A8 MONDAY. MAY 25, 1998 WORLD THE SALINA JOURNAL PAKISTAN Soldiers capture three hijackers Pakistani students hijacked airplane in protest of nuclear tests By KATHY GANNON The Associated Press ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Pakistani army commandos overpowered three men Monday who had hijacked a commercial plane with 29 people aboard and demanded to go to India, defense ministry officials said. All the passengers escaped unhurt, but initial reports said an ! army major received gunshot ; wounds during an exchange of gunfire. His injuries were not life threat; ening, the reports said. All of the hijackers, who were protesting nuclear testing, were arrested and one was injured in the scuffle, said defense ministry officials, who initially reported there were five hijackers but later changed the number to three. The men had seized the Pakistan International Airlines plane eight hours earlier, but a Pakistan Air Force fighter jet intercepted it and forced it to land in Hyder- T INDONESIA abad, about 90 miles north of Karachi, its destination. The hijackers released eight of their hostages and were persuaded to leave the aircraft and come out on the tarmac, said defense ministry officials, who refused to give their names. Dozens of waiting commandos pounced on the hijackers and arrested them, the officials said. The defense ministry said the hijackers were members of the Baluchistan Students' Federation, a group that has been protesting Pakistan's reported plans to test a nuclear device in that southwestern province. The crew of the Fokker Friendship propeller aircraft had calmed the captors by telling them the plane had crossed into India and was preparing to land in the state of Rajasthan, according to a defense ministry official who spoke on condition of anonymity. Throughout the negotiations the hijackers apparently believed they were in India and a government official posed as Pakistan's ambassador to India to negotiate with them, the state-run news agency said. New cabinet ministers call for early elections 5 new ministers give their support to plan by economic minister By GEOFF SPENCER The Associated Press JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's new leader faced another challenge to his fledgling presidency Sunday as five government ministers, sworn in a day earlier, demanded early elections. The new Cabinet ministers allied themselves with the top economic minister, Ginandjar Kartasasmita, who on Saturday called for a parliamentary election as soon as possible to elect a new president. Opposition figure Amien Rais, who leads the campaign for political reform, said Sunday he had been informed that President B.J. Habibie had agreed to hold early elections. Government officials were not available for comment and Rais would not elaborate. The transfer of power to Habibie, 70 die in India during heat wave By The Associated Press NEW DELHI, India — India's smoldering heat wave has killed 15 more people, pushing the death toll from heat-related illnesses so far this summer to 70, weather officials said. Daytime temperatures hovered around 113 degrees in several parts of the country, and hospitals overflowed with victims of heat stroke, dehydration and other illnesses, officials said. Apart from a freak shower in parts of New Delhi last week, there has been no rain. Monsoon rains will not reach the southern tip of the country in the coastal Kerala state for at least a week. In New Delhi, angry residents took to the streets last week, some attacking government-owned power stations because of frequent power outages. vice president under ousted President Suharto, calls for him to serve out Suharto's term until 2003. Lining up behind Ginandjar are the ministers of finance, industry and trade, national development planning, state enterprises' empowerment and the Bank Indonesia governor. Ginandjar said Saturday that some ministers never intended to serve out their five-year terms when they accepted their posts. Six of 36 Cabinet ministers lining up against their own government was the latest twist in the unfolding Indonesian drama. Habibie took office Thursday after Suharto resigned, ending his 32- year rule following days of protests and violence. The army sent troops and tanks onto the streets of the capital after more than 500 people were killed and thousands of buildings burned or wrecked by rioters. Habibie was expected to order amnesty today for about 15 political prisoners when he holds the first meeting of his new Cabinet.
