Hamadi reunion

SAARBRUCKEN (Reuter) - Two Lebanese brothers, Mohammad Ali and Abbas Hamadi, jailed in Germany for hijacking and kidnapping, will be allowed to serve their sentences in the same prison. Supporters of the Hamadi family seized two German aid workers in Beirut in 1989, hoping to exchange them for the brothers. The Germans were freed last month. Germany said no concessions were made.
