Iran ups oil
prices 60C
per barrel
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - The Iranian
government yesterday raised oil prices
by 60 cents a barrel and an oil company
official said "market conditions"
demanded it - apparently a reference
to world shortages.
Before dawn, a revolutionary firing
squad executed a doctor who ran a state
police hospital, the 200th person to die
at the hands of Islamic justice.
OFFICIALS OF the National Iranian
Oil Co. said beginning May 15, Iran will
impose its second additional surcharge
in a month, bringing the price to $17.17
per barrel of light crude and $16.64 for
heavy grades.
The move raised the prospect of more
surcharges by other petroleum expor-
ting countries, several of which have
announced increases in recent months.
On April 15, Iran slapped on surcharges
of $1.80 for heavy crude and $1.90 for
light crude.
Yesterday's announced increase will
help remedy what Iranian sources
claim has been a drop in oil income sin-
ce the February revolution led by
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
THE STATE radio broadcast said the
man executed, Akbar Bahadori, 53, a
surgeon in the central city of Arak,
where he ran the hospital, was convic-
ted by an Islamic court of corruption
and of paying supporters of the ousted
Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in Arak
to attack anti-shah protesters with
clubs. Bahadori was elected to
Parliament in 1975 and held the rank of
stte police colonel.
In other developments, Iranian
newspapers reacted angrily to foreign
criticism of Wednesday's execution of
multimillionaire Habib Elghanian, a
prominent Jewish leader accused of
corruption and associating with Israel.
The newspaper Ettelaat, noting a
U.S. State Department expression of
concern, said "The government of the
United States has been under the in-
fluence of the five-million strong
Jewish community of the United States
which controls many of that country's
mass media and has strong bases in the
Congress and the Senate."
THE NEWSPAPER Kayhan, in a
front-page editorial, said Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin's concern
over the execution "is in fact a protest
against the revolutionary movement of
a nation which is no longer willing to
submit itself to exploitation."

OFFICIALS SAID the following 16
states with operating reactors have no
federally-approved emergency plans:
Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Maine,
Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan,
Minnesota, Nebraska, North Carolina,

In addition, Arizona, Indiana,
