"Following the instructions of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Gebran Basil, the Lebanese embassy in Athens is following the case of detained Lebanese journalist Mohamed Saleh by the Greek police," the ministry said , according to the National News Agency in Lebanon.

"He made the necessary telephone conversations with the Syros Police Department, where he was arrested ̵

"The suspect denies any involvement in the abduction," police spokesman Theodoros Chronopoulos told CNN.

"He is being detained on Syros Island and is to be transferred to a high security prison in Athens." the police spokesman added.

Greek police are cooperating with German authorities in the investigation, Chronopoulos said.

The hijackers seized control of the Boeing 727 aircraft shortly after its departure from Athens en route to Rome on June 14, 1985.

Terrorists – fighters with possible links to Hezbollah – held more than 100 passengers aboard the aircraft as hostages in for several days before gradually releasing them in stages. The kidnappers demanded the release of Lebanese Shiite fighters who were detained in Israel.

Some passengers were beaten and a US Navy diver aboard the aircraft was beaten and killed during the ordeal. Dozens of passengers were held hostage over the next two weeks.
