Revolution Hits Bangladesh As Officials, Hijackers Deal DACCA, Bangladesh (AP)-Gunflre erupted in Dacca early Sunday and Radio Bangladesh said that an "armed revolution" was In progress by the armed forces, students, peasants and workers. The radio station said It had been taken over by people describing themselves as members of a "people's army." BUT MORE than two hours after the Initial broadcast the radio made no further mention of a revolution. One broadcast carried an item praising the military ruler, MaJ. Gen. Ziaur Rahman, suggesting that his supporters may have put down an attempted coup. Witnesses at the airport, tense and crowded because of a four-day siege of a hijacked Jetliner by Japanese terrorists, said at least four army officers were shot by troops apparently taking part in the revolt. The hijacked Japan Air Lines DC8, on which five heavily armed terrorists were holding 80 hostages, was reported still on the runway Sunday morning. There were unconfirmed reports Losses Top i. i s s that Bangladesh Vice President Abdus Sattar and Foreign Secretary Tabarok Hossaln were under siege Inside the airport terminal. But there was no word on the whereabouts of Gen. Ziaur, the country's president and chief martial-law administrator who came to power November 7, 1975, in an upheaval in the nation's faction-ridden army. OBSERVERS SPECULATED that the early morning outbreak may have been instigated by young radicals of the National Socialist party. Most of the party's leaders are currently In Jail on vaf ious charges. Two brief bursts of automatic fire were heard at 7:30 a.m. outside the midtown Intercontinental Hotel, but traffic and street life appeared to be normal. Unidentified persons amswering the telephone at the airport said public areas of the terminal had been vacated. They gave no indication on the fate of Air Vice Marshal A.G. Mahmoud, who had conducted negotiations with the Japanese hijackers. The early morning outbreak of J Av . til, f Enquirer Photo BY ED REINKE sporadic gunfire in Dacca and at the airport was first thought to be linked to the hijack drama. But after 90 minutes of shooting, at 5:50 a.m. (8 p.m. EDT Saturday), Radio Bangladesh suddenly told Its listeners to stand by for an "important message." It followed with the announcement of an "armed revolution." For a while soldiers were seen taking up positions In downtown streets. But by 6:45 a.m. there was no sign of troops or armored vehicles in midtown. However, there were reports that soldiers had taken up positions along the main roads leading from the airport to downtown Dacca three miles away. , THE RADIO announcement of a revolt came against a backdrop of tense developments in the. siege of the Japan Air Lines DC8. Five heavily armed Japanese "Red Army" terrorists released 59 of their hostages late Saturday and . early Sunday in exchange for $6 million in ransom and six freed .Japanese inmates, and they had i BY ED BEDINGHAUS Enquirer Reporter National Weather Service officials confirmed a tornado touched down at least once early Saturday during storms which caused millions of dollars damage and injured about a score of people in Greater Cincinnati. The storms brought several Inches of rain that caused scattered flooding and led to an explosion and fire at Hilton-Davis Chemical Co. Winds clocked as high as 59 mph at Greater Cincinnati Airport downed utility lines and trees, and lightning touched off fires at some homes. Residents of Green Township and many other sections said they did not hear civil defense warning sirens until more than half an hour after the twister struck-the third time In three years a tornado has damaged a section of Green Township. A FUNNEL cloud touched down near Seville Ct. and Race Rd. In Green Township at 7:10 a.m., according to Joe Whltaker of the weather service. It destroyed 12 homes in a well-to-do section of Monfort Heights, and damaged 15 nine heavily. Damage to this area alone was estimated at $2 million by Hamilton County officials. About a score of people were injured. Thirteen were hurt in Green Township. Three remained hospitalized late Saturday. Two residents of the DeVore subdivision in Winchester, Ohio, were treated at Adams County Hospital and released. Hamilton County Sheriff Lincoln Stokes, township Trustee Don Keller and Rep. Thomas A. Luken (D-Ohlo) asked Gov. James A. Rhodes to declare the touchdown site a disaster area. Later, Rhodes told Luken he would send a team to Investigate. Luken aide Timothy Mara said the investigators were expected to arrive late Saturday. Never before had a tornado occurred this late In the year In Greater Cincinnati, weather service officials said. Lightning struck a stone house at 7147 Cleves-Warsaw Pk. In Delhi Township at 8:30 a.m. Its occupant, Michael Sutwak, had to be rescued from the fire by units from the Delhi and Mack Volunteer Fire Departments. He was admitted to Good Samaritan Hospital for smoke Inhalation, said Mack District Marshal Hal Welge. Several fire fighters were treated for smoke inhalation and cuts, he said. NUMEROUS TORNADO sightings were reported in other areas of the Tri-State. Residents of Madl-sonvllle said they saw a funnel cloud blowing at tree level along Madison and Red Bank Rds. One was reported In Rushville, Ind. Others were said to have passed east of Cincinnati near Williamsburg In Clermont County and Winchester In Adams County. But the weather service spokesman said a tornado touched down only In Green Township. Rain began falling at 10:25 p.m. Friday. After a three-hour calm, It resumed at 4:45 a.m., but with greater fury, the weather service spokesman said. By the time the rain stopped at 8:43 a.m., about 1.3 Inches of water had fallen. A weather service employee measured 3.77 inches In Ross, Ohio, In Southern Butler County. Communities throughout the county saw floods, felled trees and downed power lines. Deputy Cincinnati City Manager Martin P. Walsh Jr. said 37 of Cincinnati's 44 neigh- been expected to take off for an unknown destination with 80 remaining hostages. Japan Air Lines (JAL) in Tokyo said a bus taking freed hostages into the city was turned back when the gunfire broke out. Bangladesh has been plagued with violent government upheavals since it won independence from Pakistan In the 1971 Indian-Pakistani war. The first president and prime minister, Sheik Mujlbur Rahman, was killed In a coup by pro-Pakistani officers on August 15, 1975. But the new martial law administrator, Khondakar Mushtaque Ahmed, was overthrown three months later, and on November 7, 1975, another left-wing coup brought Ziaur Rahman to power. THE COUNTRY has'been relatively stable under Rahman. But he has been unable to put a dent In the massive problems confronting Bangladesh. The biggest of these is feeding a constantly expanding population estimated at 80 million. One U.S. expert has said the country will need a minimum of $1 billion a year for decades to feed Its hungry. Despite government efforts at popularizing birth control, the population continues to grow by about 10.000 a day. The per capita income is about $30 a year. ion On The Inside: More Storm Photos, Stories, A-14, -15 borhoods reported storm damage of varying magnitude. The hardest hit was Madlsonvllle. Districts Three and Five police said trees and wires were down on the west and central sections of Cincinnati. A store window was blown out on Harrison Avenue, police said. Electricity was off for a while at the District Three station on Warsaw Avenue, Price Hill. STRONG WINDS damaged the roofs of several homes along Chase Avenue, in Northslde, District Five police reported. The Americun Can Co. in Northslde also Incurred roof damage, Walsh said. Wind was reported to have lifted a Dumpster and dropped It on a small car in ML Airy. The heavy rainfall caused a $200,000 fire at the Hilton-Davis Chemical Co., 2235 Langdon Farm Rd., Golf Manor. Cincinnati Fire Marshal Robert Homeyer said water went through a ventilator In the Ice plant. It caused a small explosion , damaglnpthe wiring and the transformer. No one was Injured In the fire at 7:38 a.m., he said. Power failures were reported In Silverton, Cheviot, Clermont and Adams Counties. WALSH, WHO until late August was director of Cincinnati's buildings department, was among many who was convinced a tornado had touched down In Madlsonvllle. "1 have no doubt there was a touchdown," he said. "I've had experience with five tornados. All the signs are here." Whatever it was, it caused extensive damage in the eastern Cincinnati neighborhood. At NuTone Corp., Madison and Red Bank Rds., about 10 of 30 cars parked In the lot were demolished. They were apparently picked up by the wind and dropped. Some were stacked on each other. Nancy Lamb, 5529 Orlando Dr., said she was driving near the factory when "I heard a roar and all of a sudden my car was off the ground. It Just picked it up." It landed in front of K & K Bar-beque, 5808 Madison Rd., she said. At NuTone, a chunk of a concrete wall and part of the roof was ripped off. Because of the damage, the factory was closed and the workers were sent home. THE Madlsonvllle Presbyterian Church, In the 4600 block of Erie Avenue, suffered an estimated $50,000 damage when a tree fell on the roof. By evening, many of the congregants were working at repairing the damage. Walsh said the city would not estimate damages. "It Just wasn't worth It," he said. "The damage was minor, overall." City crews were ordered out for cleanup Saturday and today, he said. The Red Cross set up a relief center at St. Ignatius Church, 5522 North Bend Rd., several blocks from Seville Court. It will reopen today. Additionally, volunteers provided security during the night. The Volunteers of America helped victims move their belongings for safekeeping.
