fault, said the agency, and "con-
trary to all international rules,
four Israeli fighters intercepted
the plane and fired at it."
Several survivors, had under-
gone surgery and their 'condition
did not permit newsmen to see
them, a hospital spokesman said.
The hospital sources added that
several were having plastic sur-
gery for burns.

Representatives of the French
embassy, the international com-
mittee of the Red Cross and the
United Nations have been in con-
tact with the hospital and announc-
ed they would visit the survivors
tomorrow.
A detailed inquiry has been ord-
ered into the incident, informed
sources said last night.
A report on the incident was

cabled to Knut Hammerskjoeld,
secretary general of the Interna-
tional Airlines Association (IATA),
at his request, Israel radio re-
ported.
Israeli aviation authorities ex-
pectedIATA headquarters insGe-

normal commercial flight, Egypt
had asked the International Civil
Aviation Organization to take ur-
gent measures to deal with Israel's
action.
It said that the Egyptian author-
ities have in their possession a
voice recording of the conversation
between the captain of the Libyan
Boeing 727 airliner and Cairo Air-
port, and that the tape would be
placed at the disposal of interna-
tional organizations investigating
the incident.
Meguid's call on the secretary
general was apparently scheduled
late in the day and was not on
Waldheim's published list of ap-
pointments.
Neither Egypt nor Libya has so
far requested any Security Coun-
cil action on the airliner incident.
The U.N. delegates from non-
aligned countries expressed "soli-
darity with the countries which
have been the victims of the Is-
raeli aggression." They called upon
"the international community to
put an end to the policy of Is-
rael."
President Nixon sent a message
to Libyan leader Muammar Kadafi
and another to President Anwar
Sadat of Egypt. A number of Egyp-
tians were aboard the plane when
it was fired upon and forced down
in the Israeli-occupied Sinai Des-
ert.
Israel said its planes opened fire
after the airliner refused to heed
warnings that it was in a prohib-
ited area.
A statement issued by the Tunis-
ian government said the inter-
national community should take
measures against "this new form
of terrorism."
President Houari Boumedienne of
Algeria called the incident "a vio-
lation of the most elementary hu-
man principles."
Cairo radio quoted an Egyptian
government spokesperson as say-
ing the downing was "willful, de-
liberate m u r d e r of unarmed
civilians, including women and
children,"

Egypt sent a telegram to Wald-
heim about what it called the
"criminal incident." Details of the
message were not given.
All Cairo newspapers gave ban-
ner headline treatment to the in-
cident.
"This barbaric crime offers to
the whole world a new proof of
who the terrorists are, and who
made committing crimes against
civilians an official policy, and who
the pirates are who violate inter-
national law and tradition," an
editorial in Al Akhbar said.

la bases
Foreign Minister Khalil Abu
Hamad said the real aim of the
attack was to cause internal fric-
tion between the Lebanese people
and the Palestinians living in thisJ
country.
Observers here said the raid
came as a surprise because there
had been no reports of any recent
Palestinian commando a c t i o n
against Israel which could be link-
ed with Lebanon.
Previous Israeli action against
Lebanon has usually been accom-
panied by announcements of guer-
rilla activity in northern Israel or
neighboring occupied Syrian ter-
ritory.'
The last Israeli raids were about
four months ago and the Lebanese
borders have been generally quiet
since then.
Apart from the timing, the meth-
od of yesterday's attack was also;
unexpected. Israeli forces have
never before been in action on the
ground north of Beirut.
Similar raids have been mounted
on several occasions in south Leb-
anon, and in December 1968 Israeli
commandos attacked Beirut air-
port, but attacks in the north of
the country had previously been
confined to air strikes.

YPSILANTI - The pilot and co-
pilot of a twin engined Lear Jet;
were killed yesterday attempting;
to land their plane at the Univer-
sity-owned Willow Run airport, 12
miles East of Ann Arbor. A pas-
senger on the plane was unhurt.
The jet, owned by Air Taxi Inc.
of Kansas City, Kansas, was trans-
porting auto-parts for the Ford
Motor Company on a flight from
Kansas City when the pilot ap-
parently lost control and the plane
plunged to the ground in a field
near the end of the runway.
Wayne County Sheriff William
Lucas said it was a miracle the
plane had not landed on the nearby
Ecorse Rd., a busy highway.
"The only thing that kept that
plane from going on the highway
was a ditch," Lucas told reporters:
Investigators from the Wayne
County sheriff's department listed
the dead meneas pilot Al Israel,
36, of Independence, Mo., and co-
pilot Larry Armstrong, 33, of Su-
gar Creek, Mo.
No cause for the accident was
immediately known.
Officials from the Federal Avia-
tion Administration are scheduled
to begin a full probe into the crash.
