WORLD IN BRIEF : LIBYA : Abu Nidal Reported Under House Arrest

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Palestinian terrorist Abu Nidal has been placed under house arrest by Libya in recent days, the New York Times reported. It said he has been confined to his compound near Tripoli as a result of Arab and Palestinian pressure to end his activities, which were becoming an obstacle to Arab diplomacy. Abu Nidal's organization, the Revolutionary Council of Fatah, is believed responsible for terrorist attacks that have killed or wounded hundreds since 1974.
