Abu Abbas,

a former leader of the terrorist group Palestine Liberation Front, was captured in April in Baghdad by U.S. Special Forces troops. In 1985, under Abbas's direction, the group hijacked the Achille Lauro, an Italian cruise ship, and killed an American passenger. He was the first major terrorist apprehended in Iraq by the U.S.
