Toward a radical middle

a time for fear
Thursday, September 11, 2003  
In 1994, Algerian terrorists planned to hijack an Air France airliner with the intention of detonating it over the Eiffel Tower. Having been warned of an imminent bust, the operation was moved forward from New Year's Eve to Christmas Eve. This sudden change meant that some members of the group could not participate, and things did not go according to plan. The airplane was hijacked by four members who killed three passengers before executing a forced landing at Marseilles airport. Here, French elite soldiers stormed the plane, killed the hijackers, and freed the passengers.
