On the morning of 17 December 1980, two men shot the Turkish consul-general to Sydney and his bodyguard near the consul’s home in Vaucluse.
The assassins aimed, fired, and vanished. The crime remains unsolved.
This event was part of a wave of international terrorist attacks that took place in the 1970s and 80s with the aim of bringing attention to the ongoing denial of the Armenian Genocide of World War I.
