    Background: The hijackers released more prisoners at noon. There are still 22 passengers in the plane. All 8 children have been released. All the released passengers are in good condition. There was a special plane taking them to Russia in the evening.

    All the passengers in the plane are citizens of the Soviet Union.

    The identification of the 2 hijackers is uncertain. They are quite young men. When the hijackers were told that there are no possibilities for landing in Sweden, they requested the possibility to fly to some other countries.

    Five passengers escaped about 4 p.m. One of them hurt his ankle when falling down. The government has tried to solve the situation with negotiations to avoid bloodshed.
