NEW YEARS REVELERS SEARCHED BY POLICE IN NEW YORK'S TIMES SQUARE.
New Year's eve revelers are searched by police near a pile of
confiscated bags and personal items as they enter New York's Times
Square on the last day of 2001 to ring in the new year, December 31,
2001. An estimated 500,000 people were expected to pack Times Square
under heavy security to watch the 95th annual "ball drop" marking the
end of 2001 and the beginning of 2002. REUTERS/Mike Segar
