Adnan Khashoggi, once regarded as the world's richest man, was flown in first-class comfort from Switzerland to a federal detention center in lower Manhattan Wednesday to await trial on charges that he helped Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos plunder Philippine national assets. He was denied bail. FBI agents took custody of Khashoggi aboard the jetliner where, earlier, first-class passengers had been pampered with caviar and champagne.
