A SYMBOL OF national discord, this former captain in the Afghan army stands
in Herat, Afghanistan. Now a Moudjahedeen rebel leader, he joined with

hundreds of resisters to fight the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Hundreds
of rebels have been executed since last week's fighting.

Soviets alerted for -rebel uprising in Kabul

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP)-Soviet and Afghan
troops were placed on full alert yesterday in
'readiness for possible new anti-communist
emonstrations and violence as worshippers
emerge from prayer today in Kabul's mosques.
Spokespersons for the Islamic guerrilla
movement told reporters new attacks were
planned for today despite a reign of terror in
rebel strongholds by the 2,000-man militia of the
ruling Khalq People's Party.
Reliable diplomatic sources said dozens of
alleged rebels or rebel sympathizers have been
executed since last week's fighting. Rebel
sympathizers claimed the militia had executed
"many hundreds."
SOME WESTERN diplomats expressed
skepticism about the guerrillas' ability to mount
another citywide offensive so soon after suffering
atleast 306kitd andnd estimated 1,000 injured

in last week's street battles. The government has
blamed the fighting on "imperialist agents and
saboteurs" in the pay of Pakistan, China and the
United States.
The Pakistani news agency PPI said rebels in
Afghanistan shot down two Soviet helicopters
Sunday in Ghazn4 nd Kandhar provinces and
killed 41 troops, including three Russian officers,
in a night attack a week ago in Iuar province.
The news agency said demonstrations against
the Soviet intervention had occurred in all the
provinces, in northern, central, and southern
Afghanistan. It also reported that Afghan troops
are deserting in large numbers because the
Soviets have forced the Afghanistan people to
fight against the rebels while the Russians remain
in the background.
NONE OF THE information reported by the

Pakistani news agency could be confirmed from
other sources.
Although the shops have reopened after their
week-long strike and most road blocks have
disappeared from the city center, there was still a
noticeable atmosphere of tension, particularly in
districts regarded as sympathetic to the rebels.
Military observers said they believed the rebels
suffered heavy casualties when they were fired on
by Soviet tankstand helicopte'rs, but most of the
survivors went 'back into hiding with their
weapons and were undoubtedly planning new
attacks.
In the Old City, in the nearby Maiwand district
and in other known rebel strongholds, the military
command appeared to rely largely on the Khalq
militia to prevent a new guerrilla offensive or anti-
communist demonstrations.

The U.N. fact-finding commission,

Moslem militants, will visit the 50
American hostages held for 17 weeks in

The agency report, broadcast by

place.
THE TERSE announcement, an ap-
