Gabor Peter, was leader of Hungary's secret police BUDAPEST, Hungary One of Communist Hungary's most hated and feared men, Gabor Peter, chief of the secret police, has died, news reports and historians said Thursday. Peter was 86 and nearly blind when he died Jan. 23 of natural causes in a Budapest hospital, the reports said. His death was not reported until Thursday, when the Reform daily had a story about it. Historian Tibor Zinner confirmed that Peter had died. Born on May 14, 1906, Peter became a tailor and joined the then-illegal Communist Party in 1931. After World War II, he became the party's security chief and headed the state security apparatus, the AVH, when the Communists seized power. When his Soviet mentor, Lavrenti Beria, was executed in 1953 after the death of Josef Stalin, Peter, who allegedly had tortured political opponents, was arrested and blamed for the Communists' political show trials of 1948-1952. Peter was released from prison in 1959 and was a librarian Deaths before retiring. ELSEWHERE LAWRENCE H.

Negligence, rules violation caused nuclear-waste blast, Russian disaster aides say The Associated Press MOSCOW An explosion at a secret nuclear-weapons complex that contaminated a Siberian area was caused by negligence and the violation of plant procedures, officials said Friday. Meanwhile, the international environmental group Greenpeace accused Russian nuclear officials of trying to cover up the severity of the accident and demanded an independent investigation. Dima Tolmatsky of Greenpeace Russia said the Atomic Energy Ministry "has been providing contradictory and misleading information" since Tuesday's blast at the Siberian Chemical Complex near the secret city ofTomsk-7. President Boris Yeltsin's adviser on the environment, Alexei Yablokov, said rescuers who fought the fire that broke out after the explosion received larger radiation doses than had been officially announced. The news agency ITAR-Tass quoted disaster officials as saying the 35 plant employees and firefighters who battled the blaze still did not receive radiation doses that pose a health threat. Efforts continue to clean the area of contaminated snow and dirt and to try to prevent its runoff into streams. Russian officials have said the accident was the worst since the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident, which killed 31 people and spread radiation over a wide territory. On Friday, the Atomic Energy Ministry described the contaminated area as 14 square miles one-fifth the estimate originally given by the state Emergency Committee. Preliminary reports from the State Nuclear Safety Oversight Committee said the blast was caused by a violation of procedures at the plant. This reportedly occurred as equipment that processes nuclear materials was being readied for repairs. As a result, a tank containing uranium and plutonium waste exploded, spreading radioactive material into the surrounding area, the news agency Interfax quoted the statement as saying. A fire then broke out, and the roof and several walls of a building at the complex were destroyed, said Marina Ryklina, a spokeswoman for the Emergency Committee. Western nuclear experts fear such incidents at facilities across the former Soviet Union will become more commonplace due to outdated technology and lax safety. The explosion also raises concerns because the Tomsk complex has been suggested as a storage site for plutonium removed from dismantled nuclear warheads. Disaster workers are searching for plutonium traces in the contaminated area but have not found any, said Georgy Kaurov, a spokesman for the Atomic Energy Ministry. "Plutonium is the main concern, but it is not the only one," said Environment Minister Viktor Dani-lov-Danilyan. He told ITAR-Tass that experts will go to the area today to search for any evidence of plutonium contamination. Authorities said they are monitoring radiation levels in four villages in or near the contaminated zone, ITAR-Tass reported. In one village, radiation readings were said to be twice the normal level but not high enough to present an immediate danger. No evacuations were ordered. Teen in French police shooting dies The Associated Press PARIS A teen-ager shot by police during an arrest died Friday, the third such shooting death this week, raising fears of new rioting against alleged police brutality. Extra riot police were deployed in Turcoing, in northern France. Authorities asked for calm to head off more rioting after clashes Thursday night. At least 40 people were injured in Paris rioting Wednesday and Thursday. Police forbade a march set for today in Paris, fearing new outbreaks.
