JAKARTA, Indonesia Bowing to intense
international pressure, President B.J. Habibie said
yesterday night Indonesia will allow armed foreign
peacekeepers into East Timor to end a wave of
killing and destruction by pro-Indonesian militia-
men and his own soldiers and police.
The announcement paved the way for an
Australian-led peacekeeping force of up to 7,000
troops to begin operating swiftly in East Timor,
possibly within days.
U.S. officials said the force will likely include a
small U.S. contingent, mainly to help with commu-
nications, intelligence-gathering and logistics, par-
ticularly airlifting troops from participating

Indonesia's acceptance. But his national-security
adviser, Samuel Berger, cautioned that manv key
details remain to be settled., like the timing for
deploying the troop, their relationship with thou-
sands of Indonesian soldiers on the ground and the
composition of the new force.
"The devil's in the details here, " cqer told
reporters in Aucklandi. -There arc a lot of questions
that need to be addressd in the coming days."
In making his announcement, Hahibie conceded
that, despite a martial-law declaration six days ago.
his own military has be'n unable to control the vio-
lence that exploded in East Timor after an over-
whelming majority of its 800,000 residents voted
for independence in a UN.-sponsored referendum
That, he implied, was the reason Indonesia
reversed itself after days of refusing to heed
demands for an international pacekeeping force
from g overnmenIt around the worid.

the situation in Last Tinor," Hlabi bie sad in a
nationally televised address at Merdeka, the presi-
dential palace. "At the same time. they' have to reC-
ognize that there are limits to what more they could
achieve . .. They have done their utmast in a very
complex and complicated situation. under very diV
ficult psychological constraints.
labibie did not elaborate, but his military chief.
Gien. Wiranto, had earlier conceded that his soL
diers would not shoot the militiamen whom they
considered "brothers in arms."
"Too many people have lost their lives since the
beginning of the unrest, lost their homs and secu-
rity," H abibie declared. "We cannot wait any
longer. We have to stop the suffering.'

Gas stations see slight price increases
CAMARILLO, Calif Prices at the gas pumps jumped less than a penny in
the past 3 weeks, due largely to an increase in crude oil prices.an industry analyst
The national weighted average Friday, including all grades and taxes, was
SL.3178y up from SI .31 in the previous survey Aug. 20. said Trilby Lundberg, who
publi.hes the Lundberg Survey of 10,000 gas stations nationwide.
But the upward trend that marked gas prices in the summer may be comin
"With vacations ending and schools beginning, it's crude oil prices calling the
shots at the pump," she said. "if crude oil prices stay around the S23-a-barrel range
than fuel gasoline cuts can be expected."
The slight rise reflected a S2 increase in the price per barrel of crude oil to
523.55, Lundberg said.
Gasoline prices were kept in check nationwide thanks to a four-cent-a-gallon dip
in the West, which has started recovering from a gas shortage that hit the regioi in
the spring, Lundberg said.
Here's a breakdown of the individual price per gallon for self-service gas: regu-
lar unleaded gas in the past three weeks cost S 1.2653; mid-grade cost SI .3642,
premium gas cost S 1.4492.

North Korea halts
BERLIN - North Korea agreed yes-
terday to what amounts to a freeze in its
missile-testing program, clearing the
way for improved relations with the
United States and its key Asian allies,
Western officials said.
Senior U.S. and North Korean delega-
tions, headed by U.S. special envoy
Charles Kartman and Deputy Foreign
Minister Kim Gye Gwan of North Korea,
announced after five days of discussions
in Berlin that their countries have pledged
"to preserve a positive atmosphere con-
ducive to improved bilateral relations and
to peace and security in Northeast Asia
and the Asia-Pacific region."
Although North Korean officials said
nothing publicly to interpret the pledge,
Western diplomats familiar with the
talks said that, while it fell short of a
treaty-level commitment, North Korea
acknowledged that any further missile
tests would run counter to its promise
not to do anything to damage relations
with the United States. As a result, they
said, the accord seemed to go a long
way toward easing tensions created by
Pyongyang's plans to test the
Taepodong 11, an advanced and -lon -
range model of a missile that caused
alarms across the region when it was
test-fired over Japan a year ago.
