|RFE/RL in Munich|
Four Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty employees were seriously injured: Maria Pulda, Rudolf Skukalek and Allan Antalis, Czechoslovak Broadcast Service, and Ingeborg Eberl, telephone operator. Part of the building was in shambles. Damage to the building exceeded $2,000,000. This was the only direct attack on the RFE/RL headquarters building in the history of the radio station.
Glen Ferguson, then president of RFE/RL, sent out a message to the staff the next morning. It read, in part, "Four of our employees are injured, our building is damaged, but RFE/RL will continue to be heard."
Major international and West German media covered the Saturday night bomb attack against RFE/RL in the Sunday and Monday editions. Soviet and East European media also carried the story starting Sunday morning. West German television and radio began covering the story as of 11 pm Saturday night, and continued coverage throughout Sunday and Monday
Although the evidence has long been there and the perpetrators identified, no one has been and, most likely, never will be prosecuted for this terrorist act. Carlos is in jail for two life terms in Paris. Of the four Euro-terrorists who were in Munich, Johannes Weinrich is in prison for life in Berlin, Bruno Brequet has disappeared (presumed dead), one of the Basque terrorists died in Cuba and the other was never identified. The Romanian general who ordered the attack died as did the Romanian intelligence officer, who coordinated the attack with Carlos.
Below is a gallery of a few photographs of the bomb damage.
