Hijacker Freed
In Prisoner Swap

Geneva (JTA) — The hi-
jacker of an Air Afrique jet
who murdered a French
passenger here last week was
a prisoner in Israel who was
released in 1985 under an ex-
change supervised by the In-
ternational Red Cross. Hus-
sein Ali Mohammed Hariri,
21, a Lebanese Shiite who
reportedly has ties to other
Lebanese terrorists, was im-
prisoned in Israel in 1984 on
terrorist charges after being
found with a hand grenade.
According to Swiss officials,
Hariri, who commandeered
the flight from Paris to Braz-
zaville, Congo, is from a
Lebanese village near Tyre
considered a stronghold of the
Hizbullah, believed to be con-
nected to adherents of Iran's
Ayatollah Ruhollah Kho-
meini. His chief demand, ac-
cording to the Tribune de
Geneve, was the release from
West German prison of the
Hamade brothers, being held
for terrorist crimes. Swiss
sources have described Hariri
as being a "comrade in arms"
of the Hamadei brothers.
The West Germans have
said they will try Mohammed
Ali Hamadei, 22, in
Frankfurt Regional Court for
the hijacking of a TWA jet in
June 1985 and the murder of
U.S. Navy diver Robert Dean
Stethem. The United States
has unsuccessfully fought to
extradite Hamadei to stand
trial in the U.S. for Stethem's
murder. Hamadei was ar-
rested in January in
Frankfurt carrying three bot-
tles of liquid explosive.
Hamadei's brother, Abbas
Ali Hamadei, 26, was subse-
quently implicated in a rash
of kidnappings of more
Americans in Lebanon, as
well as of West German na-
tionals. The older Hamadei,
who is a West German
citizen, was then detained
and interrogate, leading
Bonn officials to a large cache
of liquid explosives in the
Saarland and on the French-
German border. West German
officials said he would stand
trial in federal court on
charges that may include his
complicity in the kidnappings
of two West Germans.
In addition, a third brother,
Mohamined Abbas Hamadei,
is believed to be security chief
of the suburbs.
Switzerland's president,
Pierre Aubert, who is also
Foreign Minister, said that
Hariri would be put on trial
for the hijacking and murder,
which took place at the
Geneva airport.
