umcago iriDune, weanesaay, juiy i, i03 oecuwi i 10 Nationworld national report D.C. income lid seen aimed at Jackson From Chicago Trtbuna wire WASHINGTON The District of Columbia City Council passed legislation Tuesday limiting outside income for top city officials, but not before some members attacked the bill as a thinly veiled attempt to discourage Jesse Jackson from running for mayor. The bill, proposed by council member and mayoral hopeful John Ray, limits outside income for the mayor and council members to $10,000 per year. One council member called the bill a "cheap shot" at Jackson, who earns Singapore lure stirs crowds in Hong Kong Journal o) Commarce " HONG i KONG Police were -..called to maintain' order Tuesday after thousands of anxious local : residents besieged the Singapore . . government's equivalent of an em-, bassy to take advantage of Singapore's newly liberalized im-... migration laws. There was so much pandemonium - that the Singapore Commission, the .-. de facto embassy, was forced to stop ;.. distributing leaflets and forms within two hours of its opening. Applications will be dealt with by mail from now on, officials said. "The response has been overwhelming, with massive crowds," said Michael Lim of SMC (HK) Ltd., a Singapore government-backed company that handles recruitment. "In the interest of public safety, we have decided to close the distribution booth and ask people to apply by post." Singapore announced Monday it was substantially easing the requirements for immigration by an initial 25,000 Hong Kong residents and their families. Many in Hong Kong are seeking new homes abroad before China takes control of the island's government from Britain in 1997. China's suppression of pro-democracy demonstrations in that nation has fueled the desire to leave. Lines began forming outside the commission at 6 a.m., eventually snaking more than a quarter-mile along the streets. Lim estimated 13,000 forms were distributed in the short time the booth was open. While many emigres have gone to Canada, Australia and the United States, Singapore is an attractive destination. The tiny city-state is. also predominantly Chineseand is only 1,500 miles away. Adding to the allure is the Singapore government's offer to allow interested people to register for immigration, but take as long as five years to actually move. This provides just the kind of insurance policy people here are demanding, without success, from Britain: a safe haven if things go badly after 1997. Most residents say they want to remain in Hong Kong, where they have roots and jobs, and will do so if they know they are assured they will be able to get out in case of catastrophe. most ot his $200,000 annual income from speeches.

"It's not something the NRA is pushing ... but there's an awful lot of disillusionment around the country," said Wayne LaPierre, an association official. A White House spokesman said Bush, a lifetime member of the NRA, had no intention of resigning. Petition drives to oust Bush are underway in 23 states and the District of Columbia, said Anthony Hilder, an Anchorage radio talk-show host who is leading the petition drive in Alaska. Antiabortion protest leader is captured ATLANTA The organizer of demonstrations that sought to disrupt abortion clinics last summer is in jail on charges stemming from those protests. Randall Terry, organizer of Operation Rescue, was arrested Monday while appearing at the annual Convention of the Christian Booksellers Association in Atlanta. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond. Terry, arrested with SS others last July 19 during the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta, is charged with failing to appear for a May 1 trial on three misdemeanor charges. Prosecutors said Tuesday that Terry faces another warrant, for failure to appear in court in February on four other misdemeanor charges. -; ' ' World report Suspected terrorist gets a reprieve From Chicago Tribune wires ATHENS A suspected Palestinian terrorist won't be extradited to the U.S. during the three-month duration of Greece's new conservative-Communist coalition government, the justice minister said Tuesday. Minister Fotis Kouvelis said the decision will be made by the government that emerges from elections in October. Mohammed Rashid, 39, is accused of planting a bomb on a Pan Am jet in 1982. A Japanese teenager was killed and IS other people were injured in the blast over Hawaii. Greece's Supreme Court on May 12 upheld the U.S. extradition order, but the justice minister has final say on all extraditions. The former Socialist administration postponed a decision on Rashid's extradition until after the June 18 general elections, which produced no clear winner. Group: Bombs were warnings to Saudis BEIRUT A previously unknown Arab group from West Beirut claimed responsibility Tuesday for two bombings in Saudi Arabia that stoked a fresh political dispute' over Islam's holiest pilgrimage. The group, calling itself "The Angry Arab Generation," distributed a statement to a Western news agency in which it said the blasts were a warning to Saudi rulers, whom it accused of recognizing Israel's right to exist and securing the Jewish state's interest in the region. The bombs, which killed a Pakistani pilgrim and wounded 16 others, hit the holy city of Mecca as a million Moslems approached the climax of their annual pilgrimage. Iran seized on the explosions to renew charges that Saudi Arabia was unfit to administer the holy shrines. U.S. photographer may be freed soon KABUL, Afghanistan An American photographer captured more than a month ago while traveling with Moslem guerrillas will be released before the weekend, a government source said Tuesday.
