Durch die Explosion wurden zwei Menschen ermordet und 23 verletzt. Der Soldat Edward Pimental war in der Nacht zuvor erschossen worden, um mit seinem Truppenausweis auf das Air-Base-Gelände zu gelangen. Die Taten sorgten in der linken Szene für scharfe Kritik und eine anhaltende Diskussion. (de)
  • The Rhein-Main Air Base bombing was a terrorist car bomb attack against the American Rhein-Main Air Base near Frankfurt am Main in West Germany on 8 August 1985. Two Americans were killed and 23 people, including Germans, were injured. The blast was powerful caused debris and damage to the base including to 30 vehicles, trees and windows. The attack was orchestrated by the left-wing Red Army Faction (RAF) and the French Action Directe groups. It was the worst attack on an American installation in Germany since Ramstein Air Base was bombed in 1981, also by the RAF. The attack came less than two months after the Frankfurt airport bombing, although the two were not related. In preparation for the attack, RAF members lured and killed American soldier Edward Pimental in Wiesbaden. They used Pimental's identification to gain entry into the air base the next day where they carried out the attack. The bomb was placed in a Volkswagen Passat with fake American military plates. (en)
