On this day: 24 October

ON THIS DAY- On this day in 1956, Israel, France, and the UK signed the secret agreement known as the Protocol of Sèvres. The agreement was for the countries to collude militarily and politically to topple President Gamal Abdel Nasser by invading and occupying the Suez Canal zone in response to Nasser’s Suez Canal nationalization, which led to the Suez Crisis. In 1945, the United Nations Organization was formally inaugurated. On this day in 2003, British Airways flew its last transatlantic flight using the Concorde. British Airways had decided to retire the famous aircraft because it was no longer profitable. Enterprise was reporting on the weird move by the government to confiscate sugar owned by Pepsi and Edita, which led them to halt some production lines this time last year.
