yesterday, Times reporter Richard
Lyons said he referred to a handout
given to reporters by Libyan Embassy
official Dr. Ali el-Houderi. The handout,
distributed because el-Houderi main-
tained "we have nothing to hide," in-
cluded profiles of the four Libyans that
listed Zbedi as a 34-year-old resident of
Ann Arbor with a wife and five
children.
LYONS SAID HE called the Univer-
sity Registrar yesterdayand was told
Zbedi is not enrolled in any program
and hasn't been for at least a year.
Lyons, who suggested that other aspec-
ts of the Libyan handout may also be
erro eous, added "It's very apparent
what's happening here."
The four Libyans have been linked to
an international campaign of terror
that has resulted in the recent murders
of four Libyan dissidents in London and
Rome. "By ordering the expulsions we
are seeking to deter the sort of violence .
that occurred in Europe from hap-
pening in this country," a senior State
Department official said.
The U.S. threatened yesterday to
close the Libyan Embassy, effectively
breaking diplomatic relations, unless
the four leave the country immediately
and the remaining Libyans registrar as
diplomats.
LYONS SAID the Qaddafi
organization-of which the four
Libyans are alleged to be mem-
bers-has set up terrorist operations
for the past five years aiding such
groups and leaders as the Palestine
Liberation Organization, the Irish
Republican Army, and Idi Amin. Ac-
cording to the Times, supporters of
Libya dictator Muammar Qaddafi have
threatened 3,000 or so Libyans, mostly

students, living in this country with
"extremination" unless they return
home immediately.
Jon Heise, director of the University
International Center, said yesterday,
however, he has heard no reports of
harassment of Libyans here.
The Libyans, who insist that their
embassy is a "people's bureau" and no
longer an embassy, deny State Depar-
tment charges that the four have taken
part in a campaign of intimidation.
However, the FBI has in recent weeks
been accumulting evidence that the
four have been involved with
harassment and intimidation of
Libyans in the U.S., according to State
Department officials. A spokesman at
the Ann Arbor FBI branch declined to
comment on the situation, while an
agent in the Detroit office said he
"hadn't heard about it."
FBI AGENTS and riot-equipped
police maintain their vigil begun
Tuesday night outside the embassy,
prepared the escort the four Libyans to
the airport for the first plane out of the
country if they leave the embassy
building.
A Justice. Department spokesman
said yesterday the FBI and the
Washington police had each deployed a
SWAT team around the building. There
was no indication, however, of any
decision to sesd the special weapons
and tactics officers into the building.
The remaining two American
diplomats in Libya were recalled last
week as a precaution when the current
confrontation began. Most of the U.S.
Embassy personnel were recalled in
December after a Libyan mob sacked
the grounds.

ting repression of popular democratic
movements.
The action was taken in separate
resolutions passed by the 32-
denomination, interfaith group's
governing board during its semi-annual
three day meeting.
It called upon the United States to
"guarantee that it would not intervene
directly or coverly to determine the
political fate of the Salvadorean
people" and urged it to "grasp the
historic moment and update and tran-
sform its traditional policy in Central
America by seeking to respond
positively to the popular organizations
emerging in El Salvador."
It said the U.S. government should
reallocate the recently approved $5.7
million aid package to El Salvador to
medical, economic, and social
assistance programs and the
distribution of the funds should be con-
trolled by civilian and international
agencies in El Salvador.
The resolution, alleging that
repression has increased since the
current junta took over and that the
repression "responds to an impetus
coming in part from the highest level of
government," urged an investigation
by the InterArnerican Commissiorr on
Human Rights of the Orgaii4to' of
A ati cRanStates.
