  • Description

    Two Algerians, removed from a British Overseas Airways Corporation aircraft in Israel two months ago arrived in London today (Wednesday) after their release this morning by Israeli authorities. The men were alleged by Israel to have been Algerian security officials. They were today put aboard a London-bound aircraft at Lydda airport - virtually the same flight they were removed from in Israel.

    The release of the men followed intensive diplomatic pressure between Israel and Britain. When the Algerians arrived in London tight security precautions were enforced, and the men were quickly ushered to a waiting police car which drove them directly to their hotel.

    The men remained only a short time in London, and before flying on to Algiers they were interviewed by officials of the Algerian embassy.
