    The two black boxes in TWA's Boeing 747 jet that crashed last Wednesday in the Atlantic Ocean near Long Island have not been found yet although investigations are continuing.

    United States President Bill Clinton announced yesterday that the up to date results do not lead to any conclusions for the causes of the plane's explosion.

    "Traces of chemicals were found," he stated, "although based on all the verbal and written reports that I get regularly it isn't possible to draw a safe conclusion on the causes of the plane's crash."

    Alexandria, July 24 (M.P.A.)

    The loss of Patriarch Parthenios of Alexandria and Africa has brought about the deep mourning of his congregation.

    The President of the Council of Greeks Abroad (SAE) Africa- Asia Chapter Stephanos Tamvakis spoke to the Macedonian Press Agency yesterday and stated that Mr. Parthenios' loss was one of the biggest that could ever exist in Orthodoxy.

    Turk-cypriot leader Rauf Denktash has reacted to this invitation since he is demanding that his side participate politically in the negotiations.
