Ann Arbor being run in the public

In order to ease rising property
taxes the city should work through
the state government in Lansing,
Brater said. She added that she was
skeptical about implementing a city
income tax that would cost a million
dollars to administer.

British officials foil Iraqi
weapons smuggling attempt
LONDON - Customs officials said yesterday they foiled an attempt
to supply Iraq with 40 American-made devices for triggering nuclear
weapons, and they arrested five people after an 18-month investigation by
U.S. and British authorities.
The probe climaxed in a freight shed at London's Heathrow Airport as
an attempt was made to put the devices - which may have been dummies
- aboard an Iraqi Airways flight to Baghdad, British customs officials
Of those arrested in and around London, one was an Iraqi national who
was immediately served with a deportation order, authorities said.
Customs officials in London, speaking on condition of anonymity;
said the devices were capacitors, electrical components of the detonation
chain of a nuclear bomb.
Defense experts said it demonstrates Iraq's determination to become a
nuclear power, even at the risk of being caught violating Western bans o
the export of strategic high technology.
Arab group says Levin s
views biased by PAC money
WASHINGTON - Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., is one of Israel's top
supporters in Congress because he receives generous campaign donations
from pro-Israel groups, an Arab-American organizauon charged yesterday.
A spokesman for Levin denied the allegation, and said Levin bases his
positions on what he thinks is right and is not influenced by contribu-
The Arab American Institute issued a report that analyzed senators'
votes and other actions on Middle East issues. It said the 15 senators with
the most consistently pro-Israel record, including Levin, averaged more
than $102,000 in donations from pro-Israel political action committees in
the previous election cycle.
Levin received $178,688 from pro-Israel PACs for his 1984 re-election,
campaign, the report said. Common Cause, the public affairs group, re
ported this month that pro-Israel groups gave Levin $177,688 between
1983 and 1988. Levin is seeking a third term this year.
Missionary shot in Lebanon
RASHAYA FOUKHAR, Lebanon -- Extremist groups claimed re-
sponsibility yesterday for the slaying of an American missionary who was
shot to death in his south Lebanon home by masked intruders who burst
in as he prayed with his family.
The groups accused the victim, William Robinson, of trying to estab-
lish an Israeli settlement in south Lebanon, a predominantly Shiite
Moslem area. The Israeli government and Robinson's relatives in his
home state of Massachusetts denied it.
Israeli troops scoured their self-proclaimed security zone in south Le
banon for the killers, who entered Robinson's home in Rashaya Foukhar
on Tuesday night. The village of 4,000 is inside the security zone, about
eight miles northeast of Israel's border.
Lebanese security sources reported that the Israelis and their militia al-
lies raided houses and arrested an undisclosed number of people.
Rival Zulu factions clash in
S. African territoral dispute
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Rival Zulu factions battled with
guns, clubs and knives yesterday in Natal province, setting scores of
homes on fire and forcing hundreds of villagers to flee into the country-
Soldiers and police patrolled Natal in an effort to quell the violence,
which broke out Tuesday and has killed at least two people.
Police reported two deaths and 25 injuries since Tuesday but expected
the figures would rise. Local reporters, who did not want to be named,
said up to 14 people had been killed.
Army units and extra police were deployed after some 2,000 Zulus
supporting the Inkatha party went on rampage with guns and knives
against supporters of the rival United Democratic Front. Observers and
police say the violence was sparked by the stoning of Inkatha buses that
drove through UDF areas after a rally Sunday.
Senate cuts property taxes
LANSING - The Michigan Senate upped the property tax relief ante
yesterday by overwhelmingly passing Republican-sponsored legislation to
cut taxes by $667 million this year.
The legislation would reduce property assessments for school operating
taxes from the current 50 percent of cash value to 40 percent by 1992.
The state would make up the money lost to school districts.
People more than 65 years old would not have to pay any property
taxes for school operations.
The Senate rejected Democratic attempts to amend the package so the
wealthy would pay a larger burden of property taxes, and Republicans re-
fused to spell out how the tax relief would be funded.
The legislation, which would provide about 60 percent of its tax relief
for homeowners and 40 percent for businesses, passed in five bills on
votes of 38-0 and 37-0.
They now go to the House, which already has passed Blanchard's pro-
gram to tie the yearly increase in property tax assessments to inflation.
