[. . .] Specifically, the terrorists asked for a helicopter to the airport, and for two planes to take them and the hostages to Cairo. After hours of negotiation, the Germans agreed, simultaneously giving their police force orders to kill the terrorists at the airport without harming the hostages.

Upon arrival at the airport, the German sharp shooters unsuccessfully attempted to fulfill their orders, and a gunfight ensued. A terrorist threw a grenade into a helicopter that had hostages in it, killing everyone aboard, and shot and killed the rest of the hostages.
