A prominent Palestinian guerrilla commander was shot and seriously wounded by unidentified gunmen in the latest in a series of attacks on Palestinians in southern Lebanon. Security sources said that Hussein Haybi, a deputy of Palestine Liberation Organization Chairman Yasser Arafat, was attacked by gunmen at the Ein el Hilwa refugee camp near Sidon. Shia Muslim leaders accuse Arafat of fomenting trouble by trying to rebuild the PLO’s power base in southern Lebanon.
