The World

November 29, 1987

Police arrested the most wanted fugitive in France--left-wing terrorist leader Max Frerot--after a shoot-out in Lyons that left one police officer wounded, officials said. Frerot, 31, was the last leader of the leftist Direct Action group still on the run, and his arrest was called a final blow to the organization born in 1979 of Communist, anti-capitalist ideals. The group was believed responsible for 80 bombing and shooting attacks that ended last February with the arrest of three of its other leaders.
