SAS storm the Embassy
Stage 2
STAGE 2
Frontal Assault
At the same time another assault team used ‘frame charges’ to blow in the windows at the front of the embassy - this was the explosion that was seen on TV. They narrowly missed injuring the BBC’s Sim Harris - one of the hostages - who had run into the front room to escape when the assault began. The room caught fire and Harris was hauled to safety over a neighbouring balcony.
