Greece's Supreme Court today upheld an extradition order for a Palestinian wanted by the United States in the 1982 bombing of a Pan Am jetliner over Hawaii in which a Japanese teen-ager was killed. Mohammed Rashid had appealed a lower court's decision that granted a U.S. request for his extradition. Washington considers the case a test of Greece's willingness to fight terrorism. "The court rejects Mohammed Rashid's appeal by majority of votes," said Nikos Sakelaropoulos, president of the Supreme Court's five-member criminal division.

Monterosso won the $10-million Dubai World Cup, the world's richest horse race, handing the ruler of Dubai an emotional victory after one of his horses was euthanized earlier Saturday. Monterosso, who finished third last year, also gave a much-needed confidence boost to Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum's stables, which had not won the race since 2006. All four of their horses were longshots. Capponi grabbed the lead coming into the straight only to see Monterosso bolt past and beat his stablemate by three lengths.

A Greek appeals court ruled that Mohammed Rashid should be extradited to the United States to stand trial for a 1982 bomb blast aboard a Pan Am jetliner. The court, on a 2-1 vote, accepted five of nine charges made by the U.S. government against Rashid, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization who was arrested at the Athens airport May 29. All five charges focused on the explosion aboard the Pan Am plane over Hawaii that killed a Japanese teen-ager and injured 15 other people.

The Greek Supreme Court, guarded by 1,000 police after threats by leftist guerrillas, today postponed its hearing on a U.S. extradition request for a suspected Palestinian bomber. Five judges, reviewing a U.S. demand that Mohammed Rashid be handed over, opened the hearing after months of delay but quickly announced a one-week postponement until April 18. Court President Vassilios Lambridis said the delay was needed because one of the judges became ill. The United States wants Rashid to stand trial for a bomb blast on a Pan American airliner bound for Honolulu in 1982.

From his prison cell, Palestinian Mohammed Rashid is emerging as a key international symbol of American resolve--and Greek ambivalence--in the fight against terrorism. Rashid, a tall and spare 39-year-old, says he is a freedom fighter, but the United States says he is an airplane bomber. It wants to make him the first alleged international terrorist successfully extradited to face American justice. The Greek Supreme Court is deciding whether to ratify a lower court decision granting the U.S.
