ASSASINATION OF ANWAR SADAT IN 1981

On October 6, 1981, Anwar El Sadat was assassinated by a group of radicals lead by Khalid Islambouli. It was the first time in Egyptian history that the head of state had been assassinated by an Egyptian citizen.

Sadat was assasinated by Islamist radicals who felt betrayed by the 1979 Egypt-Israel peace treaty.
