On February 1976, Somalian terrorists hijack a bus carrying French children in Djibouti City and drive it to the small town of Loyada, the official border crossing from Djibouti into Somalia. France sent a special operations unit of the French National Gendarmerie. The hostages will be rescued under covering fire from Somali border troops. And the unit will become one of France’s premier counterterror special forces, the GIGN.
