The girl, who was arrested at a London airport Saturday when customs officials found guns and ammunition in her luggage, Was identified by the U.S. em- bassy as Allison Thompson of -Santa Barbara.

There were Israeli warnings in Tel Aviv and Geneva that the truce may collapse unless it is kept by both sides. U.N. spokesmen in Cairo re- ported increasing numbers of cease-fire violations during the ast few days, including ar- illcry and tank fire, and Israel heavy exchanges with Syria along the Golan Heights Tont. In Geneva, where agreement was reported near on means ol disengaging Egyptian and Israe- li troops along the Suez Canal, Israeli sources said Israel was demanding strict application by viously involved in student poli- tics in Santa Barbara. The sources said Hakaoui was leader of the group which ap- parently planned to attack Mo- roccan diplomats or property after gathering in London There was no apparent link with known Arab guerilla groups, the sources said. Earlier British authorities said they believed the three were connected with an Arab guerilla cell assigned to attack British Zionists. Officials dropped this theory after further investiga- tion, but gave no explanation. Scotland Yard has imposed a security blackout on the case, declining even to officially iden- tify the three pending a decision on whether they will stand trial or be deported. Security Alert The group was discovered amid a national security alert for 'Arab terrorists who were believed planning a concerted attack aoainst targets in Britain. The sirl arrived at Heathrow airport Saturday on a flight from Los Angeles carrying five machine pistols and 150 rounds of ammunition in her luggage. Egypt of the cease-fire before there can be any final agree ment. Unilateral Fullback The well-informed Tel Aviv newspaper Ma'ariv said Israel had agreed to a unilateral withdrawal as a means of [breaking the deadlock in the j talks but there was no confirma- tion from official sources. Israeli Defense Minister Moshe off for Washing- ton for talks with Secretary of State Kissinger and Defense Secretary Schlesinger, told newsmen: do not believe that the Egyptians hope for better terms by those actions or whether they want to start another war of at- trition, but I do believe that this is plain wildness and it is un- bearable.
