The bodies of four U.S. oil company employees shot in a highway ambush in Pakistan last week were returned to their families in Houston. Four coffins covered with U.S. flags were unloaded from a chartered jet at Ellington Field, placed in hearses and driven to a private hangar where about 50 relatives were waiting. Funerals for the men--Ephraim Egbu, Joel Enlow, Larry Jennings and Tracy Ritchie--are scheduled for Wednesday. All were auditors for Houston-based Union Texas Petroleum Holdings Inc.

Nearly two years after four American oil workers and their Pakistani driver were gunned down in a daring daylight attack, two Pakistani men were sentenced Saturday to die for the crime. A special anti-terrorist court convicted and sentenced Ahmed Saeed, 29, and Mohammed Salim, 39, for the November 1997 slayings in the port city of Karachi. The men also were sentenced to seven years of rigorous imprisonment for possession of illegal weapons.

Atlantic Richfield Co., the seventh-largest U.S. oil company, said Monday that its second-quarter profit fell 44% as the lowest oil prices in 12 years and the sale of its coal operations slashed revenue. Los Angeles-based Arco reported profit before gains and charges of $220 million, or 67 cents a diluted share, compared with net income of $390 million, or $1.19, a year ago. The company was expected to earn 68 cents a share, the average estimate of analysts polled by First Call Corp.

One American here is taking the next flight out. Another moved out of his house to a safer hotel. Another, who wants to stay, changed the route he drives to the office. At the American Club, the center of social life for the 2,400 U.S. expatriates living in Karachi, a paper sign tacked to the door summed up the mood: "Closed until further notice." A day after four Americans were slain here, the once-lively American community has closed itself off from its adopted home.

After sinking $50 million into a controversial project off the coast of Myanmar, Atlantic Richfield Co. said Tuesday that it is withdrawing from the troubled country, but denied that it was caving into international pressure to punish the increasingly belligerent military regime. Arco spokesman Al Greenstein said changing investment priorities, "not protests or events inside Myanmar," influenced the company's decision not to renew its second of two exploration leases when it expires in October.
