PFLP founder dies, AP gives some background

That's Abu Maher Yamani and here's the background:
The PFLP is a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization. It gained notoriety for the 1970 hijackings of four Western airliners over the United States, Europe, the Far East and the Persian Gulf. The aircraft were blown up in the Middle East after passengers and crews disembarked.
So nobody died, isn't that nice? Not like the Lod Airport massacre.
