|On September 4, 1997, Diana Campuzano, an American visiting Israel, was the victim of a terrorist attack which took the lives of seven people and injured 192, 8 critically. Diana was one of the 2 most critically injured.||Diana's picture, her face completely covered in blood, was carried by Newsweek, USA Today, and a number of other newspapers and magazines around the country. In spite of the odds against her, Diana survived.||These are actual photos of Diana and her friends before and after the terrorist attack, then-Prime Minister Benjamin Natanyahu visiting one of Diana's friends in Hadassah Hospital, and newspaper clippings of the carnage.|
Please note that although the following photographs depict Diana's personal tragedy, the screenplay, INNOCENT TARGET, is not about medical recovery or even her ailments. The screenplay contains a considerable number of action scenes involving military operations against terrorist cells on sea, air and land.
Most of the story takes place in the U.S. and Israel, with one scene in Paris, where Israeli Intelligence track down their "most wanted" terrorist and wind up killing his money source in a gun battle.
In short, the story is a mixture of many aspects of suspense, action and thriller, with Diana's injuries and recovery being only about ten percent of the story.
In the summer of 2002, FOX TV interviewed Diana and ran a story on her.
On January 6th, 2003, Diana went to Washington D.C. to testify before the Federal Government in a suit brought on behalf of her and others against Iran for backing the terrorist group Hezbala.
The suit was won in September of 2003. The State Department subsequently refused to divulge the whereabouts of the defendants' assets, making collecting difficult.
The victims are now rallying around a new law that would require the State Department to disclose such information.
