Only 7 survive Japanese crash
KITA-AIKIMURA, Japan (AP) - A Japanese jumbo jet packed with 524 people crashed in the rugged mountains of central Japan on Monday. Seven survivors were found in the wreckage of what was believed to be the worst single-plane crash ever.
Identified survivors included two women, the 8-year-old daughter of one, and a 12-year-old girl. All were taken by military helicopter to a hospital in Fujioka, 25 miles east of the crash site, police said.
Hospital official Kiyomi Shinozaki said three other survivors were to arrive at the hospital soon, but he had no other details. The extent of
the survivors’ injuries was not known.
The Fuji Television network reported that at least 30 bodies had been found in the wreckage of the plane, which plowed into a mountain ridge while trying for an emergency landing Monday.
Initial reports from the first Japan Self-Defense Force teams to reach the site had indicated there were no survivors. But authorities later confirmed the finding of the four, and television pictures showed two on stretchers, dirty, battered and bandaged. They were identified as Mrs. Hiroko Yoshizaki, 35, and her daughter, Mikiko, 8.
Another survivor, Keiko Kawakami, 12, was said by Fuji TV to have been rescued from the branches of a tree. The fourth, a woman who was originally reported as a young boy, was identified as Yumi Ochiai, 26.
Three dozen helicopter-borne troops made a rope descent into steep, thickly forested mountain country Tuesday morning to reach the wreckage of the Japan Air Lines Boeing 747.
The jetliner crashed on a domestic flight from Tokyo to Osaka. The pilot, Masami Takahama, 49, had reported a door was broken, that he was fighting for control and
would try an emergency landing. There were 509 passengers and 15 crew members aboard.
JAL spokesman Geoffrey Tudor identified two of the Americans on board as Edward Anderson, 47, Englewood, Colo., and Michael Hanson, 40, Aurora, Colo. Both were employed by Stearns Catalytic Co., Denver. Neil McLagan, a Sterns vice president, confirmed that Anderson and Hanson were on the flight.
Later, airline spokesman S. Yoshida identified the four other Americans as Ward Wallach and three members of a family, Mrs. Okja Rim, Scott Rim and Christopher Rim.
Death toll tops 600 in South Africa
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) - The home of Winnie Mandela, wife of the South Africa’s top jailed black leader, was burned down, her lawyer said today.
Mrs. Mandela was not in her home at Brand-fort, a remote black township in the Orange Free State, when the fire broke out late Monday or in the early hours today.
A week ago, the house and an adjoining medical clinic were badly damaged in a police raid, lawyer Ismail Ayobsaid.
No information was available immediately on how the fire started.
Meanwhile, the unofficial death toll in nearly
a year of unrest in South Africa topped 600. Police said arsonists hurled the body of a black man wounded by police gunfire onto a burning truck during serious overnight rioting near East London.
The man was burned to death “as a result of this barbaric act," a police statement said.
In racial violence across the country Monday, six blacks were killed.
Three bullet-riddled bodies were found in Durban, and reports said an Indian shot and killed another black man. Fighting between Indians and blacks that began last week has claimed 67 lives in Durban.
At the University of the Witwatersrand in Johnnesburg, 32 white students were injured Monday and eight were arrested when police dispersed protesters at the start of a three-day protest. The students followed the lead of white students in Cape Town who have boycotted
classes in support of black demands for equal rights.
Anti-government groups, meanwhile, spread their call for blacks to avoid white-owned businesses. In the black township of Rwa-Thema, east of Johannesburg, witnesses said police went from house to house Monday morning, forcing students back to the schools they had been boycotting. Students said that those who refused were beaten with rubber whips.
For months, young blacks have boycotted classes in areas hit by anti-government rioting.
In Pretoria, thousands of black workers heeded a general strike call that lasted from Saturday to Monday, as well as a consumer boycott that is to last until Aug. 28. news reports said.
The boycotts have seriously affected sales of white-owned shops in Pretoria and Johan
In Cape Town, 14 anti-apartheid groups appealed for a boycott of white-owned shops beginning Wednesday. A boycott that began in the eastern Cape province a month closed has closed many shops in that riot-torn region.
Anti-apartheid groups see consumer boycotts as a means of making blacks aware of their grievances without resorting to violence.
On Monday, U.S. Rep Stephen Solarz, D-N.Y., said he came away “profoundly pessimistic about the prospects for peaceful change" in South Africa after a meeting with President P W. Botha.
Police reported 1,623 activists have been detained without charge under the state of emergency imposed July 21 in 36 black townships. They say 6% have been released

ATLIT, Israel (AP) — Three buses carrying 101 prisoners, most of them Shute Moslems, left a northern Israeli military prison today and headed for freedom in lebanon.
The prisoners, captured by the Israeli army in southern lebanon, were among those whose release had been demanded by Shutes who held 39 Americans hostage for IT days after hijacking a TWA jet June 14.
Israel rejected the demand, saying it would free the inmates gradually if the security situation in south

lebanon remained calm. The Jewish state has maintained the prisoner release is not related to the TWA hijacking.
Dressed in blue and white tracks suits, the prisoners had their hands held behind their necks before boarding the buses, which had the shades drawm.
Inside, their hands were tied with plastic cord. But some were able to flash a V-for-victory sign at news photographers who stood outside the
The buses were not traveling directly to the border some 30 miles away, but were to take a circuitous route for security reasons, military sources said.
The inmates, who military sources said also included some Palestinians, are the third group to be freed since the hijacking. About 230 prisoners now remain at Atilt, a prison compound near the Mediterranean Sea 50 miles north of Tel Aviv.
