At one point, a man appeared bran-
dishing a pistol and seemingly holding a
hostage. Shortly afterward, a man, his
hands roughly bound together, was
shown at the window to indicate to
police the terrorist had been seized.
When taken to a police van, his face was
streaming with blood.
The suspect had been overpowered
by security men of the Arab League,
which shares its offices in the building
with the PLO.
Later an anonymous caller to the
French news agency Agence France-
Prpsse claimed the attack was carried
out by a previously unknown "Rejec-
tion Front of Stateless Arab
THE CALLER also claimed the
group was responsible for a terrorist at-
tack Monday on the Iraqi Embassy in
Paris. That raid ended in a shootout
between French police and Iraqi Em-
bassy security guards who tried to kill
the terrorist when he surrendered. One
policeman and one Iraqi guard were
killed, and the terrorist and three other
persons were wounded.
It seemed unlikely, however, that the
same organization would carry out both
raids, since the targets were on op-
posite sides of the intra-Arab conflict.
The militantly anti-Israel gover-
nment of Iraq believes only war can
resolve the Arab-Israeli dispute, insists
on total dismantling of the Jewish state
and supports Palestinian extremists
trying to topple Arafat because of his
comparative flexibility. Arafat is
willing to accept co-existence with
Israel if negotiations yield a PLO-
governed state in the West Bank of the
Jordan River and the Gaza Strip.
GUERRILLA sources in Beirut had
said the two men who attacked the Iraqi
Embassy - one escaped - were mem-
bers of Arafat's Fatah guerrilla
organization, the largest and strongest

Arafat's chief spokesperson in Lon-
don, said Hammami, was assassinated
in his office last January, and the PLO
representative in Kuwait, Ali Yassin,
was murdered in June. The Fatah
group blamed both deaths on Iraqi-
backed Palestinian radicals.
Besides the raid on the Iraqi Em-
bassy here Monday, there have been
three other anti-Iraqi attacks on foreign
soil in the past week - unsuccessful at-
tempts to kill Iraqi diplomats in Lon-
don, Beirut and Karachi, Pakistan.

CARTER DECLINED to comment on
the Israeli air attack. Washington has
criticized Israel for past retaliatory
strikes across Arab borders.
The Tel Aviv bomb was hidden in a

usually is crowded on Thursdays by
shoppers preparing for the Jewish sab-

man, had died of injuries suffered in the
"I WENT OVER to the stall and sud-

said Suzanne Eluh, one of those injured

thern port city of Haifa.
