Background: The Jordanian envoy held hostage by Black September commandos darned the Khartoum embassy siege returned to Adman yesterday (Friday) to submit a detailed report on the outrage. Mr. Adli Al-Nasser, Jordan's Charge d'Affaires in Khartoum, was one of the two hostages who escaped the siege alive. Three western diplomate wore shot by their palestinian captors.
Immediately after his arrival in Amman, Mr. Al-Nasser had talks with Jordanian Foreign Minister Salsh Abu Zeid. Later, he was due to have audience with King Hussein.
SYNOPSIS: In Amman, the lone Jordanian survivor of the Khartoum Embassy siege and massacre returned home on Friday.
The survivor is Mr. Adli Al-Nasser -- on the right. In Amman, he at once reported to Jordanian Foreign Minister Salah Abu Zeid, giving a full account of the sixty hour ordeal, when his life was held to ransom by Black September commandos. There diplomates from Western countries were killed during the siege. But Mr. Al-Nasser, the Jordanian Charge d'affaires in Khartoum, was freed alive together with the Saudi Ambassador. One of the unanswered demands of the commandos was that Jordan should release captive Palestinian leaders. They refused -- and Foreign Minister Abu Zeid later condemned the Khartoum killing.
