WORLD : Officer Killed Defusing Radio Bomb

<i> From Times wire services </i>

A radio bomb confiscated from suspected Palestinian terrorists exploded at federal police headquarters today as experts tried to defuse it, killing one officer and critically injuring another.

A similar bomb disguised as a radio is believed to have caused the explosion that blew Pan Am Flight 103 out of the sky Dec. 21 over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing 270 people.

The blast occurred in a basement room of the federal police headquarters, spokeswoman Brunhilde Spies-Mohr said.
