TUESDAY, AUGUST 20. 197-1 ASSOCIATED PRESS, I'PI, -NEW YORK TIMES By Associated Press Warrants were issued in Nico- sia Tuesday for the arrest of three persons in connection with the slaying of the U. S. ambassador to Cyprus, Rodger Davies. Davies was killed during an anti-American riot at the em- bassy in Nicosia on Monday, and Greek, Turkish and Cypriot leaders expressed shock and abhorrence over the slaying. The names of the three suspects and further details of the police investigation into the riot were not disclosed in an of- ficial Greek Cypriot government statement, announcing the issue of the warrants. Diplomatic sources in Nicosia, contending Davies was deliberately assassinated, said all of the 40 or more shots fired at the building were aim- ed either at Davies' office or his apartment.

A Greek air force source in Athens said France has flown 44 Mirage jets to Greece for the Greek air force in addition to military equipment already shipped to Greece in the 1 a s t month. But a spokesman for the French embassy in Athens denied the planes were shipped. The civilian government in Greece increased its authority over the military by firing tlr? commander-in-chief of the arm- ed forces and his eight top of- ficers and replacing them with foes of the ousted military junta. Secretary of State Kissinger said Turkey had expressed will- ingness to negotiate a with- drawal from part of the 40 per- cent of Cyprus its troops have occupied.
