  • Description

    One of the hostages held by Iranian students in the United States Embassy in Teheran--a 21-year-old Marine--has been interviewed by an American television crew. The Marine, Corporal William Gallegos, told two NBC reporters inside the Embassy on Monday (10 December) that all the hostages were being well treated--but they wanted to go home for Christmas. The statement by Corporal Gellegos conflicted with earlier statements by U.S. President, Jimmy Carter, who claimed the hostages were being badly treated, threatened at pistol point, bound had and foot and punished for speaking. Corporal Callegos was on guard duty at the time of the Embassy seizure and he has spent more than five weeks in captivity so far. Now, he says he is missing his family in Pueblo, Colorado.
