In Tel Aviv, e state of alert
at Ben-Gurion Airport was
lifted after 'a uthoriti es
learned that the Air France
707 jet carrying the three
terrorists from Orly had
landed in Baghdad.
Israeli authorities con-
firmed that the plane had re-
quested permission to land
at Beirut airport but was re-
fused. The Lebanese authori-
ties blocked the runway with
vehicles and equipment mak-
ing a landing impossible. The
plane then headed eastwards
and after Damascus closed
its airport, landed at Bagh-

Iraqi authorities had re-
fused permission for the plane
to land, but the terrorists
falsely claimed they 'were
running low on fuel and
threatened to blow up the
plane. The terrorists were
arrested by the Iraqis.

Israeli circles were bitter
that the French authorities

the Orly terrorists. Saving
the lives of the hostages was

sources claimed that France
has become a safe place for
terrorists to operate because
they can be s u r e that

French Interior Minister
Michel Poniatovsky who- con-
ducted the negotiations with
the terrorists, said later "If
there had not been hostages
we could have treated the
affair otherwise. We would
have taken much more se-
vere steps."
Poniatovsky, who was in
constant contact with Presi-
dent Valery Giscard D'Es-
taing during the hours of ne-
gotiations and was assisted
by the Egyptian Ambassador
to France, Naguib Kadry,
told reporters afterwards that
French security police could
not be held responsible for
the terrorist actions at Orly,
the second terrorist attack in
less than a week on an El Al
plane at France's largest air-


"Without putting a police-
man on every square meter
we cannot avoid accidents of
this nature," he said. "The
number of police here is very
great. And they are efficient.
I remind you that as soon as
the first grenade was thrown,
the police and the Republi-
can. Guards reacted and shot
at the terrorists," the in-
terior minister said.

But Israel's Ambassador to
France, Asher Ben Natan,
said that the French govern-
ment's low key reaction to
the Jan. 13 bazooka attack
on an El Al plane in take-off
may have encouraged the
terrorists to strike again.
Poniatovsky on Tuesday or-
dered tougher anti-terrorist
measures at Orly and two
other French airports, in-
cluding orders to shoot at-
tackers- on sight, surprise
searches and X-ray of lug-
gage, and the use of special
commando troops.
The French press had high
praise Wednesday for Egyp-
tian ambassador Kadry for
his efforts in negotiating the
