分钟[2006-11-23]

1. If you’re planning to get away this Thanksgiving, chances are if you haven’t left yet, some holiday hassles will be in you future. Long lines are building at major airports including Washington, Chicago and Dallas. AAA estimates more than 38 million people will travel 50 miles or more for Thanksgiving.

2. Ninety homes were damaged when an explosion from a nearby chemical plant shook the town of Danvers, a neighborhood about 20 miles north of Boston. Authorities in Massachusetts are pleased that despite the widespread damage only 10 people were hurt and none seriously injured.

3. "No comment". That’s the response from the United States Secret Service after President Bush’s 24-year-old daughter Barbara Bush was robbed of her purse and cellphone in broad daylight while visiting Argentina.

4. It sounds like a thriller movie, but it’s not. Philippines' airport authorities have foiled an attempt by a Filipino woman to smuggle more than 100 poisonous snakes and lizards to Thailand Tuesday.
