Hostage Terry Anderson released, Dec. 5, 1991

NewspaperArchive


    The freeing of an American reporter this week in 1991 ended a years-long period in which more than a dozen Americans were held hostage in Lebanon. A Dec. 5, 1991, article in The Gettysburg Times of Gettysburg, Penn., reported on his release.

    “Journalist Terry Anderson, the last American hostage in Lebanon, was set free Wednesday by pro-Iranian Islamic radicals and said faith and stubbornness helped him survive his nearly seven-year ordeal.

    “His release ended a brutal saga in which Shiite Muslims kept 14 Americans in chains, killed three and bedeviled two U.S. presidencies.

    “A joyous Anderson grinned broadly, raised his arms and warmly greeted friends as he entered a conference room at the Syrian Foreign Ministry. He later left to meet his 6-year-old daughter, Sulome, for the first time.”
