U.S. officials said thej- had received reports that two of thCj American boats, including the one taken into port, u-ere damaged by the gunfire. ' Both the W'hitc House and the State Department showed concern over the reports. Neither said it could confirm them immediately. The White House said if reports of the incident were correct, ""wc would of course look on this matter with utmost concern." Ronald Zicgler. White House press secretary, said President Nixon was looking into the report of the latest of a series of incidents involving U.S. ttma fleets off Peru. Rep. Thomas M. Pelly, R- Wash.. said the two vessels, which he identified as the; Mariner and the San Juan —; both believed to be out of Sani Diego, Calif. — were fired onj and damaged by Peruvian i gunboats. • The .Marine was then taken into a Peruvian port, Pelly said. At last report, he said, the San' Juan had been chased into' waters daimed by Ecuador. j Pelly said the reports, from; San Diego, placed the Mariner 23 miles at sea when attacked.) Hie San Juan, he said, was last reported trving to out run a Peruvian gun boat and been pursued to a point 15 miles within waters claimed by Ecuador. Several Latin American coun-! fries claim jurisdiction up to 200' miles out to sea. The claims arc not recognized by the United States which recognizes the traditional three mile territorial waters and an additional nine miles as a fishery zone. I 4tforney describes %\Thm 'He had no control at time Kennedy shot' LOS ANGELES (UPH-Sir- han B. Sirhan was intoxicated and in a "trance in which he had no voluntary control" at the moment wten he fatally wound- i ed Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, thei I defense said at his murder trial 1 I today. I I Defense Attorney Emilc Zola| ! Herman put before the jury of; eight men and four women thei first solid account of the' defense that the Arab immi-' grant will offer in an attempt to avoid the California gas chamber. Herman traced Siiiian's life in: Palestine before coming to this country and told of terrible scenes of violence which left such an effect upon hisi personality that he was subject tr fantasies and out of touch with reality. "Sirhan will tcU you himself from this witness stand that hC| never thought he ever would killi Kennedy but through his mystic mind power be could fantasize and relieve ttiat feeling of emptiness inside him," the New York attorney said. "Through chance, a weird change of circumstances, and while in a disturbed menial state, into.\ieated and confused, he had the same spells that he had in Palestine. 'Hicre is no' doubt and we have told you this from the bcgiiming. that he did,: in fact, fire the shot that killed j Senator Kennedy. The killing' was unplanned and undeliber-^ ate. impulsive and without premeditation or malice, totally! a produce of a sick, obsessed] mind and personality. ' "At the actual moment of the' shooting, he was out of contact i with reality, in a trance in which he had no voluntai^ control over his will, his judgment, his feelings or his actions. I do not expect, nor is if my desire that you accept my. statement as evidence. I tell you these matters because we will prove them through great imen in the fieWs of psychiatry' and psychology—by tests that run the gamut of hypnosis, interviews and known and accepted psychological tests and I testing procedures." Herman said that evidence- n-ould disclose the defendant is "an immahire, emotionally disturbed and mentally ill youth." The defense, however, has not entered a p/ca of insanity to the charge of first degree murder. Herman said today testimony i wotild show that Sirhan did not: have the mental capacity for murder — to maturely andj meaningfully premediate, dc-; liberate or reflect upon the gravity of his act, nor form an intent to kill, nor to harbor malice aforethought. Herman traced Sirhan's life. He said Sirhan was 3 years old when war broke out between Palestinian Arabs and Zionists in Palestine in 1M7. "It was then that shooting took place on the ver>' street where he lived in Jerusalem. In fact, that street became a dividing line between the Jews on one side and the Arabs on the other. "One night the building he lived in became a machine gun nest, on another night, his very home was bombed. "On the Saturday before Easter of IMS. Sirhan, his mother, father, brothers and sister crawled out of their itome in the early dawn with gunshots all about them to a temporary safety in an Orthodox Christian convent in another part of the city. "They never went back. They lived with other uprooted Arabs in a hungry, war-torn, violent (Continued on Page 2) Egyptian paper hits Ui. press on Sirlian case CAIRO (UPI)—The scmioffi cial newspaper Al Ahram today Demonstrations continue on nation's college campuses By United PrMi IntamitieiMl The tear gas dissipated, a FIRST WITNESS — First witness arrives.
