NEW YORK (AP) - A Palestinian
man who came to the country last
Christmas Eve opened fire into a crowd
of tourists on the observation deck of
the Empire State Building yesterday,
killing one person and wounding six
others before fatally shooting himself
in the head.
Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said the
gunman carried a passport that identi-
fied him as 69-year-old Ali Abu Kamal,
a Palestinian from Ramallah, on Israel's
West Bank, who entered the United
States on Christmas Eve, 1996.
Dozens of people - many of them
foreign tourists - fled in panic toward
the stairways and elevators as Abu
Kamal sprayed bullets around the large,
windowed room that opens onto the
observation deck. A baby and toddler
were knocked from their parents' arms
in the panic.
"I've never seen so much blood in my
life," said Belgian businessman Stef
Nys, who said he saw the man shoot
himself and fall, his dentures popping
loose. "The most scary part was when
people started to panic."
The man muttered something about
Egypt seconds before he began shooting
at about 5 p.m. on the 86th floor obser-
vation deck of one of the world's best-
known tourist sites, authorities said.
Police weren't sure of the signifi-
cance of his remarks about Egypt.
Abu Kamal flew to New York last
Christmas Eve and bought a .380 cal-
iber semi-automatic pistol in Florida at
the end of January, Giuliani said.
A 27-year-old musician from
Denmark was killed, Giuliani said.
Anohert 27-year-old man was shot in
the head, while two other men were
shot in the shoulder, a man was shot in
the leg. A 44-year-old French man and
his 36-year-old wife were both shot in
the buttocks. The victims were from
Argentina, Switzerland, Connecticut and
New York City, Giuliani said. Four
women and the two young children were
hurt in the crowd.
"I'd been out there about one minute
when I heard what I thought to be fire-
crackers," said David Robinson, a
tourist from England. "Then everyone
A French family, Jean-Luec Will, his
wife, Catherine, and two sons, 10 and
13, said they had just arrived at the
Empire State Building on the second
day of a trip to New York.
"I heard a loud popping noise," Will
said. "I thought at first it was little child
playing with fireworks. There was one
shot, then two or three seconds passed
then three shots, pop, pop, pop."
Gerard Guntner of Jersey City, N.J.,
said he tried to help a man with a bullet
wound in the head on the deck by
cradling his head in towels.
"He was bleeding profusely. He was
coughing blood. I took the towels and
wrapped them around his head. I just
said, 'Hang in there."' Guntner said.
"I've never seen anything like this in

Anti-drug aid to Mexico may contin e
WASHINGTON - Secretary of State Madeleine Albright
opened the possibility yesterday'that the administration could .

narcotics programs despite flaws in that country's drug-fight-
President Clinton must decide by March 1 whether Mexico
deserves re-certification and further aid for attacking drugs, a
decision complicated by the arrest of the Mexican general in
charge of the campaign.
Albright, interviewed from Tokyo on ABC's "This Week,"
said charges that Gen. Jesus Gutierrez Rebollo, the head of Clinton
Mexico's drug program, was taking money from Mexican C
drug smugglers were very serious. "That does make the glass half-empty she
On the other hand, she said, President Ernesto Zedillo's quick action in arresting
Gutierrez "makes the glass half-full."

the arrest of the general was "an indication of how firmly President Zedillo is cc
mitted to fighting what is a very serious problem."

cloned for first time
Researchers for the first time have
cloned an adult mammal, a controver-
sial feat that could presage the ability to
clone human beings.
The startling achievement, long
thought to be biologically impossible,
was accomplished with sheep, the first
of which, named Dolly, was born in
July in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Nine cloned lambs have been born so
far, each an identical genetic "twin" of
the parent from which it was cloned. In
theory, the same technique could be used
to make unlimited copies of any single
adult animal, the researchers said.
The Scottish scientists who conducted
the work said their goal was not to clone
humans, but to create large herds of spe-
cially engineered farm animals -
including some that would produce
human medicines in their milk and others
that would contain "humanized" organs
suitable for transplantation into people.
Herds of cloned animals custom-
made to have human diseases could also
prove useful in the search for cures for
those human ills, they said. Eventually,
for example, barns filled with identical
sheep all suffering from cystic fibrosis
could replace the cages full of mice that
are now the workhorses of such
research, allowing testing of new drugs
on animals whose lungs resemble
pie's much more than mouse lungs d
Foster not murdered

Foster was not murdered and there, was
no cover-up in his death, the Los
Angeles Times reported yesterday. 0

the third investigation of Foster's death
from a gunshot wound 3 1/2 years ago..
"It is accurate and fulsome, and I

unidentified source told the paper..a
"It puts the lie to that bunch of auts
out there spinning conspiracy theories
and talking about murder and cover-
ups," said the source, whose affiljati n

China prepares to
BEIJING - Police blockaded a
cemetery for revolutionary heroes yes-
terday, keeping back hundreds of curi-
ous Chinese while soldiers made final
preparations for the nation's farewell to
Deng is to be cremated today, hours
before U.S. Secretary of State
Madeleine Albright arrives in Beijing
on the last stop of a nine-country
around-the-world trek, sources at state-
run TV said.
Eulogies praising Deng's exploits
and his economic reforms, which
raised tens of millions of Chinese from
poverty, gushed yesterday from govern-
ment television and media.
Soldiers, meanwhile, solemnly
rehearsed, carrying an empty, see-
through bier at the cemetery for
Communist veterans where Deng is to
be cremated in Babaoshan, a neighbor-
hood in western Beijing.
Police blocked a side road to the
cemetery and kept back crowds of
about 200 people from its front gate,
where a flag flew at half-staff. At one
point, a stream of about eight black
limousines sped out of the cemetery.
Deng died Wednesday at age 92
family asked that his ashes be scattored
at sea after a memorial tomorrow,
which 10,000 people will attend.
