A hijacker points a gun toward an ABC news crew as it approaches a TWA 747 for an interview at Beirut International Airport. In June 1985, Shiite militants seized the jet and flew it back and forth between Beirut and Algiers demanding the release of Lebanese Shiites captured by Israel. During the hijacking -- for which Imad Moughnieh was indicted by the U.S. -- the body of U.S. Navy diver Robert Stethem, a passenger on the plane, was dumped on the tarmac in Beirut. (Herve Merliac / Associated Press)
