Three men hijacked a security van at the Hong Kong airport and escaped with nearly $21.5 million in what police said was the largest cash robbery in the British colony. The Republic National Bank of New York said the money was being transferred to an affiliate bank in Taiwan and included $17 million in new U.S. bank notes and 35 million in Hong Kong dollars--the equivalent of $4.48 million. Police said the robbers ambushed four guards in the security van at the airport cargo terminal.

The dollar rose against most major currencies Thursday but its increase was modest, a sign of the success of central banks' efforts to halt its recent ascent. Gold prices rose. Foreign exchange dealers said trading was cautious in the aftermath of Wednesday's concerted dollar-selling by the Federal Reserve and at least eight other central banks. "They (central banks) have in fact capped the dollar," said Marc Cohen, a vice president of Republic National Bank of New York.

The dollar turned broadly higher Tuesday but finished below its highs of the day after some interest rates fell in the United States. Currency dealers said traders focused most of their attention on the South African rand, which fell to a new low against the dollar because of concern over possible economic sanctions in protest of the government's apartheid policy. The price of gold was mostly higher. Republic National Bank of New York said gold bullion was bid at $336.75 an ounce as of 4 p.m.

The dollar advanced broadly in early trading Monday as traders reacted to a weekend realignment of the European Monetary System, but it later gave ground as doubts persisted about the strength of the U.S. economy. Currency dealers said markets appeared calm following Saturday's devaluation of the Italian lire by 6% within the EMS and the upward revaluation of other currencies in the system by 2%. Gold also turned in a mixed performance, rising at day's end as the dollar fell.

The dollar extended its broad retreat Wednesday, falling to its lowest level in more than 10 months, as traders continued to look to other currencies for better returns on their investments. High interest rates in Britain and expectations of lackluster economic growth in the United States continued to undercut the dollar, which has slipped more than 14% since hitting record heights in late February. The price of gold stabilized in quiet trading.
