1981: Sadat killed in Egypt

leave a comment »

On this day in 1981, Anwar Sadat, the president of Egypt, was assassinated during a military parade.   It all happened so fast that many thought that the it was part of the show.  

Sadat and Menachem Begin won the Nobel Peace Prize for the Camp David accords of 1978.   

Unfortunately, the deal made him a target of Islamic extremists across the Middle East.
