(Studio) Ordeal ends for hostages left aboard Japanese airliner hijacked 6 days ago; terrorists forced plane to land in Dacca, Bangladesh, then to fly to Kuwait, Damascus, and finally, to Algiers. It appears Algeria will let hijackers go.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Algiers, Algeria) Report on events leading up to release of remaining hostages and surrender of hijackers in Algeria. Hijackers expected to ask for political asylum, but will probably be flown quietly out of country soon. Terrorists, members of Japanese Red Army, probably won't get to keep ransom money, either.
