Explosion kills school childrenA
A father bends over his child who was injured in a gas explosion yesterday at a state-run school in Ortuella, Spain.
Sixty-four people were killed and over 100 injured in the explosion that hurled children through windows. Officials said
they believed a gas-fired boiler exploded while a plumber was working nearby with a smoldering iron.

embankment levee collapsed beneath a

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP)-The
Iranian Parliament this weekend
probably will add new conditions for the
release of the 52 American hostages,
and if the United States does.not meet
he demands the captives may go on
trial, Iranian leaders said yesterday.
At the same time, however, one of the
officials, Parliament Speaker Hashemi
Rafsanjani, appeared to open the door a
little further to a quick resolution of the
RAFSANJANI, in an interview with
the Paris newspaper Le Monde, was
quoted as saying the Carter ad-
ministration would not have to im-
mediately fulfill all the conditions
before the hostages are freed.
Some kind of "guarantees" of future
compliance with the more difficult
demands would be enough, he repor-
The latest statements from Iran ad-
ded to expectations of a break in the
hostage crisis before Nov. 4, the date of
the U.S. presidential election and first
anniversary of the seizure of the U.S.
Embassy in Tehran.
THE FIRST strong signs of possible
*movement in the impasse came Wed-
The chairman of a seven-man
parliamentary commission studying
the hostage issue, Moussavi Khoeini,
-said the Parliament would probably
;nnounce the conditions Sunday, and if
the United States meets the demands
the hostages could be freed as early as
Monday. The Iranian prime minister,
Mohammad Ali Rajai, said it appeared
*that the United States was ready to ac-
eept the conditions.
Iranian officials have said the com-
mission is likely to recommend the four
conditions previously set down by
supreme leader Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini: return of the late shah's
wealth to Iran, "unfreezing" of Iranian
assets in U.S. banks, dropping of
American court claims against the
Iranian government, and a U.S.
promise not to interfere in Iran's inter-
CARTER administration officials
said the known conditions would be dif-
ficult but not impossible to meet.
"N U l
But Ali Akbar Nateq Noori, a mem-
ber of the commission reached by
telephone in Tehran by The Associated
Press in Beirut, said yesterday "some
more conditions may be added" to the
four basic demands. Rafsanjani was
quoted as saying it was "probable" that
"supplementary conditions" will be
Neither specified what the new con-
ditions might be, but speculation has
centered on such previously stated
Iranian demands as a U.S. "apology"
for the past American role in Iran and
two items linked to Iran's war with
Iraq: delivery of U.S. military spare
parts to the Iranian armed forces, and
removal of U.S. radar planes from
ASKED WHAT would happen if the
United States did not accept the con-
ditions, Noori said, "Our first decision
will be like before, the;question of a
Asked whether this meant the
hostages would be put on trial as
alleged spies, as the Iranians have
repeatedly threatened, Noori said, "We
will have to consider this later."
"If other conditions are difficult to
satisfy immediately, Parliament could
demand guarantees, still to be defined,
and free the hostages without delay."

returning the late Shah Mohammad
Reza Pahlavi's wealth might prove the
most difficult demand to meet.
The Iranian government has filed a
New York lawsuit demanding $56
billion in damages from the Pahlavi
estate and family for what it 'says were
three decades of massive corruption
before he was driven from power by
Khomeini's revolution in February
Eliminating court claims against
Iran may also be difficult. More than
200 lawsuits have been filed by
American banks and firms against Iran
for lost assets, broken contracts and
Noori indicated the hostages might be
freed one at a time or in small groups.
