FAA warns airlines of possible hijack
LONDON - The Federal Aviation Administration has warned U.S.
airliners of a possible hijack attempt by Palestinian terrorists in Europe
over the Easter weekend, the U.S. Embassy confirmed today.
However, U.S. Embassy and White House officials denied a report in
the tabloid Daily Express that U.S. diplomats and military personnel had
been notified of the warning but it was being withheld from the public at
large - as was the case with a warning prior to the bombing of Pan Am
The White House press secretary, Marlin Fitzwater, said the warning
was issued March 16 and that it was "similar to many, many similar
kinds of information and security bulletins that go out."
The Bush administration was clearly unhappy the warning had leaked
out in a front-page newspaper.
Arafat: talks with U.S. were positive
TUNIS, Tunisia - Yasser Arafat said yesterday that the second formal
meeting between U.S. and PLO representatives was positive and reflected
the desire of both sides to make thedialogue a success.
Arafat described the content of the meeting between U.S. Ambassador
Robert Pelletreau and Yasser Abed-Rabbo of the PLO executive
committee as "positive and serious," but gave few details of the
Pelletreau and Abed-Rabbo met for 4-1/2 hours at the Tunisian
government's Dar el Maghreibia guest house, with two senior advisers
present on each side. The ambassador would not talk about the meeting
and referred all inquies to the State Department.
It was the second formal meeting since talks began in december, after
Arfat publicly renounced terrorism and recognized Israel's right to exist.
There was no indicatio whether a third meeting was scheduled, but the
PLO chief's mood suggested the dialogue will continue.
Rape victims may get funding for
abortions by state crime program
LANSING - Women who become pregnant as a result of rape still
can get state - paid abortions through the crime victims fund, despite a
new law that ended most publicly funded abortions, a state official says.
Michael Fullwood, administrator of the Crime Victims Compensation
Fund, said Wednesday the program wasn't affected by the voter -
Fulwood said bout 9 percent of the claims received by the fund in 1987
fiscal year were filed by sexual assault victims.
In the 1987 fiscal year, the fund paid out $2.6 million in direct
benefits, of which $1.95 million came from the state general fund and the
balance from a crime victim's program of the U.S. Department of Justice.
Fullwood said he was surprised the issue was not raised sooner, but he
hopes there won't be legislative efforts to stop the fund from paying for
Blanchard unveils pollution plan
EAST LANSING - A plan to expand efforts to identify and reduce
airborne toxic substances was announced yesterday by Gov. James
Blanchard, who said such pollution poses an increasing threat to human
health and the Great Lakes.
Blanchard said he' 11 ask the Legislature to approve an initial
appropriation of $356, 200 to identify the source of airborne toxic
chemicals, assess their effects, and identify ways to control the source of
More than 300 toxic "substances of concern" have been identified in
the Great Lakes and more than half of all new toxic substances entering
the lakes are believed to be from airborne sources, Blanchard said.
The proposal came a day after the federal government put out a study
showing that American industry released 2.4 billion pounds of toxic
substances into the area in 1987, including 106 million pounds in
Blanchard issued the proposal at the Governor's Conference on Water.
Fawn Hall weeps on witness stand
WASHINGTON (AP) - A weeping Fawn Hall praised former boss
North yesterday as an inspirational, tireless, and selfless man and said
their wholesale shredding of Iran- Contra documents "was no big deal."
Alternatively crying and spitting back sharp responses, Miss. Hall
twice appeared unable to go on with her testimony at North's trial;
causing impromptu recesses. Her sympathies throughout were obviously
with North, though she hardly ever looked at him.
She called North's firing by then President Reagan on Nov. 25, 1986;
unfair. "I was very angry."
Miss. Hall who was North's secretary at the National Security Council
for nearly four years, admitted that when attorney general's investigators
were closing in on Nov. 21. 1986, she altered documents to soften
recorded versions of North's involvement with the Nicaraguan Contras.
She also said she helped him in what has been called "a shredding party"
of Iran- Contra documents.
