  • Description

    ALGERIA TODAY (SATURDAY) RELEASED TEN ISRAELI WOMEN AND CHILDREN DETAINED SINCE THEIR EL AL AIRLINER WAS HI-JACKED BY PALESTINIAN GUNMEN AND FLOWN TO ALGIERS LAST TUESDAY. THE SEVEN WOMEN AND THREE CHILDREN WERE PUT ON A SWISSAIR CARAVELLE AND THEY DISEMBARKED IN GENEVA. THEY LOOKED WELL AND CHEERFUL AFTER THEIR DETENTION IN ALGIERS.

    THREE OF THE SEVEN WOMEN WERE EL AIR-HOSTESSES. ONE OF THE HOSTESSES SAID THAT THEY HAD BEEN WELL CARED FOR. THEY HAD BEEN INTERROGATED BUT NOT ON POLITICAL MATTERS. ONE OF THE WOMEN PASSENGERS WAS AN 18-YEAR-OLD RETURNING FROM HER HONEYMOON WITH HER HUSBAND.

    TWELVE ISRAELI MEN FROM THE HI-JACKED BOEING 707 ARE STILL BEING DETAINED IN ALGIERS. THE 23 NON-ISRAELI PASSENGERS ABOARD THE AIRLINER, WHICH WAS FLYING TO TEL AVIV FROM ROME, WERE RELEASED EARLIER. THE FATE OF THE 12 MEN BEING HELD IS STILL UNKNOWN. ALGERIA AND ISRAEL HAVE BEEN FORMALLY AT WAR SINCE THE MIDDLE EAST CONFLICT IN JUNE, 1967.
