    INTERPRETER: "In statements made by the occupational forces themselves, the airliner had descended its wheels and was about to land. They shot by military aircraft, therefore has to be taken as a premeditated mass murder and a statement that the "plane was presenting evasive manoeuvres after it showed every indication of landing, including the dropping of the wheels, is therefore to be understood (UNCLEAR) as a cover up for their crime."

    Background: In Libya on Saturday (24 February) the Libyan Minister for Information, Mr. Abu zaid Dmar Dorda, accused Israel of premeditated murder in the dawning of the Libyan airliner over sinel. 1??? people died in the crash.

    Mr. Dorda told a news conference in Benghazi that the Israeli action of intercepting the airliner and firing at it was "an act of air piracy and murder". He added that "no sane human being could believe the Israeli farce about the "plane incident".

    Mr. Dorda said that while Israel had alleged that the pilot had refused instructions to land, it had admitted that the Boeing's undercarriage had been lowered in preparation for a landing.

    The news conference took place as Benghazi was draped in mourning for the arrival of a special "plane bringing back the bodies of Libyans killed.

    Newsmen also heard a tape recording of conversation from the flight deck just before the crash.
