Student Benno Ohnesorg is killed by a policeman during a demonstration at the age of 27 in Krumme Strasse 66, Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

Ohnesorg was killed by plain-clothes police officer Karl-Heinz Kurras, who was an undercover agent of the East German secret police Stasi, during a protest meeting against a visit of the Sjah of Iran. His death would spark off the rise of the Baader-Meinhof-Gruppe, and its allies Bewegung 2. Juni.
