(Studio: Dan Rather) Report introduced.

(Johannesburg, South Africa: Allen Pizzey) Bombing of police station here and implications for apartheid police security discussed; African National Congress noted claiming responsibility for such incidents in the past. Irony in blast's timing due to President P.W. Botha's later announcement of conditional lifting of state of emergency powers examined. [BOTHA - (thru translator) claims violence has subsided enough to justify ending emergency powers.] Govt. said changing police laws thought compensating for lack of emergency status. [For. minister Pik BOTHA - is optimistic over possibility of negotiations with blacks.] [Parliament member Louis STOFFBERG - opposes lifting emergency powers.]
