New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 4, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung    Thursday, July 4,1985    7    A Reagan ponders reward for hijackers WASHINGTON (AP) — The Reagan administration is considering offering $500,000 for the apprehension of the Shiite militants who took over TWA flight 847 and killed Navy diver Robert Dean Stethem, a U.S. official said today. The official, who spoke on the condition that he not be identified, said, “It’s under consideration.” The Los Angeles Times reported that the administration was considering offering as much as $5 million. But the U.S. official who spoke to The Associated Press said the administration had asked for $5 million for the fund, but Congress had only appropriated $1 million. He said the law authorized individual rewards of up to $500,000 each from the anti-terrorism fund. Earlier, White House spokesman l^arry Speakes refused specific comment on the report but added, “I would point out to you that Congress last year authorized the secretary of state to pay up to $500,000 each to individuals furnishing information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person committing, conspiring or attempting to commit an act of terrorism overseas.” The I .A Times, in a story from Washington, also quoted sources as saying the administration was laying the groundwork for an attempt to kidnap the hijackers and bring them to justice outside lebanon. Asked if the United States would consider such an attempt, Speakes said, “You may assume that anything the United States did would be within the bounds of United States law, and I’m not sure that falls under it.” The State Department announced Tuesday that the U.S. government might undertake “unilateral efforts” against the hijackers if Lebanese authorities fail to take appropriate action on their own. The administration has said it knows the identities of the two hijackers. Department spokesman Bernard Kalb said lebanon is a member of two international conventions which require it to try to extradite hijackers. But alluding to the chaotic situation in lebanon, Kalb suggested that Lebanese authorities might not live up to those obligations. Sources told the Times that senior officials at the State Department, the Defense Department and the CIA are considering other retaliatory steps beyond those aimed at the original hijackers. I^ast year, Congress authorized a total of $5 million for rewards for information leading to the apprehension of international terrorists. Britain, U.S. may seek end to Beirut flights LONDON (AP) — Britain and the United States will jointly seek suspension of commercial flights to and from Beirut as “an immediate first step" to combat airborne terrorism, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Vice President George Bush have announced. In a statement issued after they met at the Mrs. Thatcher’s IO Downing St. office, the two declared: “Terrorism and the threat it poses to civilized and democratic peoples must be stopped.” They said the suspension of services to and from Beirut airport would be part of a package of measures to combat terrorism, particularly against civil aviation. Bush was completing a seven-nation West European tour dominated by the June 14 hijacking of TWA flight 847. Frank C.
