three months to prepare an invasion, i
of FAA airport rules
WASHINGTON - A coalition of
firefighting groups and unions said last
week that many airport fire and rescue
organizations are seriously short of
equipment and staff because Federal
Aviation Administration rules are out-
The coalition said even the word "res-
cue" is a misnomer because the FAA
does not require airport firefighters to
be prepared to enter downed planes to
fight interior fires or to rescue passen-
"The FAA is the only standard-set-
ting body in the United States that
does not recognize victim rescue and
interior fire fighting as an integral
part of the firefighter's job descrip-
tion," said the report by the Coalition
for Airport and Airplane Passenger

"In reality, (FAA rules) instruct fire-

burning jet fuel for those fortunate pas-
sengers who can escape on their own,"
the report stated.

Palestinians seek U.S.
support for statehood
JERUSALEM - Palestinians want
a written assurance that the United
States will back Palestinian statehood
in exchange for a delay in its declara-
tion, a diplomat said yesterday.
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat has
sent his deputy, Mahmoud Abbas, to
Washington for another round of talks
with U.S. officials regarding the decla-
ration of an independent state.
The Clinton administration is seek-
ing a one-year extension of the Oslo
peace accords, scheduled to end May 4,
out of concern that a unilateral declara-
tion of statehood on that date would
sink the fragile peace process.
Hassan Abdul-Rahman, the
Palestine Liberation Organization's
Washington representative, told The
Associated Press that Abbas had met
with U.S. Mideast envoy Dennis Ross.
More meetings were expected once
Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat
arrived in Washington last night.
*Hale Auditorium is located at the U of M Business School, Hill and Tappan Streets
"The American position regarding
several issues will be sent in a letter to
President Arafat, the PLO diplomat
said. He said the United States is con-
sidering holding a three-way summit in
Washington in July - after Isr*
elects its next prime minister- to rein-
vigorate the peace process.
LONDON - Police scoured video
yesterday from closed-circuit TV secu-
rity cameras, searching for clues to a
bomb attack in a racially diverse neig
borhood of London.
Hospital officials said two men hurt
in the blast Saturday had severe eye
injuries, but refused to comment on TV
reports that both have been blinded per-
Fourteen of the 39 people injured
when the bomb exploded in a busy
shopping street in Brixton - mostly
people hit by nails and flying glass -
remained hospitalized yesterday.
