Were Rome and Lod Massacres by Same Terrorist Organization?

ROME (JTA) The Arab
terrorists who attacked
Rome's airport, killing 30
people, and later another
two, may belong to the same
terrorist group responsible
for the massacre at Lod Air-
port in May 1972.
Italian Interior Minister
Paolo E. Taviani told parlia-
ment that the preliminary
investigation showed that the
group also may have been
responsible for terrorist ac-

Lions at airports near Zurich

and Athens. He cautioned
that this was speculative and
not yet substantiated.
The Japanese suicide squad
which flew from Fiumicino
Airport to Israel was believed
to have received supplies in
Rome. Italian security offi-
cials are trying to uncover
what they believe is a perma-
nent Palestinian guerrilla
base in Rome which includes
hideaway apartments, an ar-

Austrian authorities an-
nounced that they would beef
up police protection at Vien-
na's Schwechat Airport in an-
ticipation of new Arab ter-
rorist attacks because Austria
is still admitting Jewish emi-
gres from the Soviet Union
en route to Israel.
The announcement coincid-
ed with the terrorist outrage
in Rome, when five Palestin-
ian terrorists hurled incen-
diary bombs into a Pan
American jet, sprayed the
terminal with machinegun
bullets and hijacked a Luf-
thansa jet which eventually
landed at Athens.
According to reports from
Rome, most persons were
burned alive aboard the fire-
bombed Pan Am jet and
two others were mowed down
by bullets. The body of one
victim was thrown out of the
plane en route to Athens. The
Pan Am plane was re-
p o r t e d l y "devasted" by
flames and the bodies of the
victims charred beyond rec-
ognition.
The terrorists made their
machinegun and firebomb at-
tack after they were detected
by Rome airport authorities
carrying concealed weapons
aboard the Beirut-bound Pan
Am plane, apparently with
the intention of hijacking it
once in the air.
But they destroyed the
American plane instead and
seized a nearby West German
airliner, forcing at least 11
hostages to board it under
gunpoint. The pilot was
forced to take off and the
plane landed at Athens Air-
port after the hijackers were
refused permission to land at
Beirut.
The terrorists reportedly
threatened to shoot one hos-
tage every 10 minutes begin-
ning at 8 p.m. Athens time
unless the Greek government
surrendered two imprisoned
terrorists. But later, that
threat proved to be only a
ploy.
The Palestinian terrorists
finally were seized Tuesday
in Kuwait, where the plane
landed after a Damascus re-
fueling. The two imprisoned
terrorists they sought to free
remained in custody in
Greece.
The five being held in
Kuwait said they were proud
of what they had done.
Palestinian guerrilla leader
Yassir Arafat said he wants
the terrorists tried by a Pal-
estinian court and to be
judged by them. Morocco also
condemned the terrorists.
The attack at Rome airport
occurred three days after the
opening of the trial in Rome
of three Arabs arrested last
Sept. 5 in an aborted plot to
shoot down an El Al airliner
with ground - to - air missiles
concealed near the approach-
es to Rome airport. Two other
Arabs accused as accomplices
were released on their own
recognizance.
The U.S. State Department
related the "vicious attack"
in Rome to the Arab-Israeli
peace conference. "The U.S.
government deplores inci-
dents such as this at any
time," it declared, "and par-
ticularly at a time when a
peaceful settlement of the
Middle East question, a fac-
tor apparently in the minds
of the terrorists, is being
sought by many peace-loving
governments and individuals."
"This new outrage under-
lines the urgent necessity to
strengthen the civil aviation

security measures through-
out the world," it said in a
statement read to the press
by department spokesman
Paul Hare.
Department officials who
had long sought measures in
the United Nations and other
international forums to com-
bat such terror expressed
shock at the wanton killings
and carnage sown by the
Arab terrorists.
The UN General Assembly
last month postponed action
to next year on its special
committee's report for meas-
ures regarding terrorism.

"The committee was not
enthusiastic to do anything,"
the official said. "It was di-
vided with Arab or pro-Arab
elements arguing that action
against terrorists would de-
ter national liberation move-
ments."
