ADEN, Yemen (AP) - An armed
man who wanted to show support for
Saddam Hussein hijacked a Yemeni
plane carrying the U.S. ambassador
and 90 other people yesterday and
diverted it to neighboring Djibouti,
where he was overpowered by the crew.
Passengers, including U.S.
Ambassador Barbara Bodine, exited
down the plane's emergency chute as
the drama ended.
Because of the hijacking, Bodine
missed an appointment with Yemeni
President Ali Abdullah Saleh at
which the deadly terrorist attack on
the USS Cole and increased security
cooperation was expected to have
been discussed. Bodine, who was
accompanied by other embassy staff,
flew from Djibouti back to the
Yemeni capital, San'a, later yester-
day. Aides said she would not com-
ment on the hijacking.
In Washington, State Department
spokesman Richard Boucher said
"really terrific action" on the part of
the crew, airline officials and Yemeni
authorities helped foil the hijacking.
The hijacker, armed with a small
handgun and possibly a grenade, was
subdued by members of the Boeing
727's seven-person crew.
The man was identified as

Mohammed Yehia Ali Sattar, a
Yemeni who said he wanted to fly to
Baghdad airport, where a series of
flights seen as challenges to Iraq's
international isolation have landed in
recent months, Yemen's state-run
Saba news agency said.
Abdulmejid Tarek of the immigra-
tion police at Djibouti airport said
the hijacker was hospitalized in the
Horn of Africa nation across the
Gulf of Aden from Yemen, apparent-
ly with injuries inflicted by his own
gun. Tarek had no details.
Acting U.S. Embassy spokes-
woman Donna Visocan, contacted in
San'a, said the embassy had no
information on the fate of the hijack-
er, his motives or demands. But she
said officials heard he had been
unaware passengers included U.S.
diplomats.
Bodine had been taking Yemenia
airlines Flight 448 from San'a to
Taiz, 125 miles south, for a meeting
with the president.
Gen. Tommy Franks, the Florida-
based commander of the U.S. Cen-
tral Command, was already in Taiz
to meet with Saleh, Visocan said.
She said U.S. Embassy officials
had been confident the Yemenis
could provide adequate airport secu-

rity and it was too early to say
whether the hijacking would altdr

Tribal kidnappings as challengesa
to central authority are a regular haz >
ard for road travelers in parts of
Yemen, but security is generally tighahi,
at Yemeni airports, where Yemenri?
men are required to hand over their'
traditional daggers during flights.
Yemeni airport officials said the
hijacker used the aircraft's radio to
speak to them about 15 minutes into
the half-hour flight, saying he would,.
blow up the plane if it were not
diverted to Djibouti.
The officials, who spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity, said they believed
he was armed with a grenade and a
pistol. The hijacker also told the
tower he was a supporter of Iraq and
Iraqi President Saddam G.
Hussein, whose troops were forced
out of Kuwait a decade ago in the.
Persian Gulf War.
The Saudi carrier Saudia has a 49
percent stake in Yemenia, formed in
1996 with the meiger of Yemenia
Airlines of the former North Yemen

government owns 51 percent of the-
airline.

The Washington Post
TABA, Egypt - Israel suspended peace talks
with the Palestinians yesterday after masked
gunmen seized two Israelis from a restaurant in
the Palestinian controlled city of Tulkarm on the
West Bank and shot them execution-style.
The operations wing of a radical Palestinian
group, the Islamic Resistance Movement, or
Hamas, took responsibility for the killings, say-
ing the two victims were members of Israel's
Shin Bet security agency.
Israeli media reported the two were restau-
rant 'owners who had gone to Tulkarm with an
Arab-Israeli friend to shop for earthenware pot-
tery, a local specialty.
The killings seemed likely to erode already
weak Israeli support for the peace talks even as
they had begun to make progress. They were fol-
lowed by an immediate recall of the leaders of
Israel's delegation from the negotiations at this
Egyptian resort near Eilat.
The discussions were billed as a "marathon"
round of bargaining that might last as long as 140
days.
But the office of Prime Minister Ehud Barak
released a statement saying he will hold "consul-
tations" with the Israeli negotiating team today
to determine whether they will resume at all. In
the meantime all contact will stop.
The talks were in their third day and both
sides indicated differences were narrowing on
issues like how much additional land Israel will
turn over to a future Palestinian state.
New proposals on control of religious sites in
Jerusalem were also on the table, with Barak

telling high school students in Israel he support-
ed "joint management" of an expanded "holy
basin" of Jewish,Christian and Muslim religious
sites.
Despite that breath of optimism, the fresh
violence on the West Bank could mean the end
of Barak's last-ditch effort to forge at least the
outlines of a peace agreement before Feb. 6 elec-
tions in which he is running against the conserv-
ative Likud Party leader and former defense
minister, Ariel Sharon.
Barak called the killings "horrendous" and
pledged to hunt down those responsible.
Yasser Arafat's Palestinian Authority also
condemned the killings and said they were car-
ried out by "irresponsible and suspicious ele-
ments."
The statement was an unusual move that sug-
gested an eagerness to move forward with the
talks and marked a breach in the alliance Pales-
tinian officials had maintained with Hamas dur-
ing the recent fighting.
As the negotiations began on Sunday, Israeli
officials had noted a substantial decrease in
protests, shootings and other violence after 3 1/2
months in which clashes between Israelis and
Palestinians have killed more than 360 people,
most of them Palestinians.
The new killings not only shattered that lull,
but could bolster Sharon's arguments that Israel
must take a tougher line with the Palestinians,
not try to woo them with election-season con-
cessions.
Sharon, who has built up a large lead over
Barak in the race for prime minister, said in a
statement that "We are talking about an unceas-

"We should stop the
negotiations immediately
as it is impossible to
conduct negotiations
under the threat of
terrorist acts."

ing chain of terror. We should stop the nego'tia-
tions immediately as it is impossible to conduct
negotiations under the threat of terrorist acts."
Tulkarm has been a frequent flashpoint during
the recent Israeli-Palestinian clashes, and few Israelis
have ventured there since the fighting began.
According to Israeli media reports, the two
were abducted along with an Arab colleague,
who was released.
The two Jewish Israelis were then shot in the
head and their bodies were dumped ina field
close to a nearby Palestinian refugee camp.
Palestinian police later found the bodies and
turned them over to Israeli authorities.
The peace talks had been proceeding compar-
atively well.
Beginning Sunday, the Palestinian and Israeli
participants had broken into working groups to
address the major outstanding issues.
