crime in the United States rose five
percent last year while so-called
serious property crimes such as
burglary and theft were up only two
percent, according to figures released
yesterday by FBI Director William
S. Sessions.
Overall, the three percent increase
in serious crimes from 1988 to 1989
was the same as the previous year,
and compares with a two percent rise
in 1987, a six percent jump in 1986
and a five percent rise in 1985, the
FBI said.
Cities with populations over
50,000 - places where
approximately 80.9 million people
live - showed a three percent
increase in serious crimes.
But in Detroit, the nation's
seventh-largest city, serious crimes
dropped by 4.2 percent, from
131,334 in 1988 to 125,687 last
year. Serious crimes dropped by
about nine percent in Ann Arbor

during that period, from a total of
9,518 to 8,641.
Flint's total dropped 7.3 percent,
from 21,239 to 19,680 crimes last
year. Crimes edged up less than one
percent in Grand Rapids, from
15,637 in 1988 to 15, 736 the next
year. Lansing's rate dipped 3.9
percent , from 10,506 to 10,089.
In Livonia, the FBI index rose
about 4.2 percent, from 4,684 to
4,862. Warren saw a 1.9 increase
between 1988 and 1989, from 9,443
to 9,623.
National, suburban and rural areas
as well as cities outside metropolitan
areas - places where some 132.2
million people live - had a slightly
smaller two percent increase.
The numbers reflect reports to
police of incidents of murder, motor
vehicle theft and arson.
Violent crime increased five
percent, while property crime in-
creased two percent, the FBI

Among violent crimes, robbery
increased seven percent, murder was
up four percent; incidents of
aggressive assault climbed five per-
cent forcible rape rose one percent.
In the property crime category,
motor vehicle thefts jumped nine
percent and instances of larceny or
theft were up two percent. But
burglary and arson both declined two

percent - the national average - in
cities with fewer than 10,000 people

After bloodshed, Nepali king'

lifts ban o
KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) -
King Birendra announced yesterday
the establishment of a multi-party
system and the lifting of a 29-year-
old ban on political parties follow-
ing the bloodiest day in Nepal's
modern history.
The stunning announcement was
carried on state-run television and
preceded by several hours of talks be-
tween opposition leaders and the
Harvard-educated monarch.

of political
"We talked with the king for an
hour at the royal palace and the talks
were very, very cordial," said Kir-
shna Prasad Bhattrai, a leader of the
Nepal Congress Party, which had
been banned for the last 29 years.
The decision came after talks be-
tween the new Prime Minister Lok-
endra Bahudur Chand, a relative
moderate, and opposition leaders on
Saturday and yesterday. Chand was
given his job last week after hard-

line Prime Minister Marich Man
Shrestha resigned.
The kingdom's only experiment
with Western-style democracy lasted
less than two years and was halted in
1981 when Birendra's father, King
Mahendra, dismissed the Nepali
Congress government, accusing it of
corruption and inefficiency.
Violence flared Friday during a
general strike called by banned polit-
ical groups.
