November 01, 1987

Do Chae Sung, a South Korean diplomat freed after 21 months as a hostage in Beirut, arrived at Geneva's Cointrin international airport on a regular Middle East Airlines flight.

Do was seized Jan. 31, 1986, by a previously unknown group called the Revolutionary Commando Cells, which demanded $10 million in ransom.
