Last of skyjack hostages leave Tehran for Kuwait

The last of the freed hostages from the six-day hijacking drama at Tehran airport left Iran Tuesday aboard a Kuwaiti aircraft, Kuwaiti officials said. The plane, headed for Kuwait, carried two Americans and a dozen other passengers and crew from the Kuwait Airways airbus hijacked on a flight to Pakistan last week.

Newspapers in Kuwait ridiculed Iran's reported rescue effort as theater and a ''camouflage for collusion'' with the hijackers.
