Soaking in a bath tub, Michael Phelps wears nothing but a small swimsuit, a pair of goggles atop his head and a stern look. Next to him, a pair of blue jeans spills from a Louis Vuitton bag. It marks a sophisticated turn as a pitchman for the Baltimore swimmer fresh off setting a record for the most Olympic medals earned in a career. But there's speculation his appearance in an advertising campaign shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz for the high-end designer's latest campaign could run him afoul of International Olympic Committee rules.

PESHAWAR, Pakistan -- Militants in Pakistan's restive tribal region kept up their pressure on government forces yesterday with an ambush of a military convoy that killed 17 soldiers, authorities said. The attack in the North Waziristan region was the latest in an upsurge of bloodletting that has left more than 100 people dead in the past six days and poses a severe challenge to the rule of Pakistan's president, Gen. Pervez Musharraf. Musharraf, whom the U.S. considers a key ally in the battle against Islamic terrorism, called on Pakistanis to support him in rooting out extremists, whom he blamed for a suicide bombing in the capital, Islamabad, on Tuesday.

ISTANBUL, Turkey -- A brazen ambush by Kurdish militants that left at least 12 Turkish soldiers dead touched off a major escalation in Turkey-Iraq tensions yesterday, bringing fears that Turkey would retaliate immediately by sending troops across the border into Iraq. But Turkey's prime minister said he delayed a decision after Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice personally intervened. The ambush by a large group of Kurdish militants about three miles from the border with Iraq early yesterday was seen as a direct provocation on the part of the militants, who have increasingly staged raids into Turkey from hideouts in the mountains of northern Iraq.

For about three seconds, those at the Baltimore Arena figured the Blast had scored the goal that put the game with St. Louis out of reach. That was about how long it took the referee to rule Lance Johnson's header with two minutes left in the third period a no-goal, spoiling the celebration that had erupted after the red goal light came on and erasing what would have been a six-point lead. Twenty seconds later, Ambush forward Joe Reininger scored a three-point goal, cutting the Blast lead to 6-5, the margin the Blast ended up winning by in front of 6,249 last night.

The first two regular season games between the Chesapeake Bayhawks and Hamilton Nationals produced results you might expect when two playoff caliber lacrosse teams collide. The Bayhawks managed to hang on and win both north-of-the-border games in close fashion, beating the Nationals by four goals in May and one goal two weeks ago. However, the outcome of Saturday night's contest was anything but predictable. The Bayhawks suffered their most lopsided loss this season as a flurry of first-half Hamilton goals led to a nine-goal run by the Nationals that lasted from 3:19 left in the first quarter until Brian Carr oll scored one minute into the second half.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys squared off Wednesday in opening statements in the double first-degree murder trial of a Baltimore man in what police said was an ambush outside an Odenton bar last year. Prosecutors hope to see Russell Kelscoe Harden, 26, sentenced to life without parole. But his lawyers said he was not involved in the shootings Nov. 16 that took the lives of two Annapolis men and injured two more. Shortly before the shootings, Harden was placed on house arrest for failing to comply with the terms of his release on a federal gun conviction in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

Two police officers were shot Saturday morning in what officials are calling an ambush while tracking down a suspect in West Baltimore who had assaulted two women earlier in the day. Police did not name wounded officers Saturday afternoon but said a 44-year-old officer, a 17-year veteran of the department, suffered three bullet wounds - including a serious one to the abdomen, which is not believed to be life-threatening. Another officer, who is 42 years old with three years' experience, suffered a minor wound to the buttock and was released from the hospital.

BAGHDAD -- When smoke from the thunderous blast cleared yesterday, little remained of an apartment building in the northern city of Mosul that officials say had been turned into a huge house-bomb that blew up as Iraqi troops searched for weapons. The blast killed as many as 15 people, injured scores, and came on the day that a car bomb in another northern city killed five. The attacks highlighted the challenge facing U.S. and Iraqi forces as they drive insurgents out of areas farther south, such as Baghdad and Anbar province, only to see them surface in the north.

By the time the St. Louis Ambush was finished with the Blast last night, the home team's defense was in tatters, the game was lost, 24-17, and coach Kevin Healey was calling the performance of his team in the decisive third period "a disgrace."The Blast had gone into last night's National Professional Soccer League game hoping to get its first victory of the season. Instead, it found itself outscored 10-0 in a defenseless third period and could find little to blame it on other than its own misdeeds.

BAGHDAD -- Al-Qaida militants holed up in a volatile southeastern Baghdad neighborhood were believed responsible for an ambush that killed five U.S. soldiers scouring the capital for bomb-building sites, a spokesman for U.S.-led forces said yesterday. After a sniper's bullet felled a soldier Saturday in the Arab Jubour district, his fellow troops from Task Force Marne rushed the house from which the shot was fired, said Janah Hammoud. As they did, an explosion from a pressure-activated blast killed four more soldiers and injured four.
