2 exiles who hijacked jet face stiff action in Cuba

Two Cuban exiles who hijacked an Eastern Airlines jumbo jet and forced it to Havana will be tried and sentenced rigorously, Cuba said. The hijackers were arrested by Cuban security forces when the jet with 177 passengers aboard landed.

Last September, after a rash of hijackings of US planes by Cuban exiles, Cuba announced that hijackers would face drastic sentences in Cuba or be extradited to the United States t o face trial there.
