  • Description

    In Brighton, England on Saturday (19 December) two former hi-jack victims found a happy ending to their story. They were wed.

    Leslie Pressley, and her bridegroom Ali Al Sharrif, from Bahrain, were aboard the BOAC VC-10 hi-jacked by Arab guerrillas three months ago.

    Ali's nationality guaranteed his early release from the desert strip where the guerrillas kept their hostage, but he demanded Leslie's freedom as well, producing the wedding ring he had bought for Saturday's ceremony. The guerrillas later agreed to release them both.

    There were many photographers outside the Brighton Registry Office to see the newly-married couple leave on a honeymoon which will be spent in Majorca.
