    WHILE THE FATE OF PASSENGERS AND CREW ON THE AIRLINER HIJACKED BY JAPANESE STUDENTS HANGS IN THE BALANCE IN SOUTH KOREA, THE TWO SIDES IN TALKS AT THE KOREAN ARMISTICE VILLAGE OF PANMUNJON ARE STILL UNABLE TO REACH AGREEMENT ON THE RETURN OF EARLIER HIJACK VICTIMS FROM NORTH KOREA.

    WHEN THE MILITARY ARMISTICE COMMISSION MET FOR THE 299TH TIME IN PANMUNJON ON MONDAY (MARCH 30) -- A MATTER OF HOURS BEFORE SWORD-WIELDING STUDENTS HIJACKED A JAPANESE DOMESTIC FLIGHT IN A BID TO REACH NORTH KOREA -- NEITHER SIDE BROUGHT UP THE QUESTION OF THE HIJACK VICTIMS ALREADY DETAINED IN NORTH KOREA.

    THE VICTIMS WERE ON A SOUTH KOREAN INTERNAL FLIGHT THAT WAS HIJACKED TO THE NORTH LAST DECEMBER. THIRTY-NINE PASSENGERS ON THE FLIGHT WERE RELEASED THROUGH PANMUNJON ON FEBRUARY 14, AFTER BEING HELD FOR 65 DAYS IN THE NORTH.

    FOUR CREW MEMBERS AND SEVEN PASSENGERS ARE STILL IN NORTH KOREA. THE COUNTRY'S REPRESENTATIVES AT THE PANMUNJON TALKS HAVE CLAIMED THAT ALL ELEVEN HAVE ELECTED TO REMAIN IN NORTH KOREA AND HAVE REFUSED TO ALLOW THEM TO BE INTERVIEWED BY NEUTRAL OBSERVERS -- THUS HEIGHTENING FEARS OVER THE FUTURE OF THE JAPANESE HIJACK VICTIMS SHOULD THEIR STUDENT CAPTORS SUCCEED IN REACHING NORTH KOREA.
