August 7, 1982 Ankara, Esenboga Airport two Armenian terrorists open fire in a crowded passenger waiting room. One of the terrorists takes more than twenty hostages while the second is apprehended by police. He was wounded when he was apprehended. A Turkish police officer gave him blood to make him survive. He said, "The nation, whom I wanted to shed the blood of, gave me blood". The unscrupulous killers, who have been perfectly indoctrinated in their "ideology", leave nine people dead and eighty-two injured-some seriously. The surviving terrorist Levon Ekmekchian, realizes the horror of his crime before his execution. He issues a strong appeal to his young comrades to reject the program of murder, as it is based on deceptive teachings.
