In a wide-ranging interview, Trump said on CNN's "Late Edition" that he will decide by February whether to run for president Trump said his Reform Party colleague, Pat Buchanan, has "no hope" of winning the presidency, and he predicted that Buchanan's campaign would attract enough Republicans to let Democrats win office. His own campaign would not, Trump said. Trump said he supports amending the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty and negotiating with North Korea because the United States needs a missile-defense shield.

"We give them nuclear power plants. We give them tremendous aid because we thought we could bribe them into stop developing. Well, they're developing, so much so mat South Korea is now developing their own missile systems in order to protect And I'm really not sure I can blame them." Trump also complained that Russia was "out of control" with a leader who is "a disaster." As president, Trump said U.S. aid "would probably stop if it were me, until they straightened out their act." In other political news Sunday: Former Sen. Bill Bradley, seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, was back stumping in Iowa, dining on home-cooked chili during a three-day visit. Bradley pushed his health care plan and more oversight of concentration in agribusiness. "I think people who vote for a president want to have something to vote for, not against," Bradley said in Audubon. "That's why I've spent all my time laying out my record, what I want to do." The Teamsters said they probably will not endorse Buchanan for president even though the union agrees with the potential Reform Party presidential nominee on trade issues, Teamsters leader James P.

Bombing at pizzeria wounds 31 in S. Africa Muslim vigilantes have been blamed for previous blasts in Cape Town area Reuters News Service CAPE TOWN, South Africa A home-made bomb wounded 31 people Sunday at a pizza shop at a beach resort, authorities said. The blast was the latest to hit the Cape Town area. "It was a pipe bomb hidden in a plastic bag under one of the tables in the middle of the restaurant," said police spokesman Neville Ma-lila. He said no one had claimed responsibility for the blast, and that the restaurant had not received any threats. The bomb exploded in the popular St. Elmo's pizzeria, which overlooks the crowded Camps Bay beach on the Atlantic Ocean. The restaurant is in a block housing several restaurants that cater to young surfers and families. Dr. Gerald Dalbock said two of the victims were hospitalized in critical condition. "One patient has sustained major trauma to a lower limb," he said. One of the victims was a 6-year-old In As Stocking-Stuffers... Holiday Gifts For The Whole Family!

That bombing was followed by several other explosions. Most have been attributed to a Muslim vigilante group, People Against Gangsterism and Drugs. For about a year, police have cracked down on urban terrorists, and some vigilante group members have been arrested for possession of explosives. On Friday, a prominent vigilante group member was convicted of murdering four people in a shootout near the city's Waterfront tourist area. Regional Safety and Security Minister Mark Wiley said the blast may have been a response to the conviction. Cape Town's tourism chief, Sher-yl Ozinsky, deplored the bombing as an attack on innocent people. "It is a cowardly act," she said. "It is undermining the livelihood not only of the many people who live here but also to the sense of freedom we have fought for. People are afraid to go out here."

"It defies description," said Dr. Kambiz Hashemi, one of five surgeons who treated the victim. Among the other victims most of them elderly two men suffered shoulder lacerations, but were in stable condition, said the hospital's chief executive, Keith Ford. The others had less serious injuries, included one victim who suffered a broken leg during the melee to get out. A trail of blood led from the church, located in an usually quiet suburban street. Police said the arrested man lived in the area, but priests at St Andrew's said he was not known in the parish. The attack happened moments before about 100 children were to return to the Mass from an adjoining hall, where they had separate prayers and stories. Churchgoer Marie Parcou, 66, said, "I cannot believe this happened in a church." Meanwhile, local lawmaker Richard Ottaway said the attack showed that "no legislation in the world could cater for this kind of thing." "We have banned handguns, put security cameras into hospitals, but there's a limit to how we can protect ourselves," he said. i 4 " or 11M. MID RIVERS IJML i I ( v
