Hurricane Gloria heads east
MANTEO, N.C. - Hurricane Gloria, one of the most powerful storms
ever recorded in the open Atlantic, spared the Bahama and headed for
the East Coast on Wednesday as it spun across the sea with 135 mph
Gloria was threatening the Carolinas, and a hurricane watch was
posted from South Carolina to Virginia, including North Carolina's
vulnerable barrier islands, where camples began evacuating.
Although the storm, which ahd packed 1501' mph winds, weakened last
night, emergency plans were drafted and residents were warned to keep
track of Gloria in other coastal areas.
Before weakening, the 300-mile-wide hurricane had been ranked as a
"borderline" Category 5 storm, capable of catastrophic damage. The last
time a storm anywhere near the strength of Gloria hit the East Coast, it
killed 600 people in New England in 1938.
"If it goes into the Carolinas, this could be a very terrible storm," said
Neil Frank, director of the National Hurricane Center in Coral Gables,
Even if Gloria's winds weaken further before landfall, which could
come by Friday at a site yet uncertain, it might attain such a fast forward
speed that it could be just as dangerous because there would be less time
to evacuate, Frank said.
Nine KKK members indicted
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A federal grand jury indicted nine Ku Klux Klan
members yesterday on charges of intimidating black and white couples
by shooting into homes and burning crosses in yards.
FBI agents quickly arrested four of the suspects listed in the 20-count
indictment returned in U.S. District Court in Asheville.
Those arrested included Jerry Suits, Titan or leader of the White
Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in Iredell Country, and his wife, Mary Suits,
Queen Kleagle or leader of the women's unit of the county Klan.
The conspiracy count charged the defendants with plotting "to threaten
and intimidate several black and white residents of the two counties
because of their interracial cohabitation or fraternization."
Assistant Attorney General William Reynolds, head of the Justice
Department's Civil Rights Division, said in Washington that more than
150 people, including at least 84 klan members, have been prosecuted for
such violence since 1979.
14 injured in Rome blast
ROME - A powerful bomb hidden in a sports bag exploded at a British
Airways office yesterday and injured 14 people, four of them seriously,
police said. Authorities said a 16-year-old Palestinian caught fleeing the
scene confessed to the bombing.
Domenico Sica, a leading anti-terrorist judge, said the suspect had
identified himself as Hasan Aatab, born in Beirut's Shatila refugee camp.
Sica said Aatab confessed he had thrown the bomb, and that he was
aided by a second man. Witnesses had told police a young man had
thrown the explosive-laden bag through the door of the British Airways.
Sica said Aatab had told authorities he belonged to the Revolutionary
Organization of Socialist Moslems, the group that claimed responsibility
for a terrorist attack 10 days ago in the same fashionable Via Veneto
area, center of Rome's night life in the 1950s.
French leader blames former
officials for Greenpeace snking
PARIS - Prime Minister Laurent Fabius yesterday denied he knew in
advance of the secret service's plan to sink the Greenpeace ship Rainbow
Warrior in New Zealand and blamed the attack on the ousted defense
minister and intelligence chief.
Fabius admitted Sunday for the first time that French agents bombed
the environmentalist group's ship and covered up their activities from an
Fabius said it was difficult to determine who specifically gave the order
to sink the ship July 10 at its berth in Auckland, New Zealand, because
"there was no written order."
He said he questioned former Defense Minister Charles Hernu and
secret service chief Adm. Pierre Lacoste yesterday afternoon.
"My conviction is that both of them acted under the impulse of their
own idea of what was in the interest of our country," he said. "My convic-
tion is that it is at their level where the responsibility lies."
Lacoste was fired last week for refusing to answer questions about the
sinking, and Hernu, who had ultimate responsibility for the secret ser-
Mexico to study building codes
MEXICO CITY - Rescuers dug toward signs of life yesterday and
President Miguel de la Madrid began a review of city building codes. He
said demolition would proceed cautiously to avoid endangering buried
Mayor Ramon Aguirre's office raised its estimate of the death toll in
Mexico City from the two great earthquakes last Thursday and Friday to
3,500. National government officials have said the total could go to 5,000,
and that about 100 people were killed outside the capital.
About 1,500 people were believed trapped in the wreckage, some
perhaps still alive. Aguirre's office said 11,700 people were injured, of
whom 1,700 remained hospitalized.
De la Madrid started the review of the building codes at a meeting with
city officials yesterday. It will include land use, building heights,
allowable population density and construction standards.
Communications, transportation and education were creeping back to
normal yesterday, but city officials said at least 2 million people still
were without drinking water. Most are in the southern part of this huge
urban sprawl of 18 million people.
U.S. Ambassador John Gavin said late Tuesday that the United States
was delivering 800 water tanks of 3,000-gallon capacity, vehicles to carry
them, and water purification tablets.
