South A fric ans raid Lesotho
MASERU, Lesotho- South African soldiers swept unopposed through the:
Lesotho capital before dawn yesterday and killed at least 37 people, in-
cluding women and children. It was South Africa's deadliest cross-border-
raid against black revolutionaries of the African National Congress.
The South African military commander, Lt. Gen. Constand Viljoen, said:

Four South Africans were wounded in the attack, Viljoen said in the South
African capital of Pretoria.

WASHINGTON- President Reagan's chief economist, forced to testify to
win his Senate confirmation, conceded yesterday that the economy is still,
"very weak" but predicted recovery is- just around the corner and that,
unemployment will soon decline.
"Unfortunately, we're still in the ambiguous bottoming-out range," said
Martin Feldstein, the newly confirmed chairman of Reagan's Council of
Economic Advisers, in response to hostile questioning from congressional -
Democrats on the Joint Economic Committee assailed the Reagan ad-:
ministration for its repeated, year-long forecasts of imminent recovery and
falling unemployment. They complained that the economy has continued to
sink and unemployment has kept rising-to a post-Depression high of 10.8
Cuba supplying troops-CIA
WASHINGTON- Cuba is believed to have sent 10,000 more troops to
Angola in recent months in response to an increase in South African military
attacks against that country, according to Central Intelligence Agency,
The CIA now believes Cuba has some 30,000 troops in Angola, although of-
ficials said that figure may not be precise because of the difficulty in ob-
taining reliable information.
The officials, who asked not to be identified, made the disclosure amid
signs that South Africa and Angola are trying to resolve their differences
over the Cuban troop presence in Angola.
Angolan and South African officials discussed the differences Wednesday'
in their first-ever face-to-face meeting. Neither side had any comment af-
terward, but the State Department called the meeting a "positive develop-
ment which could enhance prospects for a resolution of regional problems."
4 Syrians die in Tripoli battlea
BEIRUT, Lebanon- Moslem gunmen battling for control of the northern
city of Tripoli killed four Syrian soldiers in an ambush yesterday, and'
Moslem-Christian warfare in the central mountains left at least six dead,
police and radio reports said.
The newest flare-up in the sectarian fighting, which has threatened the
slow-moving effort to bring peace to Lebanon, came as newspaper reports
said U.S. Marine peacekeepers would expand their patrols to include an area
where Lebanese and Israeli troops clashed briefly Wednesday.
Police said street battles raged in Tripoli yesterday between members of
the pro-Syrian Alawite Moslem militia and Palestinian-backed Sunni'
Moslem gunmen, who have been fighting over control of the city.
Police said four people were killed and 41 wounded in the street battles,:
raising the toll from three days of fighting to 15 dead and 66 wounded.
The rightist Voice of Free Lebanon radio station said members of the all-
Sunni Popular Resistance Movement also ambushed a Syrian army truck in
Tripoli, killing four soldiers and wounding others.
