Croat who hijacked US plane in 1976 dies aged 67

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Zvonko Busic, a Croatian nationalist who served 32 years in prison in the U.S. for hijacking a plane and also planting explosives that killed a policeman, has committed suicide. Busic led a group of five who in 1976 hijacked a TWA plane flying from New York to Chicago with some 80 passengers and crew members onboard, and also planted a bomb in a locker at New York's Grand Central railway station that killed a policeman. Busic and his group said at the time they wanted to draw attention to Croatia's bid for independence from communist Yugoslavia.
