The leaders of 12 South Pacific nations offered to send a delegation to Fiji to help solve the political crisis in that country after a May 14 military coup. Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke said he would lead a three-man delegation if Fiji's governor general, Penaia Ganilau, accepted an offer of assistance. Hawke, at a news conference in Western Samoa at the end of a meeting of the 15-nation South Pacific Forum, did not say whether Ganilau had responded.

Mechanical glitches are plaguing a trial run of the Army's chemical weapons incinerator on this Pacific island, but officials expect to finish destroying deadly stockpiles on schedule. It's been a rough first few months for the Johnston Atoll Chemical Agent Disposal System, the first of nine incinerators planned to rid the United States of its aging chemical weapons.
