Reports of plan for coup circulate isr South Africa Palm Beach Post Wire Services ' JOHANNESBURG, South Africa The mystery surrounding the! arrest of a former anti-apaj-theid guerrilla who is a government official deepened Sunday.; President Nelson Mandela said he had received a report linking the former guerrilla, several army generals and the presidents former wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, to a plot to overthrow the government. But the president said the report, submitted to him by the chief of the army, Gen. Georg Meiring, was probably a hoax. He said, it might be. part of a right-wing plot to undermine the nation's first black-led government. Rumors have circulated for more than a week that the arrest of the former guerrilla, Robert McBride, on gun-running charges in Mozambique on March 9 was! somehow linked to a coup plot. McBride, who works in SoUth Africa's Department of Foreign affairs, is best known for carrying out a terrorist bombing in 1986 that killed three civilians. But he was released from death row as part of the negotiations for this country's transition to majority rule and was given a job in the new government. Communist win predicted ; KIEV An exit poll showed the Communist Party was likely to win most votes in Ukraine's parliamentary election, presaging a political showdown with embattled President Leonid Kuchma. ; A large number of the former Soviet republic's 37 million registered voters, fed up with economic hardships, had been widely expected to vote for the left in Sunday's election in a show of no-confidence in Kuchma's slow reforms. Helicopters grounded . BOSTON The U.S. Army and National Guard have grounded their fleets of UH-1 Huey helicopters, which have an unexplained history of potentially catastrophic mechanical problems. The military has placed wide restrictions on the Vietnam-era helicopters since November including barring flights in clouds and over water but declared Hueys safe to fly as recently as last week. In all, 907 Huey helicopters are expected to be grounded for between six months and two years. The majority of those are used by the National Guard. 3 to split $28 million TALLAHASSEE Three tickets matched all six numbers in the latest Lotto drawing and will split the $28 million jackpot, Florida lottery officials said Sunday. The winning Lotto numbers drawn Saturday were 5, 11, 31, 32, 40 and 48. Lottery records show the winning tickets were sold in Lakeland, Orange Park and St. Cloud. Highway bill criticized WASHINGTON Rep. John Kasich, the Republican chairman of the House Budget Committee, said Sunday President Clinton should veto a $217 billion highway spending bill if it passes in its current form. Kasich, of Ohio, has attacked the bill for containing too many special pork barrel projects that threaten efforts to balance the federal budget. The bill, which calls for a 43 percent increase in highway spending over the next six years, was scheduled for a House vote this week. The measure cleared the Senate two weeks ago with $3 billion less in spending. Differences in both bills would still have to be worked out Hospital worker case LOS ANGELES Science may not be much help proving the case against a hospital worker who admitted suffocating or fatally drugging up to 50 terminally ill patients, an expert said Sunday. Those methods of killing can leave few signs to show up in an autopsy if the bodies are exhumed. "It's going to be very difficult," said Dr. Cyril Wecht, a nationally known forensics pathologist who serves as a county medical examiner in Pittsburgh. He suggested that authorities should take their time and be "very selective" about which body to dig up. "If you're going to nail this guy. and make sure he s not a kook or a nut or something, one case apainst him is as good as 50," said Wecht, who has been involved in cass like the JonBenet Ramsey slaying.
