In terroris
STUTTGART, West Germany
(AP) - State investigators reported
yesterday that. some circumstances
of the deaths of three imprisoned
terrorists last week remained a
"mystery," but an. official inquiry
upheld an autopsy report calling
them suicides.
The report said investigators failed
to determine how the pistols that
killed Andreas Baader and Jan-Carl
Raspe got into their cells. It conclud-
ed visiting lawyers might have sup-

plied them but acknowledged there
was no evidence of this.
LEFTISTS claiming the terrorists
were murdered held protest marches
and bombed West German property
throughout Europe last week. A
fourth jailed terrorist who officials
said stabbed herself denied Tuesday
there was any suicide pact.

t suicides
Wuerttemberg state prosecutors and
police officials said they found no
evidence of murder in their inter-
views with 90 persons and deposi-
tions by two doctors who took part in
the autopsy.
The autopsy report said Baader,
founder and co-leader of the Baader-
Meinhoff gang, and Raspe shot
themselves in the head, and Gudrun
Ensslin, Baader's mistress, hanged
herself with an electrical cord from
her cell window.
THE THREE were found dead in
their cells at the maximum security

hours after West German comman-
dos in Somalia foiled an air hijacking
staged to enforce demands for their
The inquiry also upheld the initial
announcement that Irmgard Moel-
ler, another terrorist imprisoned at
Stammheim, tried to stab herself
with a bread knife the same day.
Moeller, recovering in a hospital,
denied this through her lawyer
Tuesday. She said she became
unconscious after hearing shots and
awoke with a stab wound in her
A SPOKESMAN for the state
justice ministry, Helmut Engler,
said investigators believed lawyers
were able to supply guns to Baader
and Raspe because security viola-
tions at the prison were widespread.
Engler said some lawyers had been
caught trying to smuggle "forbidden
objects. . . such as ammunition and
printed matter" into the prison. He
also noted that a wire communica-
tion system between cells and a half
pound of explosives had been found
inside the prison.
The inquiry said the barrel of the
pistol in Raspe's cell was bought in
Basel, Switzerland, along with an
American-made carbine later found
on another West German anarchist.

"Most of the 'good' costumes were
gone within an hour, but we're going

Not surprised by the large student
turnout, Cannon smiled, and said, "I

anything for myself."

Extremist groups react violently
in the wake of terrorists' deaths

By United Press International
Italian leftists vowed to send a
"suicide commando" to kill the West
German ambassador and a rightist
bomb shattered a Paris union hall in
violence triggered by the prison
deaths of three West German terror-
Early today, almost simultaneous
blasts shook the Siemens, BMW, and
Opel auto buildings in Rome, blowing
out the shutters and show windows.
Other explosions damaged several
cars. At Pistoia, near Florence,
another BMW showroom was hit by a
predawn explosion.
THREE MEN at the West German
cultural center in Istanbul, Turkey,

were injured by a bomb thrown by
demonstrators shouting anti-German
slogans Tuesday, police said. Two
firebombs shattered the windows of a
German car showroom in Rome.
The Italian news agency, ANSA, in
Milan received the second death
threat in five days against WestX
German Ambassador Hans Arnold.
"As regards Arnold, we confirm
that within the next 200 hours he will
be executed by a suicide comman-
do," an anonymous telephone caller
said, adding a warning that all
German diplomats and their families
should leave Italy.
IN ISTANBUL, police said the
anti-German protestors fled after the

bomb explosion and no arrests were
The Rome firebombings caused
some damage but no injuries. Two
German schools shut down to prevent
possible attacks on students.
The Paris explosion smashed the
offices of the leftist French Magis-
trates Trade Union and handwritten
notes left behind indicated the bomb-
ing was carried out by rightists.
"WE ARE witnessing the emerg-
ence of rightist counter-terrorism,"
one police officer said. "We hope we
will stop this."
French police in theNancy region
near the German border were check-
ing out reports from a previously
unheard-of "Anti-Terrorist Brigade"
that it had killed one of the 16 West
Germans wanted for the kidnapping
of the slain German industrialist,
Hanns-Martin Schleyer.
Police said they also had found'a
West German man who identified
several young persons he met in a
chalet in a pine forest in France's
Jura Mountain range as being among
the 16 suspects in the Schleyer case.
Schleyer's body was found in
northeastern France shortly after
the three terrorists were found dead
in their Stuttgart prison cells. The
kidnappers had offered to exchange
Schleyer for the three and eight other
jailed terrorists.
