Famous Assassinations on the Map

Assassination is the act of killing a prominent person for either political, religious or monetary reasons. It is an act that may be done for financial gain, to avenge a grievance, from a desire to acquire fame or notoriety, or because of a military, security, insurgent or secret police group's command to carry out the homicide. Acts of assassination have been performed since ancient times.
