London commuters got back on board the city's reopened Piccadilly Line subway service for the first time since the bombings. The worst-hit carriage blown up on July 7 was on a Piccadilly train traveling between King's Cross and Russell Square stations. The blast killed 27 people.

Commuters say they felt a mixture of sadness and determination as they got back on the Piccadilly line. "It's a bit sad actually, coming from King's Cross to Russell Square," said one woman. "I felt a bit sad, you know, because of what happened; but you know, I'm glad, I'm glad they've opened it up again. Life goes on."

President Putin has invited more than 50 world leaders to attend the festivities in Moscow, which will culminate with a military parade on Red Square Monday, featuring 2,500 war veterans, as well as Soviet-era tanks and trucks.

He spoke in Bratislava's main square, packed with Slovaks who had braved the elements on a blustery winter day. The president recalled their triumph over communist rule, hailed their entry into NATO and the European Union, and cited the example they have set for others. "Every Slovak can be proud of these achievements. And the American people are proud to call you allies and friends and brothers in the cause of freedom," he said.

Having braved three days of driving snow and plunging temperatures, the opposition demonstrators show no signs of letting up. Kievs central Independence Square remains packed with Yuschenko supporters, who say they will not go home until he is declared the rightful winner.

A short while later, the skies of Kiev were filled with fireworks and the near constant echo of car horns honking in support of Mr. Yushchenko, in scenes eerily reminiscent of Georgias peaceful Rose Revolution. But not far from the central square, a different scene unfolds. Hundreds of large trucks are barricaded outside the entire perimeter of Central Election Commission headquarters. And nearby, some one thousand special police in full riot gear were unloading as the midnight hour approached. The only thing noticeably absent from Kiev's streets are any signs of Yanukovych supporters.

"It's the worst kind of Monday morning quarterbacking [second-guessing]. It is especially shameful in the light of a new tape from America's enemy," the president said. "Our commander in Afghanistan, Tommy Franks, recently said the Senator's understanding of events does not square with reality."
