1970 Press Photo Arab Commandos Being Sentenced Dekarabetian Mourad
Jailed Arabs Await Skyjack Swap: Two Arab commandos, identified as Ilia Dekarabetian, and Mansur Mourad, were sentenced in Athens yesterday to prison sentences of 18 years and four months, and 11 years and three months, respectively. They were convicted of throwing a grenade which killed a child at the Israeli airline office in Athens last November. Despite being found guilty, the two Arabs will be freed as soon as they, and five other Arab commandos already sentenced to prison in Greece, are handed over to the International Red Cross by a date before August 22. Under a pledge made to a group of six Arab skyjackers last Wednesday, the Greek Government has agreed to released the seven Arabs as the price for the lives of 55 passengers and crew of an Olympic Airways Boeing jet-liner held captive by the six skyjackers last week.
