Renegade faction of PLO plans more terrorist acts

A renegade faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization is about to launch a new worldwide campaign of terrorism, Austrian Chancellor Bruno Kreisky said in an interview published in the Sunday Times.

Mr. Kreisky, described as the principal European friend of the Palestinians, said that he was assured by PLO leader Yasser Arafat his organization was not involved in the Aug. 29 attack on a Vienna synagogue in which two people were killed.

"But the group that was responsible wants to destroy the moderates among the Palestinians and intends to start a new wave of terror here in Vienna, across Europe and throughout the world," Kreisky said.
