In a major crackdown on a Palestinian terrorist organization in the United States, four reputed members have been indicted on racketeering charges that include the killing of a teen-age daughter of one of them to silence her, conspiring to murder Jews and discussing the possibility of blowing up the Israeli Embassy here. The indictment, unsealed Thursday by a federal grand jury in St. Louis, marked the first legal action against the shadowy Abu Nidal organization here.

Three members of the Abu Nidal organization, described by the State Department as the world's most dangerous terrorist group, were sentenced in St. Louis to 21 months in prison for plotting terrorist acts. The case was the first indication that a cell was operating in the country. Tawfiq Musa, 45, of Milwaukee, and brothers Saif Nijmeh, 35, of the St. Louis suburb of Bridgeton, and Luie Nijmeh, 30, of Dayton, Ohio, pleaded guilty in July to racketeering charges.

A suspected member of the Abu Nidal terrorist group said in a taped conversation that the organization could mobilize and train young people to "slaughter" 3,000 Jews in the United States, the FBI said Monday. Another alleged associate of the group agreed to blow up the Israeli Embassy in Washington and asked for a bomb, the FBI said in an affidavit filed at a federal detention hearing for that man, one of four suspected Abu Nidal members in the U.S. Midwest who were indicted last week.
