In the midst of terrorist threats surrounding the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, it is only right to look back to past Olympics where such terror occurred so that it may be prevented in the future. Steven Spielberg’s 2006 thriller “Munich” was nominated for 5 Best Picture Academy Awards. Inspired by real events Munich reveals an intense story of the secret Israeli squad assigned to track down the 11 Palestinians that were believed to plot and kill 11 Israeli athletes.
According to ABC News, the airports and airways surrounding Russia and neighboring countries are at a stand-still after the grounding of a private Turkish Pegasus plane was hijacked in mid-flight by a 45-year-old Ukrainian man who was a passenger on board the Turkey-bound plane. He allegedly claimed to have an explosive bomb and demanded the pilots to take the plane to Sochi, Russia, the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
The pilots played along to his plea while secretly tripping an alarm to alert officials know that the plane was being hijacked. The plane was then accompanied by two fighter jets as it was grounded. Security forces quickly evacuated passengers at the Sabiha Gokcen Airport in Istanbul, Turkey, all passengers are being questioned and screened before released incase there are any possible accomplices.
