The four extremists (from which 2 were called Artkin and Miro) had precise demands. 10 million dollars should be transferred, their fellow imprisoned politicians should be released and the Inner delta (a secret military intelligence installation, organization as the case may be) abolished. In order to eradicate the panic on the bus, the hijackers drugged the children. The bus itself was positioned on an old bridge, surrounded by a military Special Forces team and snipers ready to deploy an astonishing firepower. General Marchend the senior chief of Inner delta and the counter terrorism siege operator, send his son Ben to negotiate with the terrorists and gather intelligence. After merciless torture, Ben was released and a series of firefights and counter-terrorism measures took place, all hell broke loose. During the firefight Ben was hit, but had survived. One terrorist was shot, accordingly (due to their demands) another child was killed. The female bus driver Kate and the youngest hijacker escaped*.

  9. The Novel “ After the fisrt death“ deals with a group of terrorists, which is hijacking a schoolbus. The main Characters in the novel are Miro and Ben. Miro is a member of the terrorist group which has Artkin as their leader. Ben is the son of a General who is in Car of Fort Delta. The schoolbus was hijacked using Poison to drug the children. But one of them died accidentally. The Bus was hijacked on a bridge and the busdriver Kate is a very important Hostage. Ben is sent to negotiate with the terrorists. It was him becuase he was seen as an innocent outstanding Person, so there is no risk for the Hijackers.

There was a shootingaction and Ben was hit. Kate and Miro escaped and Miro relaized that Kate played a game with him so she was shot by him.

    * By the way I am still wondering why Miro was sad as he realized that Kate tried to manipulate him, I mean every normal person would try to manipulate a terrorist to survive. Just purposeless.*
