Lebanese associate of Carlos the Jackal dies in Damascus hospital

Lebanese militant Anis Naccache, an accomplice of the notorious Carlos the Jackal, died Monday of coronavirus in a Damascus hospital at the age of 70, Syrian state media said. Naccache took part in the 1975 OPEC conference hostage-taking in Vienna. Hailing him as a "thinker and freedom fighter", the official SANA news agency said he was "admitted into intensive care two days ago... because his health deteriorated as a result of Covid-19". Authorities will repatriate his remains for burial in Lebanon, said the pro-Damascus Al-Mayadeen television channel.
