The World

U.S. Deputy Secretary of State John C. Whitehead told a news conference in Tunis that Washington regrets the killing last month of Khalil Wazir, the PLO’s top military chief. “We confirmed . . . that the United States . . . found it a reprehensible action on the part of Israel and that we had absolutely no knowledge of the incident or participation in it,” he said. Pressed to explain whether this meant the United States now openly accuses Israel of the killing, he said: “Well, of course, none of us know for sure, do we? But we haven’t heard denials, so we can only assume.”
