As the Albanian hijacker holding two armed grenades began to doze off Thursday, an army private being held hostage on a bus grabbed his captor as police stormed in. The hijacker was killed in the ensuing struggle, but the five hostages emerged from the bus unscathed. The rescue plan ending the two-day hijacking drama called for a hostage--20-year-old army Pvt. Nestoras Kokkalis--to confront the hijacker directly.

Greece plans to launch a campaign to win back American tourists who canceled vacations because of fears of guerrilla violence, the Greek National Tourist Organization said Wednesday. Tourist industry sources said the number of Americans visiting Greece is expected to fall by as much as half this year because of the situation in Libya and security fears caused by two hijackings over Greece in 1985.
