JERUSALEM (AP) - Cabinet
ministers endorsed Prime Minister
*Yitzhak Rabin's plans yesterday to
keep the occupied West Bank and
Gaza Strip sealed indefinitely and
sharply cut the Palestinian work
force in Israel.
Rabin believes a separation of the
two areas is vital to curb violence
and win support among Israelis for
future concessions in Middle East
The closure, imposed March 31
ufter a wave of Arab-Israeli attacks,
bars 1.8 million Palestinians from
entering Israel and dealt a harsh
economic blow to both sides.
The occupied territories were
sealed during most of the Persian
Gulf War, and have been shut
periodically during times of unrest.
Wages from 120,000 Palestinian
laborers in Israel account for half the
ncome of Gaza and one-third the
ncome of the West Bank. Israeli
employers, meanwhile, depend on
Arabs to fills many low-level jobs.
Yesterday, the Cabinet decided to
review the closure weekly and inject
more money into the territories to
compensate for the lost jobs.
In another development, aides to
Rabin said he would meet
lVednesday with President Hosni
ubarak of Egypt in the Egyptian
city of Ismailiya to try to work out
problems hindering the resumption
of peace talks, scheduled to restart
April 20 in Washington.
A key issue will be the participa-
tion of Palestinians, who pulled out
of the U.S.-sponsored talks after
Israel deported about 400 alleged
Muslim militants to south Lebanon
'On Saturday, Palestinian leader
Faisal Husseini said an Israeli
promise to return all deportees was
no longer a condition to resume
negotiations. The Palestinians have
not, however, announced they were
returning to the talks.
Palestinian peace negotiators,
addressing the closure of the
erritories, complained Israel
nilaterally decided issues that
should be negotiated in the
Washington talks on Palestinian
"Rabin is imposing his vision of
the transitional period regardless of
our views," Ghassan Khatib said.
Israel's hawkish government
opponents also oppose a long-term
closure, saying it is the first step
oward Palestinian independence.
And two left-wing ministers
voted against the Rabin plan in the
Cabinet's special session yesterday.
They said they back the idea of
separation, but feel more aid should
be given to the depressed Palestinian

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
(AP) - Two whites were burned to
death by a Black crowd and a third
had part of his tongue cut out despite
appeals for calm yesterday, a day
after the assassination of a popular
African National Congress (ANC)
The ANC, meanwhile, accused
security officials of ignoring re-
quests for special protection for the
slain activist, Chris Hani.
But the ANC said his killing
would not derail negotiations with
the government on ending apartheid.
A white man was arrested in Hani's
ANC President Nelson Mandela
and South African President F.W. de
Klerk appealed for calm in televised
addresses, but at least two attacks
The ANC accused police of firing
on a small memorial service for Hani
in the Black township of Soweto
near Johannesburg, killing one
Black. Police Maj. Henriette-Bester
denied it was a memorial service and
said officers fired on a crowd after
people began throwing stones and
shooting at them.
The three white men had driven
into Lwandli Black township outside
Cape Town to buy beer when their
two vehicles were stoned and set
afire by a crowd, police said. Police
said two were killed and one injured.
A fourth white man escaped.
While mob attacks on whites are
rare, police did not know whether
the attack was in reprisal for Hani's
At a news conference yesterday,
the ANC said Hani's death should
inspire political parties to work more
fervently for a peaceful end to
There were fears the slaying
could hurt negotiations between
Black and white groups. The talks,
which resumed this month, had col-
lapsed in May amid political vio-
Police arrested a white man hours
after Hani's killing and said yester-
day that a pistol found in his car was
the murder weapon.
They could not confirm newspa-
per reports the 40-year-old man,
Januzu Wallus, had links to neo-
Nazi groups and left Poland 10 years
ago to escape Communism. No
right-wing group has claimed links
with Wallus, who is expected to ap-
pear in court Tuesday.
Hani, 50, was chief of South
Africa's influential Communist
Party and a member of the ANC's
policy-making National Executive
Committee. He spent several years
directing the ANC's guerrilla war
against the white government before
its suspension in 1991 and escaped
at least three assassination attempts
De Klerk said Hani's killing may
have been aimed at sabotaging
Black-white negotiations on power
Marches outside Johannesburg
and Cape Town to protest Hani's
death drew a total of about 2,000
people and were peaceful. Protesters
in the townships of Crossroads and
Khayelitsha outside Cape Town set
up roadblocks of burning tires and
vehicles Saturday, and police said
they were stoned when they tried to
remove them Sunday. No injuries
Witnesses say Hani was shot at
close range by a man in a red car
who followed him into his driveway.
WASHINGTON (AP) - A new
company has turned Zo8 Baird's
name into a verb and is trying to
cash in on her troubles at tax time.

Not so surprising in the year
when Baird's troubled nomination
for attorney general drew attention
to a tax law the Internal Revenue
Service says millions of Americans
Baird withdrew her name from
consideration for attorney general
after admitting she didn't pay Social
Security taxes for her maid and
chauffeur, who weren't legal resi-
dents. All over the country there are
others like her who don't pay taxes
for housekeepers, baby sitters and
other domestic help, the IRS says.
The law Baird broke - which
dates back to 1950 - requires em-
ployers to pay Social Security and
Medicare taxes for any domestic
employee who earns more than $50
According to the Bureau of Labor
Statistics, 1.13 million people are
employed in private homes. But only
about 500,000 households file the
required tax forms each quarter.
That's only a fraction of the sev-
eral million people the agency
believes should be reporting.
Under the law, an employer who
pays a household worker more than
$50 per quarter must pay 7.65 per-
cent of the worker's wages in Social
Security and Medicare taxes; the
worker is liable for a matching
Holiday cease-fire in Srebrenica ignored limiting U.N. aid deliveries
Herzegovina (AP) - Cathedral bells
rang and candles of hope were lit,
but Easter Sunday brought little
respite in Bosnia's war as Serbs
hindered U.N. aid deliveries and a
truce in the east faltered.
NATO airmen spent the holiday
preparing to enforce a U.N.-imposed
ban on military flights over Bosnia.
The mission, beginning today, gives
pilots authority to shoot at violators.
Bosnian Serbs had offered a
cease-fire around the Muslim
enclave of Srebrenica, but advanced
on the battered town before the truce
took effect, U.N. officials said.
As the cease-fire deadline passed
Saturday, two mortar shells landed
near U.N. aid trucks being unloaded
and another five shells slammed into
a valley just outside the town, said
Cmdr. Barry Frewer, Sarajevo
spokesperson for U.N. peacekeepers.
No casualties were reported.
Frewer said Srebrenica was
relatively calm early yesterday, but
stressed that U.N. military observers
could not monitor outlying areas.
More than 20 local and nation-
wide truces have failed to end
Bosnia's war, which has left at least
134,000 people dead or missing
since majority Muslims and Croats
voted to break away from Serb-
dominated Yugoslavia last year.
'They have been very
tight, belligerent and
-- Cmdr. Barry Frewer
Serbs are outraged at the discov-
ery of ammunition aboard a U.N. aid
convoy headed for a Muslim-held
Sarajevo suburb, and by NATO
plans to enforce the no-fly zone.
Since the ammunition was
discovered Thursday, Frewer said,
Serbs had been increasingly
hindering U.N. aid deliveries. On
Saturday, they blocked a regular
U.N. shuttle service for supplies and
personnel between Sarajevo and
logistics headquarters in Kiseljak to
"They have been very tight,
belligerent and obstinate, making it
very difficult for our operations,"
In Sarajevo, about 1,000 ethnic
Croats gathered at dusk Saturday at
the Sacred Heart Cathedral for
Easter prayers. Cathedral bells rang
and people lit candles as a symbol of
hope and new life.
Archbishop Vinko Poljic,
spiritual leader of central Bosnia's
500,000 mainly Croat Roman
Catholics, preached a homily titled:
"Be not afraid."

On Saturday, Srebrenica
defenders blocked the evacuation of
2,000 refugees on open U.N. trucks,
saying several Muslims evacuated
last week were injured when Serbs
stoned their convoy.
Commanders also have blocked
at least two previous evacuations,
saying an exodus weakened the
Bosnia's Serbs want to annex
eastern Bosnia to other Serb-held
territories and Serbia proper to create
a "Greater Serbia."
They reject a U.N. peace plan
partitioning Bosnia in 10 provinces
because it places eastern Bosnia
under Muslim control and would not
let Serbs keep a vital supply corridor
between conquered lands in Bosnia
Momcilo Krajisnik, speaker of
the Bosnian Serbs' self-styled
parliament, said the breakaway
Serbian states in Croatia and Bosnia
were planning a joint assembly, the
Belgrade daily Politika reported.
Krajisnik said both self-declared
states would retain their presidents
but he suggested a joint government
of "New Serbia" be formed.

Karadzic on Saturday reasserted that
Serbs have a "right" to unite
