From his birth in Venezuela to his capture two years ago in the Sudan, the life of Carlos 'the Jackal' has been an extraordinary one. Raised in a radical family, he was sent to London as a teenager in an attempt by his father to remove him from his early radical activities and friends who were seen as a bad influence. He subsequently studied in Moscow, before going to Beirut in 1969, with the avowed intention of becoming a terrorist. His subsequent career involved murders in Britain, France and Germany, culminating in the kidnapping of 11 OPEC ministers in Vienna in 1975. Carlos' career as a terrorist ranged across the whole range of the terrorist decades of the '70's and '80's and made him the world's most wanted, famous, recognizable, and yet seemingly elusive killer.
