Omayma Ahmad, an English and Arabic teacher who while pregnant almost three years ago survived a rare heart surgery and went on to deliver a healthy baby boy, died of heart failure Aug. 6 at Good Samaritan Hospital. The Baltimore resident was 40. Born with a serious heart defect in Khartoum, Sudan, Ms. Ahmad underwent three open-heart surgeries. When she faced an aortic valve replacement - an operation in which her heart would be stopped and a machine would circulate her blood - in 2003 when she was pregnant, her Johns Hopkins Hospital doctors urged her to terminate her pregnancy.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Saddam Hussein's defense minister quietly turned himself in yesterday morning in northern Iraq, ending weeks of delicate negotiations between U.S. commanders and his intermediaries. Former Gen. Sultan Hashim Ahmad gave himself up to U.S. Maj. Gen. David Petraeus, commander of the 101st Airborne Division, in Mosul shortly after 9 a.m. Ahmad is listed as 27th on the Americans' list of 55 most-wanted Iraqis. He is the 38th to be taken into custody. Ahmad's face became known worldwide after he met U.S. generals in Iraq's formal surrender to the Persian Gulf war in 1991.

Terrorist By John Updike Updike's chilling novel knits together his familiar preoccupations - sex, death, religion. In a slumping New Jersey factory town, 18-year-old Ahmad Mulloy, half-Irish, half-Egyptian, is intoxicated by Islamic radicalism. Prodded by an ambiguous Yemeni imam, Ahmad becomes part of a deadly plot, and it falls to a weary high school counselor to try to pull him back from the edge.

WASHINGTON -- Although Bush administration officials have denied that they transfer terrorism suspects to countries where they are likely to be abused, a classified memorandum described in a court case indicates that the Pentagon has considered sending a captured militant abroad to face interrogation under the threat of torture. The classified memo is summarized - although its actual contents are blacked out - in a petition filed by attorneys for Majid Mahmud Abdu Ahmad, a detainee held by the Pentagon at its facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

There was just one patient on the operating table, but two lives were at stake. Doctors had urged Omayma Ahmad to end her pregnancy before undergoing an aortic valve replacement - a complex surgery in which her heart would be stopped and a machine would take over circulation of her blood. The operation wasn't just risky for her: It was even more dangerous to her unborn child. "They said, `The chances that the baby will survive are less than 40 percent,'" Ahmad, a native of Sudan, recalled.

Formal complaints have been filed against the Howard County public school system and Police Department after a Glenelg High School sophomore said excessive force was used when he was arrested by a school resource officer for refusing to change seats in class, his lawyer said yesterday. At a news conference in front of police headquarters in Ellicott City, attorney Hassan M. Ahmad said his client is pursuing administrative remedies. But the student, who is Middle Eastern and Muslim, and his family have not ruled out legal action or the possibility that the arrest by Officer Kelly Smith was racially motivated.

One day after Pakistan rather sullenly marked its 50th anniversary last month, I was bumping along a stretch of broken concrete and dirt about 200 miles south of Islamabad, the capital. The Pakistani driver, who would eventually become my close friend after another 1,000 miles, turned to me with a question."You know," asked Ahmad, swerving around a crater that could have swallowed his little taxi, "how Pakistan was listed No. 2 in the world in corruption."Yeah, I said, I'd heard something about it. Pakistan had been ranked second only to Nigeria in a 1996 "global corruption index" by an outfit called Transparency International.

The Maryland basketball staff's recruitment of Ohio forward Esa Ahmad remains an all-out pursuit. Wednesday night, the entire staff - head coach Mark Turgeon and assistants Dustin Clark and Bino Ranson - visited with Ahmad and his parents at his Cleveland home. "They were just saying I'm a top priority and they want me to get to campus and visit," said Ahmad, a 6-foot-7 rising senior ranked the No. 17 power forward and No. 63 overall prospect in the 2015 247Composite.

Ahmad Bradshaw has said that he plans to play Sunday, which should cause some concern for the Ravens. The New York Giants running back leads the team in rushing, piling up 869 yards and five touchdowns on 196 carries. And in his only meeting against the Ravens on Nov. 16, 2008, Bradshaw averaged 10.7 yards on just nine carries, rushing for 96 yards. That might not bode well for a Ravens defense that just surrendered 118 yards and one touchdown to the Denver Broncos' Knowshon Moreno in last Sunday's 34-17 loss.

Terrorist John Updike Alfred A. Knopf / 310 pages / $25 The question consumes us, especially since Sept. 11: Who are these terrorists eager to blow up thousands of strangers - and themselves? Who would embrace the unimaginable pain of that kind of death for even a few seconds, becoming merely a splash of blood, a few bits of bone, a sprinkling of ash? In pained bewilderment, we imagine suicide bombers as nearly subhuman, seared by hate and incapable of empathy. Those questions must have haunted the writer John Updike.

KABUL, Afghanistan -- Interior Minister Ali Ahmad Jalali, one of the most respected members of President Hamid Karzai's Cabinet, resigned yesterday after complaining for months that some senior officials were involved in drugs and corruption. Jalali announced his resignation in an interview with a private Afghan television station but was evasive about his reasons for stepping down. "I will not work as Interior minister anymore," Jalali told Tolo TV. "One of the main reasons is that I wish to resume my academic research.

Five-year-old Taleah Ahmad pressed her hands onto the white moon that her father had drawn and then rubbed the chalk in circles to make it appear more iridescent and smooth. Craters weren't necessary. The rocks packed into the pavement took care of that as the family of three worked on a space scene yesterday at the Creative Alliance's Chalk It Up event in Highlandtown. All types of artists - from professionals to toddlers, solo or in groups - lined up along Baltimore's Eastern Avenue and East Avenue to create fleeting canvases that today will either be driven over, walked on or washed out. "Dad, don't you think we have enough stars?"
