Much uncertainty remains about exactly what's going on with the now-international story about whether a tiny Florida church will or won't burn Qurans tomorrow, on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Pastor Terry Jones' latest comments, early today on ABC-TV's Good Morning America:

— "Right now, we have plans not to do it."

"That is correct," Jones replied.

It was left open whether the burning might be done at some later date.
