By Kenneth Terrell Staff Writer A protest on the Onondaga Na- tion turned violent Sunday when police moved in to arrest people in a yard next to Interstate 81 shortly after the protesters had blocked the highway. State police part of more than 100 officers who arrived Sunday in not gear moved Into the yard f just south of NedroWaDd forcibly arrested people. Many of the pro- testers were hit with night sticks and pinned to the ground while their hands were cuffed behind their backs. A girl, who protesters later said old, cried as she was pinned to the ground by several troopers and arrested. A 14-year-old girl was removed from a car, handcuffed and taken away. Some protesters were injured but refused medical treatment, said Trooper Robert Heath. Two troop- ers, whose names were not re- leased, received minor injuries one was hit in the face and the other was bitten and hit with a board. In all, police arrested 24 people, including three juveniles. They face various charges including trespassing, resisting arrest and as- sault, police said. Today, three protesters kept a bonfire going that's been burning along 1-81 as a protest to a tempo- rary tax agreement the leaders of five Iroquois nation made with the state. They waved to motorists, some honking m return. On Sunday, more than 100 state troopers moved onto the Onondaga STATE, Page A12 Mobutu lands in Togo, one step ahead of rebels The Associated Press LOME, Togo Deposed dictator Mobutu Sese Seko was in Togo today, a day after fleeing rebels who had captured his jungle palace in northern Zaire, Togolese government sources replied. The dictator was resting in a residence belong- ing to his old friend, Togolese dictator Gnassmgbe Eyadema, the government officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity. Mobutu would not stay in Togo more than a few days, they said. His likely departure time would be clarified after he met with Eyadema this afternoon, when the Togolese dictator was due to return from a long weekend at his palace in northern Togo. They did not yet know his ultimate destination. That contradicted an earlier report on Togo state television that Mobutu had only briefly stopped in Togo on Sunday morning, on his way to Rabat, Morocco. The television reported that Mobutu, ailing Tmfb nrnct'jfr' finrw hart clmrvrl rvit of hoTDf village of Gbadohte late Saturday in a cargo plane just ahead of rebel leader Laurent Kabila's troops, and flown to Togo. The television report, citing the "Mobutu en- said Mobutu had been awakened by gunfire Saturday night and determined that rebel troops had entered his home village and were closing m on his palace. The rebels fired on the departing plane. Mobutu had fled from Kinshasa to Gbadolite on Friday morning. On Saturday, rebels marched into Kinshasa and gave Kabila victory in his sev- en-month war. A check of hotels showed that three of Mobu- tu's close advisers were also in the Togolese capi- tal Foreign Minister Kamanda Wa Kamanda, who had been rumored shot dead in Kinshasa; In- terior Minister Gen. Uunga Shamanga; and Hon- ore Ngbanda, his envoy to peace talks with the rebels. Eyadema had been one of the few international leaders to condemn Kabila for capturing the capi- tal of Kinshasa Mobutu's last stronghold in- stead of maintaining a South African-brokered di- alogue with Mobutu. The two dictators had led their countries since the mid-1960s, and both enjoyed the support of France another country that expressed its dis- g'easure with Kabila. French police prevented abila loyalists from taking over the Zairian em- bassy in Pans on Sunday. Moroccan officials said Mobutu was to stop briefly in Rabat, then continue on to a European destination, where he would wait out the French elections before continuing to France. A French Foreign Ministry spokesman said he was unaware of that report and had no immediate reaction. President Jacques Chirac could face embarrass- ment if his government accepts a man much of the world has come to regard as the brutal leader of a looting dictatorship. Mobutu, 66, has a lavish villa on the French Riviera, where he has spent much of the last few months recuperating from prostate cancer.

The anonymous donor once known only as Angel flew into Grand Forks for a tour of the flood- devastated cities she gave million to rebuild. A check of airport records showed that a Gulfstream IV jet registered to Mrs Kroc was refueled at the airport Saturday, the Grand Forks Herald reported today. Mayors of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks, Minn., said they gave the woman a tour but continued to identify her only as Angel. Sen, Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., later cohfirmed that Mrs Kroc was the mysterious donor. "It is one of the most generous and kind acts I have seen an individual he said. Mrs. Kroc asked officials in April to distribute to each family who suffered from the flood, which ravaged 90 percent of the cities She requested officials use a minimum of red tape and not reveal her name "She stated that the press should go to the people in need and not said Lynn Stauss, mayor of East Grand Forks. "She didn't want to take away from their story."
