  • On October 7, 1985, four men representing the Palestine Liberation Front hijacked the Italian MS Achille Lauro liner off the coast of Egypt, as she was sailing from Alexandria to Ashdod, Israel. The hijacking was masterminded by Muhammad Zaidan, leader of the PLF. One elderly American man in a wheelchair, Leon Klinghoffer, was murdered by the hijackers and thrown overboard. Wikipedia
