Pakistan air hijackers free some hostages

Eleven hijackers threatening to blow up the Pakistan airliner they commandeered to Afghanistan Wednesday freed all 18 women and nine children among the 141 people aboard, airline officials said. The Pakistan government had followed the hijackers' demand for a public apology that retracted an initial charge that the men who seized the airliner Monday belonged to the Pakistan People's Party. But the hijackers apparently maintained their threat to blow up the plane unless Pa kistan flew them to Iran and released 80 political prisoners
