World IN BRIEF : BRITAIN : Protesters Break Into Palace Grounds

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

British protesters opposed to nuclear weapons tests broke into the grounds of Buckingham Palace in a dramatic appeal on behalf of American Indians who live near the U.S. underground test site in Nevada. Police said 15 women and two men were arrested after the morning incursion by the Women's Nuclear Test Ban Network. A statement from the group said that it welcomes President Clinton's extension of a nuclear testing moratorium but wants a permanent ban.
