Violence in South Africa
causes U.N. deliberation
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
(UPI) - Security forces who have
arrested 795 people under a five-
day state of emergency opened fire
on a crowd of 4,000 stone-throwing
black mourners, killing four of
them and wounding 16 others,
police said yesterday.
In New York, the U.N. Security
Council scheduled an urgent
meeting to consider requests by
France that U.N. members
suspend investments in South
Africa and prohibit nuclear
agreements to protest the gover-
nment's policies of apartheid, or
racial segregation, and the state of
France Wednesday recalled its
South African ambassador and
suspended new investments to the
country in protest of President
Pieter Botha's decision to impose
the state of emergency Sunday.
Washington's response was
muted, White House spokesman
Larry Speakes said the ad-
ministration is reviewing the
situaiton in South Africa," but is
not conducting "a wholesale
review of our policy."
West Germany, opposition par-
ties urged the government to im-
pose sanctions against South
Africa. But a Foreign Ministry
spokesman said West Germany
would prefer to act in concert with
other Western European nations.
In the black township of
Daveyton, 25 miles east of Johan-
nesburg, soldiers and police armed
with shotguns and rifles fired on
mourners leaving a funeral late
Wednesday. The crowd was
stoning an army patrol and had in-
jured one soldier, police said.
A spokesman said "a large mob
stoned an army patrol," injuring
"A police patrol arrived on the
scene and assisted in dispersing
the mob with shotgun and rifle
fire," he said. "Two black males
and two black females were fatally
wounded and 13 black males and
three black females were woun-
Police said a 16-year-old youth
was shot by a soldier in Cape

less than 24 hours.
