At least 150,000 workers will be brought into Armenia to help rebuild homes and public buildings destroyed and damaged in last month's earthquake, Deputy Premier Yuri Batalin announced. He added that a two-year rebuilding program will probably cost about $16.5 billion--much more than previously estimated. Batalin put the death toll in the Dec. 7 quake at 25,000, saying that figure is accurate to within 1,500. Half a million were left homeless and more than 100,000 were evacuated.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Coalition has arranged with Soviet officials to stage an international telethon that will aid earthquake-devastated Armenia. "We've signed an agreement between the Rainbow Coalition, the minister of culture, the minister of radio and television to have an international telethon on June 10," Jackson said. The program would link Armenia, Moscow and "perhaps Britain, and America to raise resources to build churches, houses, hospitals and schools."
