Reading thru the articles, it states that Raffaele had just turned 20 on the day of the hijacking, his sister Anna was 18 at the time, father was 80....
very interesting reading!!
Wonder how long he was sentenced to? An appeal was filed on the 9 year sentence given to him under Italian authority...did the US extradite him as well?
Great find Suanj!
