The 17 passengers on board are saved by the plane’s security officer, Mordechai Rahamim, who shoots the terrorists and manages to kill one of them. Rahamim is arrested by Swiss authorities, is put on trial for murder under extenuating circumstances. He is acquitted and returns to Israel 8 months later.
