Abul Abbas, the mastermind of the Achille Lauro cruise ship hijacking five years ago, said Sunday that Libya has expelled 145 members of his radical group and closed down four training camps. Abbas said the move was a surprise to him and his wing of the Palestine Liberation Front, considered to be a major terrorist organization. He said the ejection was unjustified and urged Libya's leader, Col. Moammar Kadafi, to reopen the camps and the group's offices.

The State Department on Monday supported Israeli charges that Libya gave "crucial support" to a seaborne guerrilla raid launched by Palestinians against Israel last May 30. But the department concluded in a white paper that the foiled attack was a terrorist operation directed primarily at beach-goers, not a raid aimed at military targets, as suggested by Israeli military authorities.
