    Background: A JORDANIAN COMMANDO OFFICER KILLED IN CLASHES WITH TOBACCO SMUGGLERS IN BEIRUT ON TUESDAY (MARCH 24) WAS BURIED IN AMMAN ON THURSDAY (MARCH 26). ON THE SAME DAY SEVEN COMMANDOS, WHO HAD BEEN KILLED IN AN AMBUSH BY RIGHT-WING LEBANESE GROUPS WHILE CARRYING THE JORDANIAN COMMANDO'S BODY BACK TO AMMAN, WERE BURIED IN BEIRUT AMID DEMONSTRATIONS CONDEMNING THE INCIDENT.

    THE COMMANDO BURIED IN AMMAN, LIEUTENANT SAID GHAWASH, HAD BEEN KILLED AFTER GUERRILLA GROUPS CORNERED TOBACCO SMUGGLERS IN A BUILDING IN BEIRUT AND A GUNFIGHT FOLLOWED. ARMED COMMANDOS AND MOURNERS ACCOMPANIED THE COFFIN CARRYING HIS BODY TO THE CEMETERY.

    IN BEIRUT THOUSANDS OF COMMANDOS AND SUPPORTERS ACCOMPANIED THE FUNERAL PROCESSION FOR THE SEVEN DEAD LEBANESE GUERRILLAS.

    THE MEN WERE KILLED IN THE MOUNTAIN VILLAGE OF KAHHALA ABOUT TEN MILES (15 KMS) EAST OF BEIRUT, WHERE RIGHT-WING GROUPS TWICE AMBUSHED THE FEDAYEEN FUNERAL CORTEGE.

    AT THE FUNERAL PROCESSION MOURNERS CHANTED "SHAME, SHAME" AS THE COFFINS WERE CARRIED THROUGH THE STREETS.
