    Background: THE ISRAELI AIR HOSTESS WHO WAS INJURED DURING LAST THURSDAY'S ATTACK ON AN EL AL JET AIRLINER AT ATHENS AIRPORT IS MAKING A FAST RECOVERY IN HOSPITAL.

    THE HOSTESS IS 28-YEAR-OLD HANNAH SPIRA. DOCTORS AT ATHENS' POPULAR HOSPITAL SAY THAT MISS SPIRA IS WELL AND THAT SHE WILL SOON BE RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL. MISS SPIRA INJURED HER BACK WHEN SHE JUMPED THE EL-AL AIRLINER WHILE IT WAS UNDER ATTACK FROM TWO ARAB GUNMEN. SHE SAID THERE WAS PANIC AMONG THE PLANE'S PASSENGERS WHEN THE SHOOTING STARTED AND FELL WHILE TRYING TO ORGANISE THE EVACUATION OF THE AIRCRAFT.

    THE TWO ARABS ACCUSED OF ATTACKING THE AIRLINER WITH MACHINE GUNS AND HAND GRENADES WERE TAKEN BEFORE AN EXAMINING MAGISTRATE IN ATHENS TODAY. THEY WERE FORMALLY CHARGED WITH THE WILFUL MANSLAUGHTER OF ONE OF THE PLANE'S PASSENGERS; ATTEMPTED MASS MURDER; ARSON AND ILLEGAL POSSESSION AND USE OF ARMS EXPLOSIVES. THE PENALTY FOR WILFUL MANSLAUGHTER IN GREECE IS DEATH OR LIFE IMPRISONMENT.
