Recount in Taiwan:

Chen Shui-bian, leader of the Republic of China (Taiwan), yesterday agreed to support a recount of ballots to end a dispute over his re-election in Saturday's vote.

Mr. Chen won by the narrowest margin in Taiwan's history, triggering accusations of fraud and demands for a recount.

In Washington, Taiwan's top diplomat hailed the announcement as a clear indication that the wrenching election dispute was moving toward a peaceful settlement.
