A-6World T I IF. CINCINNATI FNQl HRF.R Monday, September 30, 1991 Marchers recall Babi Yar massacre Coalition chooses minister of Zaire 8'"'' ,,i.'V,- " v Mobutu forced their way into his marble palace and disrupted the nine hours of talks aimed at keeping this vast country from slipping further THE ASSOCIATED PRESS KINSHASA, Zaire President Mobutu Sese Seko and his opponents chose an opposition leader as prime minister Sunday despite threats by government critics to kill the new minister if Mobutu remained in power. Etienne Tshisekedi, leader of the Union for Democracy and Social Progress, was selected to form the so-called government of national crisis, unconfirmed French media reports said. The appointment must be approved by political leaders who will convene Tuesday, the reports said. It was not clear what role Mobutu would play in a new government or what powers Tshisekedi would have as prime minister. Earlier, about 20 opponents of said in a telephone interview from Kiev. "If people who were butchers are going to be included among those who are national heroes, this is a smear on the whole process of democratization." After the Nazis occupied Kiev in 1941, they ordered all of the city's Jews to gather near a railroad siding with their warm clothes and valuables, leading them to believe they were to be deported. The Jews were marched to the edge of the Babi Yar ravine, where more than 30,000 were machine-gunned to death on Sept. 29-30, 1941. German death squads continued to execute Jews, Communists, Gypsies, homosexuals and others at the ravine for two. years. At least 100,000 people, and possibly twice that number, are believed to have died before the Red Army liberated Kiev in 1943. Babi Yar was long a symbol not only of the Holocaust, but also of Soviet anti-Semitism and repression of religion. Only after an international outcry, did the government erect a statue in 1966. The weeklong commemoration will culminate in a ceremony Saturday that is to include a reading by Soviet poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko of his 1961 poem "Babi Yar," which helped keep the memory of the massacre alive. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MOSCOW Tens of thousands of people marched Sunday in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, marking the 50th anniversary of the Nazi massacre of Jews at Babi Yar, a ravine on the city outskirts. The weeklong commemoration has attracted Jewish leaders from Israel, the United States, Canada, Germany, France and other countries. Marchers carried photographs of relatives who were shot and buried in the mass grave at the ravine. Hasidic Jews with long beards and black robes joined Russian Orthodox priests and Ukrainian Catholics in the solemn ceremony. They marched behind blue-and-white Israeli flags. One of the Israeli participants voiced concern Sunday that Nazi collaborators may be among the 50,000 Ukrainians who have been officially "rehabilitated," or vindicated, of Stalin-era crimes since April. Shimon Samuels, European director of the Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, said he gave a list of 1,000 suspected collaborators to the Ukrainian government for checking. "We understand that people repressed by Stalin are now considered national heroes," Samuels Mobutu Sese Seko into chaos. The group told reporters that they would kill Tshisekedi, 58, and other opposition leaders if they agreed to form a coalition government with Mobutu remaining. The scene demonstrated Mobutu's loss of control since unpaid soldiers mutinied a week ago, pillaging Kinshasa and other cities in this sprawling Central African country of 30 million people. 1 he Associated PressElrem LukatsKy Sara Stesel, a Ukrainian, joins a commemoration ceremony in Kiev Sunday for the Jews and other people killed at Babi Yar.

An explosion rocked Georgia's broadcasting center Sunday while it was occupied by opponents of President Zviad Gamsakhurdia, and violence in the breakaway region of South Ossetia reportedly left two dead. The evening blast injured at least one person and blew out most of the windows in the four-story building. Opposition leader Tengiz Segua called it a "provocation" by Gamsakhurdia's forces. Rebel leaders say truce talks with the " government have been bogged down over an agenda and the question of who would represent the opposition. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MOSCOW About a thousand mourners attended a memorial service Sunday for the three victims of the failed August coup, vowing never to forget their fallen comrades. But the enthusiasm of the barricades seemed to be gone, and some marchers said little had changed in the 40 days since the three men died defending the Russian Parliament. Some mourners said they thought the Communist Party was still ruling the country despite President Mikhail Gorbachev's suspension of its activities following the Aug. 18-21 coup. The low attendence surprised Russian Federation Vice President Alexander Rutskoi. "Today not enough people have come, especially considering the events," he said. The somber ceremony was held at the newly named Freedom of Russia Square, just a few hundred yards from the Russian Parliament building. It was the lead item on both the Russian and Soviet television newscasts Sunday evening. Gorbachev was shown barely holding back tears. Sunday's crowd was a mix of elderly people-wearing World War II medals, legislators with Russian Parliament lapel pins, Russian Orthodox priests in long black robes and young men in fatigues bearing the tri-color armbands of Parliament defenders. Rutskoi, who spoke on behalf of the Russian" government, urged the crowd to take an active part in reviving the country's economy. "Some think that democracy has indeed won and we are moving toward democratic freedoms. But it is not so. Let us not think that democracy has won after the events here, around this building. We are facing enormous tasks in reviving and developing the economy, we face elections of leadership," he said.

DDAnin IVIClAff DCnniMS sold THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MANAMA, Bahrain U.N. nuclear inspectors who spent five days in a Baghdad parking lot in a standoff with Iraqi officials were preparing Sunday to leave the country. The team is expected in Bahrain today. Meanwhile, another group of weapons inspectors, whose job is to track down Iraqi missiles and missile launchers, was due to leave Bahrain for Baghdad on Tuesday. That group could become the first U.N. inspection team to make independent helicopter flights to conduct their work, which has been another source of conflict between the Iraqis and the United Nations and Western powers. Still another United Nations team arrived Sunday in Kuwait to carry out a land survey of the desert border between Iraq and Kuwait, a U.N. official said. The border dispute was among the Iraqi pretexts for the invasion of Kuwait in August, 1990. This weekend, the nuclear inspection team finished cataloging key documents detailing Iraq's secret nuclear arms program. The inspectors will keep the documents, but the catalogs will be turned over to the Iraqis. The U.N. Special Commission charged with overseeing elimination of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction has its area headquarters in Bahrain. insets $OQ FULL EES ea. pc. 3 $ r-ituvi H,j392 oa.uu. tnf KING Oi7 ea. pc.

U.S. finds shaky ally in Saudis THE NEW YORK TIMES WASHINGTON The United States has encountered significant differences with its key Persian Gulf ally, Saudi Arabia, over the scope and scale of secret American military plans to force compliance with United Nations demands for destroying Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, U.S. and allied officials say. In the first round of secret planning this month to send American combat helicopters into Iraq to escort U.N. inspection flights, Saudi officials pressed the United States to consider establishing a helicopter base in Kuwait or seizing a base in Iraq as part of the escort plan so it "would not look like a Saudi-American operation," one official said. In a second round of urgent planning last week, the United States notified Riyadh that beyond the deployment of 96 Patriot missiles and 1,300 U.S. Army technicians to operate them, the Pentagon was sending 80 warplanes and more than 3,000 additional troops to Saudi Arabia to prepare for punitive bombing raids against Iraq, an option the Pentagon has been instructed to prepare. Once again, this caused Saudi officials to question Washington's planning and prompted a pointed message Thursday from Prince Sultan bin Adbul Aziz, the Saudi defense minister, that with more than 300 American and Saudi warplanes already in the kingdom and another 150 or more on two aircraft carriers, the allies "have a hell of a punch already available in the area and more than enough to do any job," as one official described the prince's complaint.
