    Background: LONDON, ENGLAND

    There are signs that the American hostages being held in Iran could soon become their way home. One stumbling block to an agreement has been the recovery of billions of dollars of Iranian assets frozen in the United States.

    The drama began when a U.S. Air Force jet landed at London's Heathrow airport. Eight senior American officials were joined by two English officials. They were charged with negotiating the return of the frozen Iranian assets. The U.S. team was led by the Deputy legal Adviser at the States Department, Mr William Lake.
