10 Fun Facts About Pablo Escobar

On November 27, 1989, Escobar blew up an airplane in an attempt to kill Colombian presidential candidate C├ęsar Gaviria Trujillo. 110 people were killed although his intended target was not on the plane and went on to get elected president of Colombia. Trujillo then went on to become president. Even worse for Escobar, two of the dead were American citizens, which prompted the Bush Sr. administration to get involved.
