An early call again—the plane had landed in Beirut about 2:20 A.M.—their time. They had shot one hostage in the head & dumped his body out on the runway. In the confusion there where Nobbi Barries Shiites run the airport we would learn later that ten more terrorists boarded the plane. Before the night was over they were on their way back to Algiers where they released several Greeks on the plane in a trade for the one Greek who had helped them in Athens & who had been arrested. He went on board & joined his evil cohorts. Another 53 hostages again women were released. We’re down now to about 40 men—mostly American but then they released 10 men. Total on board now 3 crew & 30 men. And now for the 3rd time back to Beirut. I should have mentioned, on an earlier Beirut stop 10 men with Jewish sounding names were turned over to the Hisballah & the Amal who took them away as prisoners.
