In part two of this two-part episode, retired agents Bob Clifford and Kevin Foust review their international terrorism investigation of the hijacking of Egypt Air Flight 648 during an international trip from Athens, Greece to Cairo, Egypt, on November 23, 1985. Members of the terrorist organization, Abu Nidal, hijacked the plane in Malta. The hijackers began systematically shooting Israeli and American passengers. A rescue attempt by Egyptian commandoes resulted in dozens of deaths, making the hijacking of Flight 648 one of the deadliest such incidents in history. Sixty-one of the 95 passengers and crew died, as did two of the three hijackers. Bob Clifford and Kevin Foust recount their efforts to bring the only surviving hijacker, Omar Mohammed Ali Rezaq, back to the U.S. to stand trial.
