KYRA PHILLIPS, CNN ANCHOR: And we're talking Olympics. This is it live from Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport where we understand this plane that just pulled in is carrying the Olympic torch. It came from Greece, is now here in the United States.

Now the Olympic flame came back just this morning as we're showing you. The journey started yesterday, actually, in Athens, Greece. And the flame will now arrive this morning in Atlanta or has arrived in Atlanta and it will start on a relay through the United States. And we want to make sure that -- to mention that one of the torch runners will be our Paula Zahn. She's going to carry the flame this afternoon in Athens, Georgia.

Once again, getting ready and getting in the spirit of the Olympics.

Now are we going to wait and see if doors open up? Are we going to stand by? No, all right. I can tell you if there's some big pomp and circumstance we will come back to this.

But once again, we just wanted to let you know on a wider note, we've been having all this breaking news this morning out of the Middle East and we're talking about the war on terrorism in Afghanistan and now there's the situation in the Middle East with this all-out war that Ariel Sharon is talking about, this is a nice switch talking about the Olympics and freedom and the Games that will be heading up real soon.
