May 22, 1987

Courts in Rome and Vienna sentenced three Palestinians to prison terms for two separate terrorist attacks. Ahmed Ben Chaoval, 27, and Ben Abdallah Saadkoui, 28, were given life terms by a Vienna court for a machine gun and grenade attack at the city's Schwechat airport in December, 1985, that left four people dead and 47 wounded. Both were members of a Palestinian faction loyal to the Abu Nidal terror group. In Rome, Hussein Shehaden Salkem Nawajh was sentenced to 15 years for firing a bazooka in the building housing the Jordanian Embassy in the Italian capital in April, 1985.
