Black September terrorists occupy the Saudi Arabian embassy in Khartoum, Sudan. The Palestinian guerillas shoot and kill the newly appointed ambassador from the United States, Cleo A. Noel, Jr., the American chargé d'affaires, George C. Moore, and the Belgian chargé d'affaires, Guy Eid after President Richard Nixon insists that no concessions would be made and no negotiations would occur with terrorists.

Nixon expects the Black September terrorists to give up their demands and accept safe passage out of Khartoum in exchange for the hostages, but he misreads their commitment. Before being killed the three are tortured brutally.
