Rome Airport Workers Strike

January 02, 1986|United Press International

ROME — About 3,000 airport and airline workers brought Rome's Leonardo da Vinci Airport to a standstill for three hours today as they walked off their jobs to demand greater protection against terrorist attacks.

The brief strike was the first concerted reaction by airport employees to the attack last Friday by four Palestinian extremists at the El Al Israel check-in counter at Leonardo da Vinci. That attack and a coordinated one at Vienna airport's El Al counter 25 minutes later left 19 people dead and more than 115 wounded.
