A BOMB EXPLODED on a main international railway in western AUSTRIA, damaging a stretch of track that has been used to transport U.S. tanks from Germany to the Persian Gulf. The moving of the tanks has angered many Austrians who say it violates the country's neutrality. The bomb bent the rails and left a six-foot crater under the tracks 30 miles northeast of Innsbruck. A second, unexploded bomb was found on a parallel track and was defused.
