Three days ago, after multiple attempts made by nineteen year old Gavriol Princip succeeded in the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand. Princip eventually killed the Archduke with a second shot of a gun which killed the Archduke instantly. The first shot of the gun hit and killed the Archduke’s wife, Sofia. Previously in the day another assassination attempt was made. A bomb was thrown at the Archduke’s car but instead of causing the car to explode it bounced off and as a result injured two of the Archduke’s guards. Because he cared so much about his officers, the Archduke went to see how they were in the hospital and sadly never returned. It was later discovered that the assassin, Gavriol Princip was a member of The Black Hand, a Serbian terrorist group.
As a result of this tragedy many countries have had uprisings. Tension and hostility have been building in Europe because of this assassination and it is now very clear that this will be the start of something much bigger to come.
