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."

— Later in the interview, Robin Roberts asked specifically "as it stands right now, you are saying you are not going to burn the Quran on Saturday?"

"That is correct," Jones replied.

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