  • Description

    Just after dawn yesterday (Friday) the four Arab guerrillas who seized six hostages in the Israeli Embassy in Bangkok were flown out of Thailand aboard a chartered plane. They were guaranteed safe conduct after releasing the diplomats they had been holding hostage for more than 18 hours. The four men originally demanded the release of Arab guerrillas imprisoned in Israel in return for the lives of the staff of the Embassy in Thailand; they later settled for a safe conduct out of the country after long hours of negotiation with Thai officials and the Egyptian Ambassador to Thailand. Afterwards at the Embassy, the released diplomats to???d their story to the dozens of correspondents who flew into Bangkok to cover the story. The diplomats paid tribute to the part played by the Thai government in persuading the Arabs to depart without bloodshed.
