Iraqi authorities stood firm Thursday against the release of civilian hostages whose governments support the blockade of Iraq, and they threw up new barriers in front of the few families promised safe passage. Swedish and Swiss authorities, whose nations have not contributed ships to the blockade, said busloads of their nationals made the 30-hour drive from Baghdad to the Turkish border, only to be blocked in most cases by Iraqi frontier guards who said their papers were not in order.
