PLO Is Blamed

a city with hospitals, em-

The PLO is charged
with "forcibly holding the
remainder of the west Be-

Nazi-hunter Simon Wie-
senthal, head of the Nazi
Documentation Center in
Vienna, told Israel Radio
last week he was closer to
the capture of Nazi war
criminal Josef Mengele
than he had ever been.
He said in a telephone
interview that Mengele now
spent his time moving be-
tween Paraguay, Uruguay
and Bolivia. Wiesenthal
said that while a year ago he
and his colleagues had
known where Mengele had
been a year previously, they
now knew where he had
been five weeks ago.
