  • WORLD CUP BOMBING PLOT DISCOVERED; POLICE SAY THREAT REMAINS

              A plot by Islamic extremists to "mount a bombing
         campaign against this summer's World Cup" in France has been
         uncovered by police, according to Conradi & Scott of the
         LONDON SUNDAY TIMES.  World Cup brochures and a "large
         quantity of liquid explosives" were recovered during raids
         on houses in Brussels, France, which ended in the "arrest of
         seven suspected members of an Algerian terrorist group." 
         Raymond Kendall, British Director of Interpol, said that the
         men arrested in the raid, which occurred earlier this month,
         "appeared to be a support group" rather "than an active
         operational unit."  Therefore, security sources believe a
         threat to the World Cup "remains" (SUNDAY TIMES, 3/22).
