Damage from an explosion in a Boeing 707 of the Pan Am World Airways after it was set afire by a three-man Palestinian commando is seen at Fiumicino International airport in this Dec. 17, 1973, file photo. Terrorists ran onto the tarmac where the aircraft was preparing for taxi, and threw incendiary devices into the jetliner, resulting in the deaths of 30 passengers.
Palestinian terrorist Abu Nidal responsible for this terrorist act died in Baghdad, Palestinian officials said Monday, Aug. 19, 2002. The schoolteacher-turned-terror mastermind, once branded the world’s most dangerous terrorist by the U.S. State Department, was found with multiple gunshot wounds that left unclear whether he had been killed by a rival, slain by his Iraqi patrons or had taken his own life.
