On this day in 1979. Iranian militants seized the U.S. embassy in
Tehran and took 63 Americans hostage (90 total hostages). The
militants, mostly students, demanded that the U.S. send the
former shah back to Iran to stand trial. Many hostages were
later released, but 52 were held for the next 14 months.
