Bojinka plot

"Bojinka plot" Wikipedia (via DBPedia)

The Bojinka plot was a planned large-scale three phase Islamist attack by Ramzi Yousef and Khalid Shaikh Mohammed. The attack would involve a plot to assassinate Pope John Paul II, an air bombing of 11 airliners flying from Asia to the United States and their approximately 4,000 passengers, and a proposal to crash a plane into the CIA's headquarters in Fairfax County, Virginia. Despite careful planning and the skill of Ramzi Yousef, the Bojinka plot was disrupted after a chemical fire drew the Philippine National Police's (PNP) attention on January 6-7, 1995. Before the plot was disrupted, Yousef detonated "test" bombs in a mall and theater, injuring scores of people, as well as Philippine Airlines Flight 434, killing one person and nearly causing enough damage to lose the entire aircraft. The plot was funded by al-Qaeda. more »
