The purpose of this letter is to protest your paper's malicious and erroneous reporting which dealt with the bombing of the New York Trade Center building (Feb. 27). Your paper's decision to print, on the front page, that the act was credited to the "Serbian Liberation Front" and that a "ranking U.S. official" treated the claim as "credible" was a vicious attack on Serbian people everywhere. Omitted from the report was the fact that there is no such organization as the "Serbian Liberation Front" or that the Serbs have never sponsored a terrorist attack in the United States.

A tremendous underground explosion believed to be caused by a bomb shook the 110-story twin towers of Manhattan's World Trade Center on Friday, killing at least five people, injuring more than 600 and sending tens of thousands of workers fleeing for their lives down crowded smoke-filled stairs. The noon-hour blast blew a huge hole in the complex's basement garage, collapsing walls and ceilings into a commuter rail station below.

After a long hiatus in attacks against the United States, the explosion at New York's World Trade Center may signal the onset of a new phase of international terrorism, U.S. officials said Saturday. "This is our worst nightmare come true," said a U.S. counterterrorism official. "The issue is not just the bomb and the damage it did. The bigger problem is the precedent it set.

"History Returns to Haunt the Present" by Dr. Rita Rogers (Commentary, March 1) came as a breeze of fresh air in the midst of a stale stench of misinterpretations and lies about the Yugoslav conflict. Her objectivity is commendable, especially in time of prolonged anti-Serbian hysteria in the U.S. media. It strikingly stands out from attempts to accuse Serbs of all evils.
