    Bookseller Salah Safadi admitted at a State Security Tribunal in Amman, Jordan, December 3, that he was offered 10,000 dinars to plant the time-bombs that killed Premier Hazza Majali and 12 others last August 29. Safadi and 15 others were charged with murder and destruction.

    Eleven of them face the death penalty - the other five face prison sentences of between 15 and 20 years. Seven of the man are being tried in their absence; the court being satisfied that they were summoned through press and radio to defend themselves.

    Safadi said he began working for the Syrian authorities in 1958 when a Jordanian fugitive paid him 1,500 Syrian lires a month in Damascus, United Arab Republic, to launch a whisper campaign against Jordan. He said he went to Damascus later to meet the fugitive, Zakharia Attaher, and Syrian Special Security Brigadier Adham. The trial continues.
