Default Achille Lauro hijacker dead

May he meet his proper reward in the afterlife.



RAMALLAH, West Bank - Mohammed Abul Abbas, head of a Palestinian splinter
group and mastermind of the 1985 hijacking of the Achille Lauro passenger
ship in which an American tourist was killed, has died in U.S. custody in
Iraq, Palestinian and U.S. officials said Tuesday. The ship was
commandeered by Abbas' small Palestine Liberation Front. Palestinian
militants threw an elderly wheelchair-bound Jewish American tourist, Leon
Klinghoffer, overboard.

Abbas was captured in Iraq in April by U.S. forces. Late Tuesday, officials
in Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's office, speaking on condition of
anonymity, said that Abbas had died in U.S. custody. snip
