The World

January 14, 1986

Abu Nidal, the Palestinian terrorist leader accused of masterminding last month's bloody Rome and Vienna airport attacks, has defended those and other killings as "very legitimate" acts, an Abu Dhabi newspaper reported. The paper, Al Wahdah, quoted Abu Nidal as saying in an interview in an undisclosed location that he has been traveling freely in Arab and European capitals under fake passports. He said that plastic surgery "several months ago in Italy" has completely changed his features. He was also quoted as saying that he was in the United States in 1977 for heart surgery.
