A bomb exploded outside an apartment building in the Turkish sector of Nicosia early Tuesday, shattering windows but causing no injuries. The explosion occurred just after midnight. Alpay Durduran, an independent deputy in the unicameral Parliament of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, lives in one of the apartments where windows were shattered.

A car bomb killed three senior officials of the Palestine Liberation Organization in the Cypriot resort of Limassol on Sunday. The PLO, accusing Israel, vowed revenge. "They were murdered by the Israeli Mossad secret service," the PLO said in a statement from its Cyprus office. "This ugly new crime committed by Israeli intelligence will not pass without retribution. The people of Palestine and their revolution know how to teach the Israeli enemy a lesson they will not forget," it said.

The Palestine Liberation Organization on Tuesday warned it may retaliate against Israel for the killing of three officials of the guerrilla organization and the bombing of a PLO-chartered vessel on this Mediterranean island. The Cypriot government denounced the two attacks as "unacceptable and impermissible." The vessel that was attacked, the ferryboat Sol Phryne, had been acquired by the PLO as its much-publicized "ship of return."
