Manuel Antonio Noriega closed shops nationwide, but food was running low and Noriega again rejected a U.S. call for him to surrender power and go into exile. "I am a Panamanian not a gringo," Noriega said after meeting Tuesday with a small group of union supporters. "Let the world know we are fighting the ultimate battle for dignity and against colonialism." An estimated 90 percent of offices and industries were shut by the strike on Tuesday. Most shops and stores were closed, public transportation was halted and many government employees did not go to work. By nightfall, the streets of Panama City were nearly deserted. The strike was to enter its third day today. The United States is using economic pressure against Noriega, withholding payments for use of the Panama Canal and freezing Panamanian accounts in U.S. banks to starve the government of the dollars it uses as its currency. The government must meet several major payrolls by the end of the month, including that of the 15,000-strong Defense Forces, which Noriega heads. Between the cash crunch and the strike, the latest in a series of walkouts that began last summer to protest Noriega's alleged corruption, food has grown scarce. Eric Arturo Delvalle, who was removed as president Feb. 26 after trying to fire Noriega, appealed for international food aid Tuesday. "I am very concerned and fear for the health and lives of many Panamanians," Delvalle said in a videotaped message from hiding. The United States still recognizes him as Panama's president. Relief officials said on Tuesday that more and more hungry families, some of whom have not eaten in five or six days, were flocking to emergency centers around the country. And port workers said they had run out of food for their union members, but voted to stay on strike. Sandinistas, Contras Close To Agreement SAPOA, Nicaragua (AP) — Sandinista and Contra rebel negotiators are heading into their final day of cease-fire talks closer than ever to reaching agreement on steps to end Nicaragua's six-year war. The main stumbling blocks as the two sides prepared for today's third round of talks appeared to center on the mechanics of how the Contras would lay down their arms and be granted amnesty. In Tuesday's session, both sides exchanged proposals that agree on major points. Defense Minister Humberto Ortega, who heads the government delegation, said afterward that he expected a "concrete agreement" to emerge from the discussions. But sources close to the talks cautioned that they could still stall on final details. One source said the talks could continue beyond today. Salvador's Rightists Want Smooth Change SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) — President Jose Napoleon Duarte and the rightists who defeated his party in legislative and municipal elections have declared a willingness to work together on this country's tremendous problems. But the leftist guerrillas waging an 8-year-old war against the U.S.-backed government said Tuesday the result of Sunday's vote would make the nation "ungovernable." A rebel commander said the electoral result — an outright majority for the rightist opposition in the national legislature — favors the guerrillas by giving the people "a clear alternative." In addition to the war, El Salvador has crippling economic problems. DEVELOPMENTS •Negotiators for the Sandinistas and Contra rebels hold a third round of truce talks today after exchanging proposals that for the first time agree on major points.

World Report Mitterand moment, and Mitterand Will Run For Another Term PARIS (AP) — Ending months of speculation, President Francois Mitterrand announced he will seek a second seven-year term. The 71-year-old Socialist made the announcement Tuesday, only four weeks before voters go to the polls.

Shamir Stand Applauded In Israel JERUSALEM (AP) —Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir returned from the United States to the cheers of thousands of singing and dancing supporters who welcomed his steadfast refusal to accept an American peace plan. "I return satisfied, especially after people tried to frighten me before I left that the visit would be a difficult one and that I would near harsh words," Shamir told an airport news conference Tuesday. "I'm satisfied that didn't happen." In Israel's occupied lands on Tuesday, a Palestinian motorist was ambushed and killed near the Gaza Strip town of Khan Yunis, and Israeli troops shot and killed a Palestinian in the West Bank village of Tubas. According to U.N. figures, 107 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli soldiers or settlers since a wave of anti-occupation violence began in the territories Dec. 8. One Israeli soldier has been killed. Debris Found Where Jet Went Down TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Coast Guard searchers today found debris they sus- ted was from an Air 'orce F-16 jet that crashed into the Gulf of Mexico during a training mission, but there was no sign of the pilot, officials said. The unidentified pilot was solo 40 miles west of Fort Myers when the jet went down Tuesday night, said Air Force Capt. Diane Lawhon, a spokeswoman for MacDill Air Force Base. Officials don't know what caused the crash or if the pilot was able to eject from the plane. Searchers flew over a 100-square~mile area early today and found small pieces of debris they believe was part of the plane, said Petty Officer Tom Gillespie. "The pieces are small. The biggest is 1-foot-by-l- foot. They are collecting the debris and will give it to the Air Force." Gillespie said. U.S. Wants PLO Out Of Country UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The PLO accused the United States of engaging in "financial terrorism" by seeking a court order barring the PLO from operating its U.N. observer mission or spending funds for its expenses. The Justice Department filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking the federal court order, which also would force the Palestine Liberation Organization to transfer its bank funds out of the United States. The closure of the mission is required under the 1987 Anti-Terrorism Act, which found the PLO and its affiliates were a terrorist organization responsible for numerous violent incidents, including the murder of an American citizen during the hijacking of the cruise ship AchilleLauroinl985. PLO mission chief Zehdi Labib Terzi criticized the suit as "financial terrorism to strangle us," adding: "The only asset we have in this country is the building we live in. Maybe they want me to live on the street, but this would not be the first time the Palestinians become refugees." Terzi said he would have no comment on the PLO's possible legal response until he reads the lawsuit.
