Troops End Viet Doctors Siege By RICHARD Associated Press Writer NHA TRANG, Vietnam (AP) A armed siege of a ...Vietnamese military hospital by an army doctor accused of kill- ing a hospital administrator was "ended today by four armored .vehicles and troops that blasted holes in the hospital compound. .South Violnamcsc military -headquarters said Capt. Ha Thuc Nhan, 35, the hospital's eye, ear, nose and throat spcci- -nlist, mortally wounded himself '-'with a shot in the head. But wit- .'riesses who saw the surgeon .said it wrs more likely Ihe falal bullet was fired from outside Ihe .compound, C At least three other persons- including an American Army bus driver caught by accident in a volley of fire dead as a result of the bizarre siege; Unconfirmed reports said that as many as 10 Vietnamese, mostly civilians, had been killed or wounded since the doctor barricaded himself in the hospi- tal last Wednesday. South Victnamisc headquar- ters in Saigon confirmed only that two Vietnamese civilians were killed in the Shootout. Informants here said Nhan's action apparently was toucher! off by his anger at being ac- cused of having shot and killed Maj. Tran Van Hicn, director of (he Nguyen Hue military hospi- tal here. The major's botiy was washed up on a Nha Trang beach last Wednesday. Nhan's alleged motive for kill- ing Hien was that the major was Ihe informants .said, asserting that Hicn had sold rice rations intended for Ihe hospital's 700 patients lor personal profit. Nhan, who was popular among other staff doctors and patients, resisted military police who sought to arrest him on Wednes- day, the informants said. Mian disarmed two policemen and took their gims, then rallied a number of wounded hospital patients lo begin the siege, Uro sources added. From Wednes- day night, until this morning, Nhan and his haps 25 in all, many of them armed with carbines and other all at- tempts by authorities to dis- lodge them from the hospital compound near downtown Nha Trang. Passers-by were fired on, Vietnamese officers said, as they drove past the hospital gate. Some of the armed pa- licr.ts fired from behind trees and cement walls along a road leading to a major street.

United 'Stale's over Israeli charges of Egyptian violations of Ihe Mid- dle East cease-fire along the Suez Canal. "As initiator of the proposal, the United Stales promised that neither side would be allowed to improve Its position through the she told a meeting of the HisUdrul, Israel's labor federation. "Only a few hours passed (sftcr the shooting halt look ef- -fcct Aug. 7) and already the Egyptians began violating the agreement, and Ihese violations are still sire said. "'Israel cannot concede on this Philadelphia Police Raids Draw Gunfire PHILADELPHIA other policeman was shot today, Ihe fifth in 36 hours with one of them dead, as officers in post- dawn raids exchanged gunfire with barricaded occupants of three buildings alleged to be headquarters of black militants. At least 14 men and women were arrested. The latest victim was hit In the leg when officers crashed through the door of a Black Panther Community Informa- tion Center located in the heart of North Philadelphia's ghetto, near the site of the 1964 street rioling. Inspector James Curran, lead- ing one. raiding team, said he pounded on the door, advised thai police officers were outside with'a warrant and demanded Immediate 'surrender. '.'We heard a scuffle and then a shotgun Curran said. "We knocked in a door and more shots were exchanged." Patrolman Frank Eckman was struck in the shooting and Curran told newsman lhal he and Capl. Robert Martin "re- ceived gunshot pellets in the face." No' one was injured in the raids at the other two places. On Saturday night a Fair- mount Park Guard was shot to death, and anolher wounded, in an atlat'k Police Commissioner Frank Rizzo called Ihe work of a band of revolutionaries. On Sunday night two highway palrolmcn were .wounded criti- cally just a.few blocks from the first west Philadelphia shooting they stopped a'n auto in slolcn car '-hnck. One of those hurt was Patrolman Thomas Gibbons, Jr., whose father was tile city's police commissioner from 1952 to 1960. The other was Patrolman James Nolan. Rizzo said he didn't believe the Saturday and Sunday night shootings were connected. Police have arrested three self-styled "revolutionaries" for the Saturday shootings, and are seeking three others. Rizzo called that incident an organ- ized act of violence by militants who had "set out fo, as they say, kill pigs." Rizzo said the conspirators had plotted to blow up a police station in West Philadelphia, not loo far from the University of Pennsylvania, with hand gre- nades allegedly stolen last year from the Army at Ft. Dix, N.J. Instead, he said, they switched the plans lo attack Ihe guard house near Cobbs Creek on. the western edge of Fair- tnpiint Park. Police said Ihree hand gre- nades and the pin of a fourth were found in the vicinity of Ihe guard house. The commissioner said two of the same type gre- nades had been used a year ago to damage 15 city vehicles, in- cluding police cars, in a West Philadelphia garage.

The trial was moved here from Abilene last June on a change of venue, but it slill look attorneys five full days lo select 12 jurors from the 81 they questioned. .Some prospective jurors said they had formed opinions from publicity they had heard about the case, but the majority were disqualified because they expressed objections to the death penalty, which the stale is seeking in the case.

Israel claims Egypt Is moving missiles into Ihe so-called for- bidden 30-mile-wide strip along both sides of the ca- ii.il where, according (o Ihe cease-fire agreement, no mill- lary materiel may be moved up at least for the 90-day duration of the truce. Mrs. Meir denied Israel .ac- cepted the cease-fire because Us air force could .not stand up to Soviet missiles in the Canal zone. This was a rebuff to Foreign Minister Abba Evan, who said Saturday that had Israel reject- ed tlie cease-fire, it would have lost its air superiority against .Egypt. In Jerusalem informants said the Israeli Cabinet appeared In a crisis, wllh doves and hawks in sharp dispute on whether to continue with the peace talks In New York in Ihe light of the Is- raeli charges.of Egyptian viola- tions. The Israeli delegate lo the lalks at U.N. headquarters is staying in Israel at'least until the middle of the week, await- ing the outcome of the Cabinet debate. Jerusalem Informants said some of the Cabinet minis- ters were seeking to close the gap of disagreement between (he doves and Defense Minister Moshe Dayan over whether to continue the talks in the light of the Israeli charges against Egypt. An Israeli newspaper reported thai Mrs. Melr would send aji- olher personal message lo Pres- ident Nixon urging the Ameri- cans to stop the Egyptians mov- ing missiles into the standstill zone of Ihe cease-fire line. The dally Maariv said she would do so in order to satisfy Dayan's misgivings. President Gamal Abdel Nas- ser of Egypl denied Israel's sev- en charges of violations Sunday. Radio Cairo claimed that state- ments by high Israeli officials indicated that Israel would quit the talks. Yoscf Tekoah, the Israeli am- bassador lo the United Nations, who flew lo Jerusalem last week after a day of Arab-Israeli meetings wilh the U.N. Middle East special envoy, Gunnar V. Jarring, reported to the seven- hour Cabinet meeting in'Jenisa- lem on Sunday. A spokesman said later Tekoah would remain in Israel for another Cabinet session Tuesday.
