  • Description

    After her lawyers' passports had been revoked and she had been refused permission to leave JFK airport, New York for Jordan, Mrs Sirhan, mother of Sirhan Sirhan, the convicted assassin of Robert Kennedy, talked emotionally to reporters today about this week's hijackings.

    Mrs Sirhan, accompanied by two lawyers, decided to fly to Jordan in order to speak to guerrilla leaders. Having heard many conflicting reports on whether or not the guerrillas were demanding the release of her son, Mrs Sirhan wanted to find out for herself. She is also very concerned about the plight of the hostages. She said she hoped to use her position as the mother of one of the guerrillas's heroes, to persuade guerrilla leaders against killing the hostages.

    After her lawyer had spoken about the sudden refusal of the authorities to allow them to leave the country, Mrs Sirhan answered reporters questions.
