Illich Ramirez Sanchez aka Carlos the Jackal
by Michael Thomas Barry
On August 14, 1994, terrorist Illich Ramirez Sanchez, infamously known as Carlos the Jackal, is captured in Khartoum, Sudan, by French intelligence agents. Since there was no extradition treaty with Sudan, the French agents sedated and kidnapped Carlos. The Sudanese government, claiming that it had assisted in the arrest, requested that the United States remove their country from its list of nations that sponsor terrorism.
