  • Description

    A diplomatic furore could blow up around the American U.S. Navy deserter and his Guatemalan girl companion who Hijacked a Boeing 707 airliner on a 7,500 miles (12,000 Kms) trip through Latin America. They surrendered themselves in Buenos Aires on Sunday, (4 July) following assurances that they would not be shot when they left the aircraft, and are now in the custody of Argentinean police.
    A U.S. spokesman said his country would ask for the extradition of 36-year-old Robert Lee Jackson, of Alcoa, Tennessee, but Argentina Federal Police Chief General Monie told a press conference on Sunday that Jackson would stand trial in Buenos Aires.
    The two hijackers seized the Boeing over Texas and forced it to fly the length of South America in a desperate bid to reach Algeria. They touched down at Monterrey, Mexico, and at Lima and Rio de Janeiro.
