Iran Hostage Crisis

ousted shah of Iran to travel to
New York City for medical
treatment, seized the U.S. embassy in Teheran.

John Lennon, a former member of the Beatles, the rock group
that transformed popular music in
the 1960s, was shot and
killed by an obsessed fan in
New York City
.   

The 40-year-old artist was entering his luxury Manhattan
apartment building when Mark David Chapman shot him
four times at close range with a .38-caliber revolver. Lennon,
bleeding profusely, died on the way to the  hospital.

Chapman had received an autograph from Lennon earlier in
the day and voluntarily remained at the scene of the shooting
until he was arrested by police.

For a week, hundreds of bereaved fans kept a vigil outside the
Dakota–Lennon’s apartment building–and demonstrations of
mourning were held around the world.
