(Studio) Christians begin attacks on mts. east of Beirut; mts. are last leftist foothold in south Lebanon where Christians control 800 square mile Biggest Christian victory so far is fall of Tell Zaatar Palestinian refugee camp on Thursday
REPORTER: Bob Schieffer

(Tell Zaatar, Lebanon) [Film shown was taken Friday after fall of camp.] Conditions of bldgs. described. Most of dead in camp young men killed in combat or executed by Christians as they took over camp. Fate of others who were captured is unknown. Camp being stripped of all goods that weren't blown up and can be used. Death toll unknown. For now right wing seems content to raise Lebanese flag over area they claim was being misused by Palestinians, though they talk of opening new front.
