The World : Lebanon Leader in Crash

A helicopter carrying Lebanese Prime Minister Rashid Karami made a forced landing in Beirut early today after an explosion on board, officials said. There was no immediate word on the fate of the Sunni Muslim prime minister, but military sources said that Interior Minister Abdulla Rassi suffered "critical wounds." The stricken Puma helicopter made a forced landing at the Halat military air base in the Christian heartland north of Beirut.
