French police arrested seven people, including a Los Angeles couple and an alleged Irish nationalist wanted for a Dublin murder, in connection with an illegal arms shipment from the United States, authorities said. Police sources said several of the arrests were made in Le Havre as members of the group took delivery of a motor home stuffed with weapons, including two submachine guns, 12 assault rifles, 23 pistols and 2,200 rounds of ammunition apparently destined for Irish nationalists in Northern Ireland. The couple from Los Angeles was identified as Mr. and Mrs. William Norton.
