Airline bomber to be freed from US prison

A Jordanian-born Palestinian man convicted of the 1982 bombing of a Pan Am flight traveling to Hawaii from Japan is set to be released from US federal prison Wednesday. Mohammed Rashed has been sitting behind bars for more than two decades after leaving a bomb under a jetliner seat that exploded on Pan Am Flight 830 from Tokyo to Honolulu on August 11, 1982, killing a Japanese teenager and injuring at least 15 others.
