JERUSALEM Israeli sources
said Sunday that Israeli agents had
assassinated Palestine Liberation
Organization (PLO) official Khalil al
Wazir, the No. 2 man in the organ
ization who headed the uprising in
the occupied territories.
Prime Minister Yitzak Shamir
declined to comment.
The sources said the operation was
carried out jointly by the Mossad
intelligence service, the Israeli army
and an elite commmando unit. They
spoke on condition of anonymity.
They said it had been postponed
several times before Saturday.

his home in the Tunis suburb of La
Marsa by an eight-member squad.
PLO officials blamed Israel, saying
the killing was designed to demoralize
Palestinians and end PLO-directed
protests in the occupied West Bank
and Gaza Strip.
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres,
co-leader on the coalition govern
ment, said in an interview on Israeli
radio that he hoped al-Wazir's
assassination would not affect peace
Apparently referring to al-Wazir,
he added: "We have to uproot
violence as a . . . factor that delays
a political development. People who
use violence will in the end see the

Fatah geurrillas hijacked a bus and
killed three Israelis in southern
Israel's Negev desert last month.
Former intelligence officials and
Israeli newspapers openly compared
the assassination to Israel's April 1973
raid on PLO offices in Beirut in which
three top PLO officials were killed.

Reporters moved into tents erected

Contra trial may affect pardon
WASHINGTON The timing
of the Iran-contra criminal trial of

whether a pre-trial or post-trial
pardon if Reagan should decide
to take that course would be
more acceptable to Americans.
