political and diplomatic fronts yesterday, with critics calling her a new
dictator and the United States urging intervention in a strike against its

Responding to attacks on Aquino from members of deposed President
Ferdinand Marcos' crippled political party the New Society Movement,
Executive Secretary Joker Arroyo said the critics were "still receiving
instructions from Marcos," who is living in exile in Hawaii.
The political castigation from former Marcos allies came one day after
Aquino abolished the National Assembly, which had been controlled by
members of Marcos' party, and claimed sweeping powers to legislate un-
til a new permanent constitution is written and ratified.
Violence in Beirut kills 11
BEIRUT, Lebanon - A car bomb turned a crowded street into an in-
ferno and another bomb gutted an apartment in Christian East Beirut
yesterday as rival artillery men pounded the capital and its suburbs. At
least 11 people died and more than 100 were injured.
Police said the first explosion that injured six people- including a
woman and her 4-year-old child- and the second blast that killed eight
people and wounded about 80 others were aimed at offices of a Christian
political party loyal to President Amin Gemayel.
There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the bombings
that came as soldiers loyal to Gemayel and pro-Syrian militias turned
their heavy guns on the capital and a string of nearby villages, killing
three people and wounding 28.
The bombings were believed to be the latest in a campaign that began
in late January after Gemayel refused to endorse a Syrian-mediated
peace agreement between Lebanon's three main warring Christian and
Police kill 25 in South Africa
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Police said yesterday they shot and
killed 25 blacks in 24 hours in battling unrest across South Africa, and
reported the deaths of three others in black-on-black attacks.
Police in the black homeland of Bophuthatswana said 11 people were
killed and scores were injured when police opened fire with shotguns and
rifles at a meeting with 5,000 people that had been called to smooth over
civilian complaints of police brutality.
The district police commander said the crowd began throwing gasoline
bombs and stones, and police fired in self-defense.
Residents said they believed as many as 100 people were injured when
police fired rifles and shotguns during the meeting on a soccer field in
Winterveld. They said more than 1,000 were taken into custody.
Elsewhere, police said they shot dead nine blacks among a crowd of 100
who attacked a liquor store with rocks and gasoline bombs at 2 a.m. in
Kwazakele township near Port Elizabeth.
Police said they killed two other blacks in cKwazakele, two in the
crossroads shanty city near Cape Twon and one in Kagiso township near
Johannesburg - all during stone-throwing and firebomb outbreaks late
Stevenson rejects Dem. ticket
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - Adlai Stevenson is leaning toward a third-party
bid to revive his gubernatorial campaign after two backers of extremist
Lyndon LaRouche scored upsets in the Democratic primary, an aide said
In the March 18 Illinois primary, LaRouche candidates defeated
Democratic candidates for lieutenant governor and secretary of state
who had anticipated easy victories.
That forced Democratic gubernatorial candidate Adlai Stevenson to
renounce his ticket, saying he won't run as regular Democrat with a

LaRouche candidates from the ballot, including checking to see if they
have proper party registration.
Remains of three shuttle
victims identified, say families
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - The families of at least three Challenger
astronauts say remains of their loved ones have been identified and the
wife of the shuttle commander said yesterday she hopes for a memorial
service at Arlington National Cemetery.
However, NASA has repeatedly stated it will have no comment on the
crew cabin recovery operation or the identification of the seven
astronauts until all remains have been identified and all debris from the
crew compartment has been recovered.
But June Scobee, wife of Challenger commander Francis "Dick"
Scobee, said in a telephone interview yesterday from her home near
Houston that she had been informed by NASA that her husband's remains
had been identified.
The shuttle salvage fleet was delayed for the sixth day in a row Wed-
nesday by high winds at sea, including the USS Preserver, the Navy
vessel that has made five trips to the crash shite of Challenger's crew
cabin to recover wreckage and remains of the seven astronauts.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Im-
migration officials yesterday un-
veled a new tool to help keep
terrorists, drug smugglers and other
undesirables from entering the coun-
try - a computer system that gives
front-line officers access to nearly 60
million constantly revised files.
The system will replace a cumber-
some book used at ports of entry that
names 40,000 inadmissible aliens or
people wanted by federal law enfor-
cement agencies and takes six weeks
"Now, it's just a matter of minutes
from the time we receive information
on a person destined for the United
to keep un

the system," said Richard Norton, the

Service associate commissioner for
THE FIRST terminals of the
National Automated Immigration
Lookout System, or NAILS, went on

"What it means to us is an area of

INS director for New Jersey, said at a
Puleo said terminals should be in-
desirables out of U.S.
stalled by October at the nation's
major points of entry - airports, bor-
der crossings and sea ports.
Originally, the deadline was three
years from now, said Puleo.
"The reason for that isbvery ob-
vious. We have some problems we
have to face with the potential for
terrorists coming into the United
States," said Norton.
He said NAILS systems will soon be
in place at New York's John F. Ken-

producers who find a well-known Nazi
fugitive performing in a South
American nightclub. The producers

"It's about how the media takes a
historical event and, in order to com-
mercialize it, sensationalize and
recreate it, so that what really hap-
pened no longer exists," Schulman
Even though "Angel" explores the
sensitive subject of the Holocaust,
Schulman said he thinks similar sen-
sationalism happens all the time.
"This phenomena is alway hap-
pening with historical events on TV,"
he said. "It's all in order to satisfy
people's need for violence, brutality,
and entertainment. With the docu-
drama, people are taking artistic
liberties with history so people's per-
ception of history becomes something
created five minutes ago."
