Suhaila Andrawes, the only Palestinian terrorist to have survived the hijacking of a Lufthansa plane to Mogadishu in 1977, was jailed for 12 years yesterday by a Hamburg court.

Andrawes, aged 42, had been convicted in Somalia and sentenced to 20 years in jail, but was released after a year. She was discovered living in Norway and was extradited to Germany in 1995. The three other hijackers were shot dead when special German forces stormed the plane. Imre Karacs - Bonn
