Pro-Palestinian Killed in France,
PLO Blames 'Zionist Agents

PARIS (JTA) — A pro-
Palestinian militant, shot
to death by two uniden-
tified gunmen in the
Latin Quarter Monday,
was identified as
Mahmoud Ould Saleh, 38,
from Mauritania.
He managed an Arab
book store and was a sup-
porter of the extremist
Palestinian "xejection
front," a group that re-
fuses any compromise
with Israel. The killers
escaped.
The Palestine Libera-
tion Organization ac-
cused "Zionist agents" of
murdering .Saleh as part
of "a huge plot to liq-
uidate the Palestinian
revolution."
Police said Saleh was
gunned down while he was
closing the shutters of the
book store. He was the
fourth Palestinian ex-
tremist killed in Paris
since 1972 when the PLO's
representative in France,
Mahmoud Hamshari, died
when a booby-trapped
telephone exploded in his
home.
Saleh temporarily took
over Hamshari's duties
until the appointment of

fore it exploded. Other
Palestinians slain here in
recent years were

Boudia, an El Fatah
militant who was blown
up in his car, and Basil
Kubaisi, who was shot to
death in a street.
