Two Israeli employes of Israel Raddie, who were held in west Beirut by leftwing terrorists, have been freed, an Israeli military spokesman announced today.

According to the spokesman, the two Israelis, a driver and soul technician, were allowed to walk back to east Beirut last night across the Galerie Semena crossing point between east and west Beirut. The two Israelis were captured earlier this week when they drove by mistake into west Beirut which is now controlled by leftwingers.

Another Israel Radio employe, Sara Barkai, a reporter for the radio’s French-language service, was freed yesterday after being captured with her two coworkers because she was holding a French passport.
