Israeli jets down Syrian
jet in third bomb raid
BEIRUT-Israeli jets downed a Syrian jet yesterday during bombing
raids against Palestinian guerrilla strongholds south of Beirut, the Israeli
military command said.
It was the third Israeli raid in southern Lebanon in five days.
The Israeli command did not provide details of the attack, but Lebanese
newsmen reported by telephone from Sidon, 25 miles south of Beirut, that
Syrian jets clashed over the city with Israeli forces.
All Israeli aircraft returned safely, the Israeli command said. It said the
Syrian plane was shot down because it "attempted to interfere" with the
Israeli aircraft.
Protestors hurl acid bombs;
new hunger striker named
BELFAST, Northern Ireland-Catholic protesters hurled more than 100
acid bombs at security forces firing plastic bullets and the Irish Republican
Army named a new hunger striker yesterday.
Matt Devlin, 31, will begin his fast today, the day the IRA conducts a
military style funeral for Martin Hurson who died Monday on the 46th day of
his fast.
Police said five officers were wounded in the early morning violence
triggered by Hurson's death Monday on the 45th day of his fast in the Maze
Prison.
Aerial pesticide battle
launched against fruit fly
SAN JOSE, Calif-Launching a disputed aerial battle against the crop-
destroying Mediterranean fruit fly, agriculture workers sprayed 100 gallons
of pesticide from a helicopter early yesterday over nine square miles of a
residential area.
A mechanical problem forced an early halt to the spraying, but officials
called it "a successful mission" and said they would use two to four helicop-
ters early today to spray 45 square miles in the mostly affluent Santa Clara
Valley south of San Francisco.
Groups of protesters stood in the drop zone as the helicopter sprayed
overhead. Those who ventured outside into the spray said they could neither
feel nor see it.
Meanwhile, at least eight Southern states yesterday decided to put up
highway blockades next week against fruits and vegetables from California
counties affected by the Mediterranean fruit fly, said Texas Agriculture
Commissioner Reagan Brown.
The blockades will go up Monday in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida,
Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Texas.
San Jose workers end strike
SAN JOSE, Calif-More than 1,500 municipal workers returned to work
yesterday, ending a historic nine-day strike seeking equal pay for women
doing work comparable to that performed by men.
"The workers feel every day spent on strike was worth the sacrifice," said
Mike Ferrero, spokesman for the American Federation of State, County and
Municipal workers.
Both sifdes seemed pleased with the settlement in the fast growing city,
which has been called "the feminist capital of the world" by its woman
mayor and is located in the heart of the computer industry's Silicon Valley.
The two-year pact calls for $1.5 million for correcting pay disparities,
Ferraro said.
The contract, which covers 2,000 city workers, was ratified by a vote of 295-
27.
Dade County detectives
face racketeering charges
MIAMI-Nine former Dade County detectives were indicted yesterday on
charges of narcotics racketeering after a two-year investigation of drug
corruption involving reputed cocaine kingpin Mario Escandar, authorities
said.
The federal indictment charged the policemen with multiple counts of
racketeering, narcotics trafficking, bribery, and stealing drugs from the
scene of a crime.
So far, one-third of the detectives who were assigned to Dade County's
homicide unit in 1979 have been under investigation in what officials call the
most significant case of police corruption in the department's history.
The charges stem from some of the officers' alleged ties to Escandar,
described by U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman Con
Dougherty as "someone we certainly have considered as a major cocaine
trafficker."
