FLASHBACK: Israel hijack role 'was queried'

It has been seen as a daring raid by crack Israeli troops to rescue dozens of their countrymen held at the mercy of hijackers.

A UK government file on the crisis, released from the National Archives, contains a claim that Israel itself was behind the hijacking.
