Fifteen passengers who had been aboard Trans World Airlines flight 847 could not be accounted for late yesterday, as airline officials and news services continued to have difficulty in producing a passenger list.
A list compiled by The Washington Post from various sources contained 153 names.
A letter sent from the plane was purportedly signed by 29 passengers. One of them, Robert Peel Sr., was later released by the hijackers.
According to the airline, some hijackers took perhaps 12 passengers off the plane in Beirut. However, 15 passengers were not reported on any list of those known to be released or remaining on the plane. One of these 15 is probably the man slain early Saturday in Beirut.
TWA reported 44 passengers were either on the plane or removed in Beirut, one more than The Post's count.
Here is a list of the crew members and the passengers, as compiled from information supplied by TWA officials in New York, freed passengers, their friends and relatives, news agencies and other sources. CREW MEMBERS NOT REPORTED RELEASED (3)
