By now we know there are around 380 or 90 people on the plane & possibly 80 or more are Americans—one a naturalized citizen of Asian birth has been shot & thrown out on the tarmac.

We went for our next to last ride this trip. About half way our S.S. agents got a radio call for us to pull up—the motorized group trailing us would catch up—they had an emergency call for me on secure phone. I learned that the Pakistanis had captured the 4 hijackers and there had been shooting & a great many casualties—no figures as yet.

Later in day got more details—roughly 18 dead & 100 or more wounded. 2 of the hijackers were killed, 2 captured & there is a possible 5th. Ron & Doria arrived in afternoon & stayed for dinner. It was a nice visit.
