A 65-year-old man from Lebanon, who last week was arrested in Greece in connection with the hijacking of a TWA flight for more than thirty years ago, it turns out to be innocent-to-be. It’s going to be a persoonsverwarring. The man is once again a free man, says the Greek police.
The man was on a cruise ship to vacation on the Greek island of Mykonos, and was about to return to Turkey when his name was discovered by the authorities. On Thursday the police arrested him for his alleged part in the hijacking of TWA flight 847 in June of 1985.
