more suspected leftist extremists, but

THE KIDNAPPERS of Moro, a five-

ce a message attributed to the Red
Brigades announced Friday they were
"carrying out" the death sentence im-
posed on Moro, the 61-year-old
president of the ruling Christian
Democratic Party.
AUTHORITIES HAVE described the
arrested persons as "flankers" -
meaning supporters - of the Red
Brigades, the feared urban guerrilla
band whose membership and
organization is shadowy. But police
have not said whether any of the
arrested have direct links with the
gunmen who kidnapped Moro on March
16 after killing his five bodyguards.
The 26 persons picked up during the
weekend were charged with member-
ship in an armed subversive gang. A
leftist union at Rome's Policlinico
Hospital, two of whose members were
among those rounded up, issued a
protest calling them "hostages."
Since Moro's abduction, police have
arrested at least 40 persons but only one
is known to have been directly involved
with the Brigades. He is Cristoforo
Piancone, wounded in Turin after an
ambush squad killed a prison guard.
THE LAST message from the kid-
nappers did not specify that Moro
actually had been killed. The baffling
wording has spawned new anguish for
the nation and a variety of theories
about his fate.
Italian officials said the silence could
mean that Moro is still alive and that

government's refusal to release 13 im-
prisoned terrorists in exchange for his
life, are holding out for some con-
