Today in history

Today is Saturday, Nov. 10, the 315th day of 2012. There are 51 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2010, West Ranch High School girls tennis team entered the postseason as a No. 1 overall seed, the first time for any team in the school’s history. The Wildcats defeated Atascadero 15-3 in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Division III playoffs at West Ranch High School

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 10, 1972, three armed men hijacked Southern Airways Flight 49, a DC-9 with 24 other passengers on board during a stopover in Birmingham, Ala., and demanded $10 million in ransom. (The 30-hour ordeal, which involved landings in nine U.S. cities and Toronto, finally ended with a second landing in Cuba, where the hijackers were taken into custody by Cuban authorities.)

Ten years ago: Bush administration officials promised “zero tolerance” if Saddam Hussein refused to comply with international calls to disarm. About a dozen tornadoes killed 36 people in Tennessee, Ohio, Alabama, Mississippi and Pennsylvania.

Five years ago: Six U.S. troops died in an insurgent ambush, making 2007 the deadliest year for American forces in Afghanistan since 2001. During an Ibero-American summit in Santiago, Chile, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez kept interrupting Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero as he defended his predecessor, Jose Maria Aznar, whom Chavez had repeatedly referred to as a “fascist”; Spain’s King Juan Carlos finally told Chavez, “Why don’t you shut up?”
