The World

July 16, 1986

A London judge ordered that a Palestinian be tried on charges of trying to blow up an Israeli airliner in April by smuggling a bomb aboard in his girlfriend's baggage. A security agent spotted the bomb. Nezar Hindawi, 32, is to be held in jail until a jury trial, for which no date was set. Mohammed Said Fadda, 44, of London, who is alleged to have had possession of Hindawi's gun, will also stand trial, on firearms charges. He was released on bail. The judge acted after two days of preliminary hearings in which British prosecutors implicated Syria in the incident.
