Assassination of Franz Ferdinand
The assassination of Franz Ferdinand. AKA The spark of WW1
6 teenage Bosnian Serb terrorists have sworn to kill the Archduke: Franz Ferdinand
On June 28th, 1914, Franz Ferdinand was in a small caravan of cars going through the town Sarajevo
The 6 teenagers were all placed along the intervals of the route and were all equipped with pistols and bombs, they also had poison which they promised to swallow if caught
At 10:15, the cars passed Mehmed basic, the first in line. He got scared, did nothing and escaped.
The next assassin: Cabrilovic, also got scared, but as the cars passed he threw his bomb, then swallowed his poison and jumped in the water. Franz saw the bomb coming and threw it off his car injuring several behind it. Because of this, they changed the route, and the other assassins on hearing the explosion left with the though the archduke is dead, all except for one.
The only assassin that didn't leave was Princip, he went to a cafe nearby and all of a sudden the archduke's car was next to him, this was because of a mistake by the driver because of the new route. Princip shot 2 shots, 1 pierced his neck, the other ricocheted into his wife's stomach. The poison of the assassins didn't work so they were caught and imprisoned.
