NPR's Michael Sullivan reports from New Delhi that the hijackers of the Air India flight on the ground in Afghanistan have increased their demands. Not only do the hijackers want the release from jail of a leading Kashmiri militant, but they have now asked Indian negotiators at the scene to free more jailed Kashmiri rebels and demanded a payment of 200 million dollars. The hijackers have now held 150 people hostage on the plane for five days.
