July 27th 1996; a bomb has exploded at a crowded concert in Atlanta, Georgia, the city hosting this year's Olympic Games. Two people are reported to have been killed and fire fighting officials say as many as 200 people may have been injured. The explosion happened at 0125 local time during a rock concert in the Centennial Olympic Park.

Three months ago, the Atlanta Olympic Committee transformed the 21-acre site from an unused area of slums and old warehouses into a popular entertainment venue. It has attracted an estimated 100,000 people day and night who gather to hear music, watch concerts and contests on giant screens or buy souvenirs. A band called Jack Mack and the Heart Attack had just finished playing a song when the bomb went off near a sound tower.
