A California woman protesting government financing of the Persian Gulf War drove a van she claimed contained explosives through a gate at the United Nations Saturday morning, parked in front of the 38-story Secretariat building, doused herself with gasoline and threatened to ignite herself. As of early this morning, police hostage negotiators still were trying to talk the woman, tentatively identified as Linne Gunther, 41, of the Bay Area community of San Lorenzo, out of the van.

Trans World Airlines' international terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport was evacuated for an hour Saturday after shoes in a passenger's bag were found with traces of nitrates--a compound found in both bombs and fertilizer, officials said. The terminal was evacuated at 4:25 p.m. EST when an X-ray screening device showed the potential of a bomb and a bomb-sniffing dog confirmed the machine's suspicions.
