On April 2, 1986, a bomb exploded on TWA Flight 840 as it traveled from Rome, Italy to Athens, Greece. The explosion ejected four American citizens from the aircraft, none of whom survived. Among these four victims were a 9-month-old infant and her mother. Five others were injured in the bombing, primarily due to rapid decompression of the airliner. The remaining 110 passengers survived the attack without serious injury.
The Rewards for Justice program is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information that brings to justice those responsible for these attacks.
