PLO Operates Airport Shops, Newspaper Says

From Times Wire Services

The Palestinian Liberation Organization has taken control of duty-free shops at several Aftican airports as a cover for smuggling arms for guerrilla attacks, a British newspaper reported.

The mail said PLO front organizations recently won concessions at three international airports in Africa. The locations were not given.

“Control of the duty-free shops gives PLO terrrorists the perrfect cover to smuggle firearms. . . around the world,” the newspaper reported Sunday.
