WASHINGTON (AP) — A large U.S. spy satellite has lost power and propulsion and could hit the Earth in late February or March, government officials said Saturday.

A senior government official says lawmakers and other nations are being kept apprised of the situation.

The satellite, which no longer can be controlled, could contain hazardous materials, and it is unknown where on the planet it might come down, they said.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the information is classified as secret.

“Appropriate government agencies are monitoring the situation,” said Gordon Johndroe, a spokesman for the National Security Council.

“Numerous satellites over the years have come out of orbit and fallen harmlessly. We are looking at potential options to mitigate any possible damage this satellite may cause.”

He would not comment on whether it is possible for the satellite to be perhaps shot down by a missile. He said it would be inappropriate to discuss any specifics at this time.

A senior government official said that lawmakers and other nations are being kept apprised of the situation.

The largest uncontrolled re-entry by a NASA spacecraft was Skylab, the 78-ton abandoned space station that fell from orbit in 1979. Its debris dropped harmlessly into the Indian Ocean and across a remote section of western Australia.

In 2000, NASA engineers successfully directed a safe de-orbit of the 17-ton Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, using rockets aboard the satellite to bring it down in a remote part of the Pacific Ocean.

In 2002, officials believe debris from a 7,000-pound science satellite smacked into the Earth’s atmosphere and rained down over the Persian Gulf, a few thousand miles from where they first predicted it would plummet.

  Samuel Eto'o of Cameroon fights for the ball at the African Cup of Nations  ACCRA, Jan. 26 (Xinhua) — Cameroon, dubbed as The Indomitable Lions, on Saturday proved its billing and spanked Zambia 5-1 in a Group C match of the Africa Nations Cup.

    The scoring binge began in the 28th minute with Geremi Njitap’s free kick. His teammate Joseph Desire Job got another goal three minutes later as two Zambian defenders missed the ball before the net.

    The hesitation of Zambian goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene made the defense more flagging in the 43rd minute. Cameroonian striker Achille Emana got the ball in his path and netted in easily.

    Cameroon’s shining star, Barcelona striker Samuel Eto’o did not show his brilliant talent too much and just converted a penalty in the 66th minute.

    The last goal of Cameroon was also due to the porous defense of the Zambian side as Job just ran with the ball into the net as Zambian goalkeeper Mweene was misled by his own team’s defender to the other side of the net.

    Zambia’s Christopher Katongo fetched one goal back in the 89th minute.

    Cameroon was defeated by defending champion Egypt 4-2 last Tuesday, raising the doubt whether The Indomitable Lions fell asleep in the continental tournament.

    Cameroon’s captain Rigobert Song, however, took the result easy as he assured before the match against Zambia that his team would move into the next round of the tournament.

    “In reality, our CAN 2008 begins on Saturday against Zambia,” Song said.
