Over Plane, Incident 'Shoot to Kill Chiang Orders TAIPEI (UPI) -President Chiang Kai-shek, angered by the Communist downing of an unarmed Nationalist plane car rying three Red Chinese defectors, sent warships and jets into the Formosa Straits Monday with orders to shoot any Red targets in sight. Military sources said the Nationalist .air force, navy units and the garrison forces on Mat-su and Quemoy islands had been ordered to "full alert." "Nobody knows what is going to happen," said Maj. Gen. Liu Shun-wu, a defense ministry spokesman. The situation here was considered the most critical since 1958 when the Reds bombarded the Nationalist-held offshore islands of Quemoy and Matsu. The crisis was touched off when an undisclosed number of Chinese MIGs swooped down on a Nationalist seaplane Sunday about 15 minutes after it left Matsu on a flight to Taipai. Aboard were three Communist sailors who had surrendered their 25-ton landing ship' to the Nationalists a few hours earlier in what was considered a sig nificant propaganda coup. Also aboard were an undisclosed number of crewmen and WWIMWW- f" WWW ffW "i 1 ii Nationalist officials who had welcomed them. Nationalist officials laid all aboard apparently were killed. Peking's New China News Agency said the . Nationalist plane had been on a "harassing and sabotage" mission over tne east- China coastal regions and commended the air force for its quick action. It was .not im mediately clear if tne neas were aware that defectors were aboard the craft. Be a careful driver today, not a sorry one tomorrow.
