Three Lebanese citizens have been expelled in connection with the hijacking of an Air Afrique airliner by a pro-Iranian Lebanese, government officials said Saturday. The officials did not identify the three and gave no details of the expulsions. The hijacker, who identified himself as 21-year-old Hussein Ali Mohammed Hariri, seized the airliner during a flight from Rome to Paris on July 24 and ordered it to land in Geneva.

A Spaniard who authorities said was "not all there" threatened to blow up a Paris-bound airliner Sunday to protest French nuclear tests, but he was overpowered by police after releasing nearly 300 passengers. The 33-year-old man, whose name was not released, was arrested after a 90-minute standoff with police at the Geneva airport, where he forced the French Air Inter Airbus to land midway into a flight from the Spanish island of Majorca.
