WASHINGTON -- U.S. Park Police announced five arrests yesterday in a recent series of armed robberies and sexual assaults of nighttime visitors to the National Mall, the capital city's leading tourist attraction. The Park Police, charged with patrolling the Mall, said the suspects are local teenagers and young adults. City officials hailed the arrests and offered assurances that the Mall, which features the Washington Monument, Lincoln and Jefferson memorials and major Smithsonian museums, is safe for visitors at any time of day. Washington has long battled a significant crime problem but has strived to insulate the Mall and other historic sites favored by tourists.

WASHINGTON -- Acknowledging a "tension" between his administration and the press, President Bush confronted an often critical audience of newspaper editors yesterday with a heavy helping of the disarming charm and self-confidence he has exuded since his re-election. "I know there is a tension now," Bush told members of the American Society of Newspaper Editors pressing him to make the work of his White House and many agencies more open to the public. "I understand there's a suspicion that ... we're too security-conscious."

Baltimore's convention and visitors bureau has landed a prestigious convention of meeting planners - people who will influence the locations of meetings across the nation for years to come. The Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association called it a coup. The American Society of Association Executives said the decision to move its 2004 winter meeting to Baltimore resulted largely from lack of space in the Washington Convention Center in February. Baltimore officials were excited about the chance to showcase the city to such an influential group.
