Freed Lebanese journalist returns from Greece

General

Lebanese journalist Mohammad Saleh who was mistakenly detained in Greece over involvement in a plane hijacking case arrived in Lebanon on Wednesday afternoon.

Saleh was apprehended last week in Mykonos island based on an arrest warrant by Germany for his suspected role in the hijacking of a TWA plane in 1985.

The Greek authorities freed Saleh on Monday after realizing they had arrested the wrong person.
