-- U.S. officials said there are still would-be terrorists inside the United States who they believe may try additional attack targets in this country.

"There is reason to believe not all the perpetrators are dead or in jail," one official said.

-- The FBI has received 36,000 leads in the case, and has issued a "watch list" of 100 names to various law enforcement agencies. Those 100 names are people who might have helpful information relating to the investigation. If located, they will be detained for questioning, officials said.

-- U.S. Attorney John Ashcroft said Friday that the FBI has distributed a watch list of about 100 people who may have information that could assist in the investigation by law enforcement agencies across the U.S. along with the Federal Aviation Administration, airlines, U.S. Customs and the Border Patrol.

-- The Treasury Department established a task force to track the assets of terrorist groups and disrupt their fund-raising.

-- Sen. Joseph Biden told CNN on Friday that there is evidence that several terrorist cells worked together to plan and carry out Tuesday's attacks.

-- The international police agency Interpol issued a special alert for bin Laden and said it received tips from 40 nations that may aid in his apprehension.

-- German officials released a man whom they had detained and questioned in connection with the terror attacks, the federal prosecutor's office said. German police detained the man and also brought in a woman for questioning, but found no reason to hold either one.

German prosecutors said two suspects believed to have died in the attack on the World Trade Center lived in the northern German city of Hamburg and were enrolled as students in at Hamburg Harburg Technical University. A third suspect now being sought also was thought to have been enrolled there.

The prosecutor said another suspect, thought to have died in the hijacked plane crash in Pennsylvania, also may have lived in Hamburg and was part of the same group.

-- Correspondent Susan Candiotti and free-lance producer Joanna Massee in Miami, CNN Madrid Bureau Chief Al Goodman and correspondents David Ensor, Kelli Arena and Mike Boettcher contributed to this report.
