HON293C: Literary Scandals and Controversies

An archived version of a 2007 NCSU course blog

Terrorism and Hostages

Pages 184-187 describe terrorist events by Iranians in several different countries. I am curious to find out the situation between Shahpour Bakhtiar, the prime minister of Iran, and Khomeini that lead a French policeman and French neighbor to die. Why does Bakhtiar have to live under such heavy guard? Also, the Iranian government held a British businessman, Roger Cooper, in jail and sentences him for spying (pg 188). Is there any more information on this?
