A group of RAF members seized the embassy by force, demanding negotiations with the West German government. After the Swedish and German governments had employed stalling tactics the terrorists became impatient and allegedly started planning a violent break-out. A botched attempt to create a diversion led to an explosion and a massive fire. One terrorist, Siegfried Hausner, died from injuries sustained in the explosion in Stammheim prison after being flown to Germany. The other members of the group were arrested as they tried to flee the premises.

Finland beat Italy (Italy national football team) and Russia (Russia national football team) in the first two rounds before losing to Great Britain (England national amateur football team) in the semi-finals. In the bronze medal match they were beaten 0–9 by the Netherlands (Netherlands national football team). According to the story, the Finns were under the impression that the match would be a day later, so they had gone out celebrating the night before the match, and as a consequence were easily beaten. Finland's star player Eino Soinio, aged only 17 at the time, was chosen to the all-star team of the tournament by Swedish (Sweden) paper ''Idrottsbladet''.

. On January 26, 1993, the WCOTP and IFFTU merged at a convention in Stockholm to form Education International. The stronger membership of the IFFTU at WCOTP expense led both organizations to see merger as a resolution to continuing conflict and competition, and merger was strongly advocated by AFT president Albert Shanker. The collapse of Soviet bloc (Eastern Bloc) communist also helped to remove lingering political differences between the two groups (as well as the reason
, Stockholm, Sweden) was before and during World War II the personal masseur (massage) of Heinrich Himmler. Kersten used his position to aid people persecuted by Nazi Germany, although whether his actions were as decisive as Kersten claimed in his memoirs is not readily verifiable from other sources. He is the author or co-author of 24 books and over 500 articles. His most influential books are ''An Economic Theory of Democracy'' (1957) and ''Inside Bureaucracy'' (1967); widely translated, both are credited as major influences on the public choice school of political economy. Later, Downs concerned himself with housing policy, writing about rent control and housing affordability. ''The Revolution in Real Estate Finance'' (1985) predicted a long-term housing slowdown and decrease in housing prices. Most recently, Downs has involved himself with transportation economics. His book ''Stuck in Traffic'' (1992), which detailed the economic disadvantages of traffic congestion and proposed road pricing as the only effective means of alleviating it, was denounced by traffic engineers for its insistence on the futility of congestion relief measures. However, enough of his gloomy predictions about congestion were proven right that he successfully published a second edition, ''Still Stuck in Traffic'' (2004). Downs' recommendations are starting to see implementation, largely in the form of high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes in the medians of crowded American freeways, and through congestion pricing, already implemented in several cities around the world: Singapore Road pricing Singapore's experience (see Area Licensing Scheme and Electronic Road Pricing); London (see London congestion charge); Stockholm (see Stockholm congestion tax); Valletta, Malta; Controlled Vehicular Access, CVA Technology, 1 May 2007 Valletta traffic congestion considerably reduced and Milan Milan introduces traffic charge Milan Introduces Congestion Charge To Cut Pollution Congestion fee leaves Milan in a jam Bowie drew criticism during the tour for his alleged pro-fascist views. In a 1974 interview he had declared, "Adolf Hitler was one of the first rock stars ... quite as good as Jagger (Mick Jagger) ... He staged a country", Buckley (2000): pp. 289–291. but managed to avoid condemnation. On the ''Station to Station'' tour, however, a series of incidents attracted publicity, starting in April 1976 with his detention by customs in Eastern Europe for possession of Nazi (Nazism) memorabilia. The same month he was quoted in Stockholm as saying that "Britain could benefit from a Fascist leader". Bowie would blame his addictions and the persona of The Thin White Duke for his lapses in judgment. Carr & Murray (1981): p. 11. The controversy culminated on 2 May 1976, shortly before the tour completed, in the so-called 'Victoria Station (London Victoria station) incident' in London, when Bowie arrived in an open-top Mercedes (Mercedes-Benz) convertible and apparently gave a Nazi salute to the crowd that was captured on film and published in ''NME''.
