BOMB IN SOUTH AFRICA KILLS WOMAN

A bomb exploded Tuesday in a crowded Planet Hollywood restaurant, killing one person and injuring 24. A man claiming responsibility said it was revenge for U.S. attacks on targets in Sudan and Afghanistan.

The caller to the radio station Cape Talk claimed responsibility on behalf of Muslims Against Global Oppression, according to Marianne Merten, a journalist at the station.

In Washington, the State Department described the group as anti-Jewish and anti-Israeli. Some members were among the 40 or so people who protested U.S. policies on Iraq and Israel during President Clinton's visit to Cape Town in March.

The nationalities of the woman killed and of the injured were not immediately known.
