More violence in Africa kills six
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) — Police firing rubber bullets and shotgun blasts today battled what they called a large mob of stone-throwing blacks in northern Cape Province, killing six blacks and wounding 20, authorities said.
In Cape Town, the Rev. Allan Boesak, a leading opponent of apartheid, announced a mass march next Wednesday to the gates of Pollsmoor Prison, to demand the freeing of black leader Nelson Mandela, jailed for 21 years.
Residents of Soweto, near Johannesburg, said the army for the second day in a row was arresting youngsters who were on the streets, boycotting classes. Hundreds of parents, aided by clergymen, gathered at a main police station to locate their children, the residents said.
The Star newspaper reported without attribution that police today were holding “about 300” youngsters from Thursday’s operation. Police refused to say how many they held.
The fighting that killed the six blacks appeared to be one of the bloodiest confrontations in weeks as South Africa heads toward its second year of anti-apartheid rioting that has killed more than 600 people, most all of them black. The riots began in August 1984
The latest clashes were in a black area near Ahwal North. 316 miles south of Johannesburg, police said.
This was the second day of disturbances in the area, and police had said fighting between blacks and
police left another man dead there before dawn Thursday.
On Thursday. Boesak, a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church and president of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches, said that antiapartheid activists planned to hold a protest that would “turn this country on its head.”
Mandela, imprisoned for life after being convicted of planning sabotage, is head of the African National Congress (ANC), the main guerrilla organization fighting the white government.

BERUN (APi - A top West German intelligence officer, sought in a widening spy scandal, has crossed the border and requested asylum from the communist government, East Germany's official news agency said today.
Hans Joachim Tiedge, who had been West Germany's top counterespionage officer for East Germany, was the fourth person to disappear since Aug. 6. There are growing suspicious they also were East German spies.
Hans Joachim Tiedge, who for many years was in charge of counter-espionage rn the Federal Constitutional Protection Office of the Federal Republic of West Germany has crossed over into the East I German Democratic Republic and has sought asylum there,” .ADN said in its dispatch ADN said East German officials were reviewing his request for asylum. The news agency did not say when Tiedge had arrived in East Germany.
He had been missing since Monday.
Kart Rebmann, West Germany’s chief federal prosecutor, immediately announced that investigators were searching Tiedge’s home and that a formal spy probe had been opened against him.
The announcement came a day after West German officials said they had launched a major search for Tiedge. Reports had said he vanished Monday after calling in sick to work.
Colleagues could not reach him at home by telephone, and family members could not locate him. said Hans-Gerd Lange, a spokesman for the Constitutional Protection Office.
Earlier today, the Cologne Express newspaper reported that Tiedge had been in charge of surveillance of one of the other three people who disappeared, a bookkeeper for a lobbying group
The bookkeeper. Ursula Richter, did not show
up at work Monday. The newspaper, quoting unnamed “security experts," said she may have fled after being tipped off by Tiedge.
Alexander Prechtel. a spokesman for Rebmann, had said that as of Thursday Tiedge was not under
suspicion of spying.
Chancellor Helmut Kohl issued a warning to East Germany about possible damage to relations between the two countries because of espionage. "Those in East Germany who are interested in good neighborly relations with West Germany should consider the effect on us ... of spying," Kohl said in an interview with West German television.
•‘Espionage is bound to sow mistrust." said Kohl, who also called for West Germany to strengthen counter-intelligence and improve security.

After visiting survivors. Mrs Thatcher told reporters.

Passengers trampled over each other as they tried to flee the raging flames and poisonous black smoke from burning upholstery in Thursday’s disaster at Manchester airport rn northern England

The London Times quoted one of the survivors as say ing There were loads of kids on board but everyone was trampling over everything and every body to get out. It was like being in hell ”

Thursday's disaster was the third involving a Boeing aircraft in the last two months. But Boeing 737s, which have been in service since 1967. have a good safety record.
