A 65-year-old Lebanese man arrested last week on the jet-setting island of Mykonos on an international warrant involving two 1980s terrorism incidents, including a plane hijacking and murder, has been freed. Authorities in both Greece and Germany reportedly failed to establish any link between the man and the wanted terrorist.
Besides a Middle Eastern origin, the released man - identified as a well-known journalist in Lebanon - has the same name as the suspect wanted in the 1985 hijacking and murder of a passenger, US navy diver Robert Dean Stethem.

TWA Flight 847 was seized by terrorists thought to belong to south Lebenon-based Hezbollah, a claim the Shiite militant group denied.
The same man listed in the arrest warrant is sought for a kidnapping committed in 1987.
