On Tuesday, September 19th, 1989, six Libyan terrorists boarded the plane DC-10 and ignited a suitcase bomb on its way to Paris from Brazzaville. UTA Flight 772 broke up over the Sahara Desert near the towns of Bilma and Ténéré in Niger. All 155 passengers and 15 crew members died. On the 18th anniversary of the disaster, families of the victims gathered at the crash site to build a memorial. Lying in the middle of the Sahara, it is one of the least accessible memorial in the world.
