    ABOUT 5000 PEOPLE ATTENDED THE FUNERAL IN BEIRUT YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) OF A COMMANDO KILLED IN JORDAN LAST MONTH. A 24-HOUR CURFEW IN FORCE IN OTHER PARTS OF THE CITY WAS LIFTED FOR THREE HOURS WHILE THE FUNERAL WAS UNDERWAY.

    THE MOURNERS SHOUTED SLOGANS SUPPORTING COMMANDO ACTION AND WAVED BANNERS AS THE PROCESSION - LED BY MOSLEM LEADERS AND CHRISTIAN PRIESTS - FILED PAST THEM. SECURITY FORCES MARCHED BEHIND TO MAINTAIN ORDER.

    THE CURFEW WAS IMPOSED LAST WEEK AFTER CLASHES BETWEEN SECURITY FORCES AND DEMONSTRATORS DEMANDING FREEDOM OF COMMANDO ACTION AGAINST ISRAEL FROM LEBANON.
