The radio, in a broadcast heard here, announced a communique from the Iraqi Revolutionary Com- mand saying the plot against the camp at Rashid this morning was put down in hall an hour. The broadcast gave no details of the action and did not mention what, .if-any, casualties were suf- fered. "A Communist plot staged by some Communists and agents to seize Rashid camp was crushed at dawn in a half hour by our military forces, the national guard, the police and the a com- munique from the Iraqi revolution- ary government said. Strength Shown The swiftness with which the at- tempted coup at the camp was foiled showed how strongly "the revolutionary regime is in con- trol, the broadcast said. The communique said that a special committee was questioning the "detained agents." A 'later broadcast reported the execution by hanging of three accused of partici- pating in a revolt in Mosul, in northern Iraq, in The Iraqi revolutionaiy govern- ment, which came to power last Feb. 8 in a military coup, report- edly has been conducting a cam- paign to eliminate Communists in Iraq. The Reds backed former Premier Abdel Karim Kassem, who was ousted in the coup and later executed. Lenders Pro-Nasser The February uprising under the leadership of a six-man junta was led by Lt. Col. Abdul Karim Mustafa. The junta named a "transitional" government with Abdul Salam Mohammed Arif as president and Maj. Gen. Ahmed ITassen el-Bakr as premier.

Red China Accuses Kremlin MOSCOW (UPI) Communist China circulated a Foreign Min- istry note in Moscow today ac- cusing the Kremlin oE trying to obstruct Sino-Soviet negotiations scheduled to start here Tbe Chinese Embassy distrib- uted copies of the note to the embassies in Moscow of countries with whom Peking has diplomatic relations. The note, which was released earlier in Peking, dealt with the Soviet expulsion of three Chinese diplomats and two students for circulating in Moscow a harsh at- tack on Russian policy. Colls Action "Unfounded" Calling the Soviet action "un- tenable and the Chi- nese note accused the Soviet Un- ion of deliberately trying to worsen relations between the two countries virtually on the eve of the Moscow talks aimed at heal- ing their ideological and political split. Until how the Kremlin Has said nothing about the expulsion of the Chinese, leaving the an- nouncement to Peking. Diplomatic observers said dis- tribution of the note by the Chi- nese under the nose of the Krem- lin was certain to cloud the at- mosphere for the talks. Not Bucking Down The Soviet Union indirectly served notice today it will not hack down -in the face of Peking's belligerent line toward other Communist countries and the West. Premier Nikita Khrushchev was reported to have congratu- lated Marshal Tilo upon his re- cent confirmation lo the presi- dency of Yugoslavia. One of the basic conflicts in the Sino-Soviet rill is the Chinese demand that Russia break with Yugoslavia, which Peking ac- cuses of "consorting with the im- perialists" and betraying the in- ternational Communist move- ment.
