Soviet missiles seen at Kabul Airport

Soviet ground-to-air missiles were seen for the first time at Kabul Airport Thursday although tension appeared to be easing in the Afghan capital after last weekend's suppressed civil insurrection.

Meanwhile, almost all shops in the city had reopened after a six-day strike in protest against the Soviet military presence in Afghanistan.

Diplomats in Kabul expressed strong skepticism about reports from Islamabad, Pakistan, that the government of President Babrak Karmal had begun executing Muslim leaders and rebels captured after the insurrection.
