On Christmas Eve 1994 and as the civil war was tearing up Algeria, a group of 4 Algerian Islamic terrorists highjacked an Air France Plane in Alger airport's tarmac.
After two days of negotiation, and because of the French Government, who didn't trust Algerian Ninja team (local name for the SWAT teams) to lead an assault without a massacre among passengers, demand the Algerian authorities to be so, the plane was let to take off to Paris.
But the energy consumed during a two days standby had hadn't left enough fuel to get to Paris, so they land at Marseille, officially to get some fuel. However, French authorities had decided that whatever the cost should be, the plane wouldn't take off from Marseille, and here comes the assault.
The intelligence revealed that the terrorists wanted to make some kind of 9/11 like attack on Paris, whether by making it crash on a building or blowing it up in the air right above the city.
Apparently, they got the lesson and decide to highjack the plane only once it was in the air for the 9/11 attack.
