(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The breaking news on the cancellation of the Koran burning planned by an obscure Florida preacher, Terry Jones, who now said the burning may be back on because he was lied to about the New York City mosque being moved, introduced. [Earlier today, JONES - says the New York imam has agreed to move the location.] [Islamic Society of Central Florida Imam Muhammad MUSRI†- says Iman Feial Rauf has committed to meet with Pastor Jones to discuss relocating the mosque.] A statement from Rauf about Jones and Musri quoted. [Later, JONES - says he was told the imam would move the mosque away from Ground Zero.] [Later, MUSRI - responds to what Jones has said.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live interview held with Imam Musri about the whole matter. [MUSRI - says Jones is wrong: all he had was a commitment for a meeting if the Koran burning was canceled; states Jones got the message from many officials not to burn the Koran; suggests Jones found a way to stay in the spotlight and blackmail me.]
