    Background: An intruder mounted the rostrum of the General Assembly at the United Nations on Thursday (21 October), during an uproarious session triggered by a shooting incident at the Soviet mission to the U.N. in New York.

    The person who grabbed centre stage at the Assembly was a public relations man, Daniel McColgan. He tried to read a statement about the admission of the People's Republic of China -- the subject the Assembly has been debating this week.

    Guards hustled the man away to a police station, where he was charged with trespassing.
