[His] group, also known as the Baader-Meinhof gang, targeted bankers, businessmen, judges and US servicemen.Oh, fabulous. Perhaps Klar will attend the Oscars alongside the actor who portrays him in the celebrated film. From Red Army to red carpet.
More than 30 people were killed by the gang, before it disbanded 10 years ago....
Along with the principal targets of their terror, bodyguards and drivers were gunned down.
In one case, the head of a bank was assassinated at his home, after being presented with a bunch of flowers by the killers.
This year's film - The Baader Meinhof Complex - by Uli Edel, has been named as Germany's official entry for the 2009 foreign language film Oscar.

Convicted of 9 murders, sentenced to 5 life terms, Red Army Faction leader Christian Klar must be set free after only 26 years.
Under German law, there is no ground to hold him any longer.
