    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ 2): MRS MEIR: "What are they going to do when they'll be free, this young lady will go to a convent, she will get married and raise children, she will go back to a teaching position. Sheer nonsense. She will do it again. She will try to do it again. I don't know on which plane after this. It means these people will be set free but everybody knows that their objective is to kill Israelis, men and women and children, whether it's in a plane, whether it's in a bus, no matter where it is. This is what their organisation stands for."

    The statement came as Governments involved continued to seek a formula for the release of hi-jack hostages.

    The British Government have made clear that they are willing to release leila Khaled in exchange for hi-jack hostages when a suitable international solution has been worked out.
