Gepners received an anonymous · note in Ihe mail calling the , previous flag "a disgrace." Negotiators made countless trips up three flights of stairs lo the embassy, in the Bank Sabbag office center on uptown Hamra Street. Outside, police carrying grenade launchers and machineguns ringed the building. About 9 p.m. a hostage suddenly stuck his head out of a window and flashed a victory sign. It was all over. The hostages, among them Canadian Charge d'Affaires Alan Sullivan, were released unharmed. The five gunmen were (aken away for questioning. Officials said negotiators promised Haymour, a Lebanese- born Canadian citizen, ihev would investigate his claims. "There's no question of our agreeing to pay him anything, but we will look into it and. if lie is entitled lo any money, then he shall receive it," a Canadian embassy spokesman said. Lebanese Parliamentary Deputy Michel Maalouly, who helped negotiate Ihe hostages' release, said Haymour was "really not a criminal. "He meant no harm," Maalouly said. "He's just a father badly in need of his children."
