U.S. Ambassador John H. Kelly escaped unharmed on Thursday when his motorcade came under fire along a street jammed with midday traffic in Christian East Beirut. One bullet hit the hood of the armored limousine carrying the 48-year-old Kelly, but no one in the ambassador's three-car motorcade was hurt, according to police. The State Department, however, ruled out the possibility that Kelly was ambushed as part of an assassination plot. U.S.

Councilman John Kelly, a key figure on the tumultuous City Council, says his Irish blood has served him well in local politics. "There's an old saying that an Irishman's heart is not at peace unless he's in the middle of a fight," Kelly said. "That could be true." Kelly, who waged four campaigns before being elected to the City Council in 1986, now faces a fight: his first try at reelection. Because Councilman Ronald B.
