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 efforts. 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 father and to all those who miss me." The message appeared to be a recording.

NBC television said Shamir, Peres and Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin approved the assassination after 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. They also noted Israel, not rival PLO factions or Arab regimes, had the ability to mount such a sophis ticated operation 1,500 miles from its shores. The 1973 slaying was aimed at Ali Hassan Salameh, known as Abu were released and additional hijackers reportedly boarded the plane. The jet then went to Larnaca, Cyprus, where the gunmen killed two passengers and released 13. On Tuesday night, it arrived in Algiers and on Friday the hijackers released an ailing hostage.

The sky over the massacre scene was black with vultures. Hyenas and other wild animals ravaged the bodies of the victims, said the Sunday Nation, an independent newspaper. Laban Kitele, a minister of state in the office of the president, said police tracked and killed about 40 of the 50 rustlers in a search aided by recent heavy rains in the district. The rest escaped across the border to Sudan. Kitele said in a statement that the attackers were a well-armed "terror gang" of Sudanese from the Toposas tribe and Ndongiros from Ethiopia.

Three Israelis involved in the 1973 raid now hold senior security positions. Israeli experts say al-Wazir was responsible for a list of bloody attacks such as the 1975 takeover of the Savoy Hotel in Tel Aviv in which 1 1 hostages were slain and a March 1978 bus hijacking in which 33 Israelis were killed and 82 wounded. and televison reporters from the section of the VIP lounge where they had been staying for nearly a week. Reporters moved into tents erected by Algerian security guards on the lawn near the lounge. At about the same time, Algerian police, armed with pistols, took up position on the roof of the terminal building facing the plane. It was not clear why they had been dispatched. One official, who refused to be identified by name, said the lounge was needed for Arab ambassadors expected to come to the airport for a possible expansion of the negotiations. massacre border town of Lokichoggio on Wednesday. The semi-arid district, whose mountains and rugged valleys make it inaccessible by car, is near the borders of Ethiopia, Sudan and Uganda. Police recovered 3,000 of about 3,500 animals stolen by the rustlers, Kitele said. On March 30, rustlers hacked 15 nomads to death in northern Kenya and stole 2,000 goats. "Rustlers have lost all respect for human life to the extent that they will massacre human beings in cold blood," Kitele said. "I wish to warn anybody within Kenya or outside still harboring ideas of rustling to desist.. . . Government response to rustling will always be prompt and aggressive hot pursuit."

With a new poll saying the race for New York's 255 Democratic convention delegates is tightening, Jackson, Michael Dukakis and Albert Gore aired their differences over policy toward South Africa and the Middle East, as well as funding for combating drugs. The candidates also vowed to work for party unity, regardless of who wins the Democratic presi dential nomination. "It's Too Close To Call," pro claimed the New York Daily News in a front-page headline Sunday as it released the findings of its latest poll. The overall poll numbers, based on responses from Democrats questioned Monday through Thursday, had Dukakis in front of Jackson, 51 percent to 37 percent, with Gore trailing at 10 percent. However, the Daily News reported that in the final two days of polling, Gore had begun to pick up support at the expense of Dukakis.

Contra trial may affect pardon WASHINGTON The timing of the Iran-contra criminal trial of Oliver North and John Poindexter could play a major role in deter mining public reaction to a pardon by President Reagan, experts say. However, the experts disagree whether a pre-trial or post-trial pardon if Reagan should decide to take that course would be more acceptable to Americans. Some of the university profes sors and senators interviewed by The Associated Press said pardons before trial would be more accept able. This way, the prosecution would not get a chance to bring out potentially damaging evidence. But others said pardons before trial would bring an immediate assumption of guilt, and they suggested that Reagan await a conviction if he wants to forgive the defendants.
