Khomeini: Carter
sounds like an empty
drum on Iran stance

From UPl and AP
TEHRAN,-Iran-Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini said yesterday that
President Carter sounds "like an empty
drum" when he speaks about Iran and
another influential member of the
regime came out in favor of trying the
American hostages as spies.
Minister of State Dariush Foruhar,
an influential member of the gover-
nment and a close aide of Khomeini's,
said the hostages should be tried as
spies without delay. Those found in-
nocent should be "immediately
released," he said, but those found
guilty "must be punished."
AS KHOMEINI delivered his second
major speech in two days, instructing
Iranians on how he wants to carry out
their revolution, Foreign Minister
Sadegh Ghotbzadeh went to Oslo, Nor-
way, to discuss the 221-day-old hostage
crisis with members of the Socialist In-
At the United Nations, American of-
ficials sid the United States is "actively
considering" asking the Security Coun-
cil to pass another resolution ordering
Iran to free the hostages.
In other developments, Kurdish
rebels blew up a major highway bridge
and an armed group fired a rocket that
set fire to an oil depot as renewed
violence broke out in western Iran,
reports said yesterday.
Minister Ayatollah Mohd Reza Mah-
davi reported "a large number" of
people have been killed in recent
clashes between Iranian army troops
and Kurdish groups in the nation's
western sector.
Kurdish spokesman Jalil Ghadani
said the Irianian army and air force.
had bombed "defenseless" Kurdish
villages Monday and Tuesday. He said
the air force dropped a bomb by

mistake on army troops Tuesday,
killing at least 80 soldiers.
Meanwhile, in Pa'ris, former U.S. At-
torney General Ramsey Clark charged
yesterday that President Carter .was
"dragging politics" into the legal
process by asserting he should be
punished for defying the ban on travel
to Iran.
Clark, underinvestigation on charges
that carry penalties of up to 10 years in
jail and $50,000 in fines, denounced the
presidential travel ban as a bid to limit
Carter told reporters aboard Air For-
ce 1 Tuesday that he favored
prosecution of Clark. "My inclination is
to see the law carried out and Clark
should be punished," he said.
Reached at his Paris hotel, Clark in-
dicated the president's statements
could be prejudicial if charges should
be filed.
"I feel sad that Carter may want to
prosecute," he said. "The president
doesn't understand the rule of law. He
is trying to politicize it.
"The Department of Justice should
review the facts," the former attorney
general added. "Carter is dragging
politics into this."
Clark, one of the earliest supporters
of the Iranian revolutionaries who over-
threw the shah, is in Paris on a private
visit. He currently plans to return to the
United States Saturday.
