mail-bomb murder in Los
Angeles in 1980.
In the Manning case, the
prosecuting U.S. attorney,
Nancy Hieben Stock, said
that a provisional arrest war-
rant, the first step in the ex-
tradition process, has been
sought from Israeli
The official declined to con-
firm or deny this action, or
any other matter pertaining
to the extradition.
"It is up to Israel to make
the first announcement," he
said, adding that a case
usually becomes public when
the suspect is arrested at his
place of residence.
A federal grand jury has in-
dicted Manning, 36, and his
wife, Rochelle, 48, on charges
that they mailed a disguised
bomb device to a Los Angeles
computer firm, with the in-
tention of killing its owner.
The package was opened by

Washington (JTA) — Pro-
Palestinian terrorists killed
155 fewer people in 1987 than
they did in 1986, the State
Department revealed Monday
in its annual report "Patterns
of Global rIbrrorism."
The 70-page report said
that terrorists killed 295 peo-
ple and.wounded 770 in 1987,
down from 450 deaths and
1,125 injuries in 1986.
But Israel, the West Bank
and Gaza Strip saw roughly
the same number of incidents
between 1986 and 1987,

about 25 percent of the 1986
worldwide total of 774 in-
cidents, and 1987 total of 832
By contrast, the second
most popular venue for ter-
rorist attacks was Pakistan,
site of 17 percent of the
"Israel remained the
primary target of Palestinian
terrorists in 1987," the report
said. It cited an April 1986 at-
tack into northern Israel,
which killed two Israeli
soldiers along with three ter-
rorists linked to Al-Fatah, the
military wing of the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
On terrorist acts committ-
ted by Jews, the report noted
that life sentences for three
Jewish settlers convicted of
murdering West Bank Arabs
were reduced in March 1987.
In October, the Knesset
defeated a bill that would
have pardoned seven
members of the Jewish
underground who had
previously been convicted of
"terrorist crimes" against

Geneva (JTA) — Speakers at
a recent U.N. human rights
convention accused Israel, in
the words of one delegate, of
flouting "the most fundamen-
tal principles of international
Delegates to the U.N:s sub-
commission on human rights,
which recently considered the
plight of Syria's Jewish
population, turned their at-
tention to Israel's handling of
the Palestinian "intifada," or
Yves Lausrin, observer for
the International Federation
of Human Rights, said his
organization was "gravely
concerned" about human
rights violations by Israeli
authorities in the ad-
ministered territories.
The Paris-based Interna-
tional Federation was respon-
sible for launching an appeal
to the Syrian government on
behalf of that country's Jews.
Other delegates offering
criticism of Israel were
representatives from Nigeria,
Algeria and the Arab
Lawyers Union.
