Confessed TWA hijacker Mohammed Ali Hamadi fell ill during his trial, forcing the judge to interrupt emotional testimony by a former American hostage. The West German trial was adjourned until Monday after a doctor examined Hamadi, who complained of dizziness, and ruled the defendant was unable to continue. Hamadi, a Lebanese Shia Muslim, is charged with murder and air piracy in the 1985 hijacking in which U.S. Navy diver Robert D. Stethem was killed and 39 Americans were held hostage.
