A judge, disclosing that he had been threatened, today revoked $300,000 bail for the man accused of killing Rabbi Meir Kahane at a Manhattan hotel on Nov. 5. State Supreme Court Justice Alvin Schlesinger believed that there was a strong likelihood that El Sayyid Nosair, 35, a native of Egypt, would flee. Among Schlesinger's reasons was a passport Nosair held in a different name.

The New York Times in today's editions quoted an unnamed law enforcement source as saying that the accused, El Sayyid Nosair, was taking Prozac. Several lawsuits are pending against the drug's manufacturer, Eli Lilly & Co., which has denied allegations that the drug can induce suicidal or homicidal behavior.

A federal appeals court in New York City upheld the convictions of Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman and nine of his followers. The court ruled that the radical Islamic cleric who inspired his followers to try to blow up some of New York landmarks and assassinate Egypt's president was fairly prosecuted under a rarely used charge from colonial days. The blind cleric was prosecuted because he sought to "solicit or persuade others to commit crimes of violence," the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals said.
