Lebanese army troops raided Sidon's old bazaar Sunday and arrested about 60 people wanted for burglary, smuggling or drug dealing. On the outskirts of the port, Palestine Liberation Organization fighters continued to turn over antiaircraft guns, multibarrel rocket launchers and heavy machine guns to the army. The roundup of wanted criminals was the first time that security authorities in Lebanon were able to crack down on the bazaar in Sidon's old quarter since civil war broke out 16 years ago.

Ten people were killed and 25 wounded near Sidon, Lebanon, in fierce fighting between gunmen loyal to renegade Palestinian leader Abu Nidal and Palestine Liberation Organization guerrillas. Abu Nidal's Fatah Revolutionary Council was fighting hard to keep control of its headquarters inside the Ain el-Hilweh refugee camp, security sources said. The PLO issued a death sentence against Abu Nidal 16 years ago after accusing him of plotting to kill its chief, Yasser Arafat.

The Lebanese Parliament has canceled an accord giving the Palestine Liberation Organization permission to attack Israel from Lebanon. The formal abrogation of the accord with the PLO becomes effective when Parliament's measure is signed by President Amin Gemayel and released as a presidential decree, officials said Friday. All 44 deputies in Lebanon's 99-seat Parliament who attended Thursday's session voted in favor of abrogating the deal as "null and void."

Syrian-backed Palestinian guerrillas took up positions facing Christian areas in eastern Lebanon amid reports that a large-scale military confrontation in the war-torn country is imminent, police officials said. About 500 soldiers from the Palestinian Liberation Army--backed by tanks, mortars and jeep-mounted cannons--set up artillery batteries in the village of Yammunah, about 35 miles northeast of Beirut, the officials added.

Less than two months after taking steps to patch up their longstanding quarrel, Syria and the Palestine Liberation Organization have failed to make any progress toward a reconciliation. The failure is significant, according to Western diplomats and Arab officials, because both sides had hoped to attend the Arab summit conference in Algiers next week with an agreed joint strategy on how to support the Palestinian uprising in the Israeli-occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
