Salvadorans hit embassy

- Gunmen pumped rocket-propelled
grenades and submachine gun fire into
the U.S. Embassy yesterday in the
third attack in three weeks, injuring no
one but blowing a gaping 20-foot hole in
the mission's front wall, witnesses said.
The attack was carried out at about
3;10 p.m. EST by eight men dressed in
civilian clothes and armed with a hand-

held grenade launcher and several
submachine guns, said Amelia Brenes,
a waitress in a restaurant across the
street from the embassy.
The attackers calmly walked away
from the embassy after the shooting
stopped and piled into two waiting cars,
said Dr. Oscar Duras, whose office is
also across from the embassy.
Duras said the gunmen fired at least

three rocket-propelled grenades at the
embassy from about 75 yards away, but
one of the missiles may have fallen
short and exploded near a parking lot
across the street from the mission.
Journalists who witnessed the attack
said Salvadoran police guarding the
bunker-like building opened fire on the
unidentified attackers, missing them
but critically injuring two passengers
in a bus passing by the embassy.
Two witnesses who asked to remain
anonymous said U.S. Marines also
guarding the embassy had opened fire
on the attackers. U.S. Embassy
spokesman Howard, Lane declined
comment on the report.
Lane said no one was injured inside
the mission but the rockets blasted the
jagged, 20-foot hole on the front side
of the embassy's third floor, only one
window away from the offices of
Charge D'Affaire Frederick Chapin.

and west coast and the Great Lakes
create a selection that's hard to cat-
ch anywhere else dround.
The patrons span all age groups
and obviously appreciate both the
individual attention of the en-
thusiastic, pleasant and hard
working young staff and the fact
that there are no short cuts in the
food or its preparation. Altogether
a rewarding dining experience is
The seafood is prepared with a
variety of cooking methods (the
aroma is particularly appetizing
here). All dishes are tempting, but
if you need a stronger recommen-
dation, try the sauteed Pickerel
(when available).
Menus include specials each day
for lunch and dinner. For above-the-
commonplace chowders and son-
dwiches, the Cracked Crab is sure
to satisfy.
Small and unpretentious, it's a
good place to relax (a prime place
for people watching) and enjoy the
comforts of a complete bar. While
you're lingering over your drink you
will be treated to a fine selection of
background music from light
classical, big band and early jazz to
a variety of hit musical productions.,


As soon as you set foot aboard
the Cracked Crab, you will sense a
familiar seaboard flavor with
surroundings that exhibit authentic
nautical and fishing apparatus. It is
the closest thing in Ann Arbor to
small New England seafood haunt;
diners may even feel a slight shock
when they depart, to find them-
selves on W. Washington instead of
nestled in a cozy Cape Cod cove.
Cracked Crab has earned a fine
reputation for its seafood dishes.

All in all, the Cracked Crab is one of
the city's best bets.
Steak, chicken and other meat
dishes are served weekly.

Hours: Mon-Thurs 11 am-11 pm,
Fri & Sat 11 am-Midnight. Sun 4 pm-
10 pm.
