AMSTERDAM (Sep. 5)
Officials at Shiphol Airport disclosed that the direct reason for the stringent security measures taken at the airport over the weekend was the discovery of a bomb last week on the front wheel of a KLM aircraft. According to officials, the bomb was placed in such a-way as to explode on takeoff.
The Dutch daily, “De Telegraph,” yesterday gave the names of four Palestinians believed responsible for the aborted attack. They were identified as George Antoin-Hawa, 31, who was reportedly connected with the Lufthansa hijacking last Nov.; Azieif Housavn, 20; and two others identified only as Fowel and Ghaour. The paper said two of the men had been seen in Holland recently.
