    Hijack charges

     

    Hamadei is believed to be living in Lebanon. He was indicted in 1985 on 15 charges for his role in planning and taking part in the hijacking, the state department said in a statement.

     

    The hijack resulted in the murder of Robert Stethem, a US soldier.

     

    The US state department say Shallah has furthered the activity of Palestinian Islamic Jihad through activities such as bombings, murder, extortions and money laundering.

     

    It said since 1995 he has been the secretary-general and leader of the group, which has its headquarters in Damascus.
