DEATHS ELSEWHERE

October 11, 1997

Group Capt. Desmond James Scott, 79, New Zealand's most decorated World War II fighter pilot, died Wednesday in Christchurch, New Zealand. He had the rare distinction of being decorated by every country in which he served.

Bishop Aloisius Nobuo Soma, 81, a Roman Catholic bishop, Nobel laureate and human rights advocate, died Monday in Nagoya, Japan. A co-winner of the 1996 Nobel Peace Prize, he had long spoken out against Indonesian human rights abuses in East Timor.
