Freed hostages back in Britain

 

LONDON - The four British hostages freed in a military operation last week after being held for four months by Indonesian rebels arrived in London yesterday.

After their 17 hour flight, the young Cambridge University researchers, looking pale and tired, were greeted by their families at Heathrow airport. Mr Daniel Start (21), Mr William Oates (23), Ms Annette van der Kolk (21) and Ms Anna McIvor (20), told of their joy in returning to Britain following their ordeal in the jungles of Irian Jaya.
