    THREE BOMB BLASTS ROCKED CENTRAL TEL AVIV TODAY (WEDNESDAY) KILLING ONE MAN AND INJURING 59 PEOPLE, EIGHT SERIOUSLY. THE POPULAR FRONT FOR THE LIBERATION OF PALESTINE SAID IN BEIRUT THAT IT WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EXPLOSIONS. IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE BLASTS NEAR THE CITY'S MAIN BUS STATION, JEWISH YOUTHS ATTACKED PASSING ARABS. POLICE AND TROOPS MOVED IN TO PROTECT THE ARABS AND LATER DETAINED 50 OF THEM FOR QUESTIONING IN CONNECTION WITH THE EXPLOSIONS.

    THE EXPLOSIVE CHARGES WENT OFF AT INTERVALS OF A FEW SECONDS SHORTLY BEFORE MIDDAY. THIS IS A TIME WHEN THE BUS STATION IS NORMALLY CROWDED WITH TRAVELLERS.
