month's hijacking of an Indian Airlines jet despite
t role apparently played by a notorious Kashmiri
gTrilla group that has received backing from
Islamabad.
"We do not have evidence that the Pakistani
government was in any way involved in that
hijacking,' Clinton told a White House news con-
ference.
Nevertheless, the administration has called on
Pakistan to break its ties to Harkat

State Department spokesperson James Rubin
said a U.S. delegation that visited Islamabad last
week expressed Washington's concern about
Pakistan's "general support" for several
Kashmiri groups, including larkat
Moujahedeen.
Nevertheless, Rubin and White House spokesper-
son Joe Lockhart read identical statements saying
the administration has "no evidence that the govern-
ment of Pakistan had foreknowledge of, supported

regime, at least not unless additional damag-
ing information comes to light. One passenger
was killed during the weeklong drama that
began Dec. 24.
The Harkat Moujahedeen group, under a
previous name, Harkat Ansar, has been on the
State Department's list of terrorist organiza-
tions since 1997.
The government of India accused Pakistan of
planning the hijacking but has offered no proof.

Although the identity of the hijackers is not
known, their link to Harkat Moujahedeen seems
clear because they demanded the release of a
leader of the group, along with two other militants,
in exchange for freeing 155 hostages.
"We have been concerned for some time about
the fact that agencies of the Pakistani government
have provided general support to a number of
groups operating in Kashmir, including Harkat
Moujahedeen," Rubin said.

t.S. takeover of EMI
raises concern in Britain

One last look

i c

The Washington Post
LONDON -- Elvis was still king, Chuck
Berry still had rockin' pneumonia and American
pop stars dominated the music business on both
sides of the Atlantic. Then, in the spring of 1962.
Vcord studio on London's Abbey Road took a
r on a catchy little ditty called "Love Me
Do."
That first Beatles record was probably the
most important signing in the long history of
EMI Group, the biggest and oldest British
record company. The corporate history of EMI
- for Electric and Musical Industries Ltd. -
dates to the cylindrical gramophone records of
the J890s.
Its contributions to the industry include the
image (later borrowed by RCA) taken from the
ting "His Master's Voice," showing a dog
i ening at a gramophone. By the early '60s,
though, EMI badly needed "Help" to move
beyorrd "Monday."
Revitalized by the Fab Four, EMI signed up
other British acts, including the Rolling Stones,
David Bowie, the Spice Girls and Blur. Then it
wetglobal, and today it is a major world player,
with a roster of regular million-sellers ranging
from the Beastie Boys in the United States to the
Japanese pop group Dreams Come True.
*ow the last British record label will become
oneinore title on the long roster of companies
clustering around America Online Inc., the

Internet giant in the Washington suburb of Dulles,
Va. In yet another AOL coup, EMI agreed during
the weekend to merge its music business with
Warner Music Group, the big American record
company whose parent, Time Warner Inc., was
just acquired by AOL.
The transfer of vet another British corpora-
tion to U.S. hands -- just days after Citigroup
bought the London investment bank Schroders
_- prompted concern here. "U.S. takes over
Britain's last major record label" read the
front-page headline in Monday's Independent
newspaper.
There was evidence to support that point of
view. The new venture will be called "Warner EM I
Music" Its headquarters will be in New York. The
American partner is guaranteed a majority of seats
on the board, and Warner Music Group Chair
Roger Ames will run the show.
Both American and British executives respond-
ed defensively at a news conference here Monday
when asked about a U.S. takeover. "We still have a
famous British company," argued Eric Nicoli,
chair of EMI Group.
He noted that the London Stock Exchange will
still trade EMI shares, adding. "We're acutely
aware of our roots and traditions." Nicoli winced a
few minutes later, though, when Time Warner
Chairman Gerald Levin, addressing the same
news conference from New York, referred to EMI
as "our London arm."

Microsoft -
WASHINGTON (AP) - Signalhng
a potential division within ranks that
could complicate settlement talks and
the next important phase of the
Microsoft trial, some states active in
the case believe the Justide
Department's plan to break up one of
the world's most successful companies
may not be the best solution.
Although debate continues n
secret among the 19 state attorne
generals deciding what to recom-
mend about Microsoft Corp., there is
a risk the government might fail to
bring a unified proposal on sanctions
to U.S District Judge Thomas
Penfield Jackson. He previously told
government lawyers bluntly bto agree
among themselves before they pre-
sent in court any plan for sanctions.
"I would not like to have to deal
with divergent points of view,"
Jackson told them in a private meet-
ing in November.
Illustrating the difficulties in achiev-
ing such consensus, Ohio's attorney
general indicated she is leaning toward
a ban on some of Microsoft's behavior'
toward others in the technology indus
try rather than a forced restructuring of -
the software giant.
Calling the dilemma "the most diffi:
cult professional decision I ever go"
involved with," Ohio Attorney Genrat
Betty Montgomery told The Associated
Press that a breakup of Microsoft "has
never been on my top list."
"I have to tell you that my bias is
toward a conduct resolution, but again
it's too early to be specific,-
Montgomery said. "Quite frankly,.I
indicated to my staff when we started
this lawsuit that I was not looking out
for a structural solution as much as a
conduct solution"
