Tonight on Special Report with Brit Hume:

The Beltway Sniper appears to have struck again, as a bus driver is shot and fatally wounded in the Aspen Hill area of Montgomery County, Md.


• Israel holds off on immediate retaliation for a bus bombing that killed 14 Israelis, along with two attackers, but troops destroy the homes of a suicide bomber and a suspected militant. It marks the first time in months that the Israeli military has not responded quickly to a major Palestinian attack.

• Germany's parliament confirms Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder for a second four-year term, formally approving his center-left coalition's election victory last month.
