The following events occurred in June 1967:

June 1, 1967 (Thursday)

June 2, 1967 (Friday)

  • During a student protest in West Berlin against the arrival of the Shah of Iran, an unarmed demonstrator, 26-year-old Benno Ohnesorg was shot at close range and in the back of the head by Karl-Heinz Kurras, a West Berlin police officer.[6] In 2009, German investigators would discover that Kurras had been an operative for East Germany's secret police, the Stasi.[7] Ohnesorg's killing, the indifference of the local press, and the lack of punishment of Kurras by the West German government, would result in the founding of the urban guerrilla group 2 June Movement, with the murder providing "a focus around which the Left could organize and draw larger and larger numbers of young people".[8][9]
  • Luis Monge was executed in Colorado's gas chamber[10] On June 28, 1963, Monge had murdered his pregnant wife and three of his children at his home in Denver, then turned himself in to police.[11] Monge would be the last person legally executed in the United States for almost ten years, with the U.S. Supreme Court voiding existing death penalty laws in the 1972 case of Furman v. Georgia.[12]
  • American F-105 jets attacked the North Vietnamese port of Cam Pha and cannon fire struck a Soviet diesel ship, the Turkestan, as it sat in harbor. Nikolai Rybachuk, a Soviet merchant sailor was killed and six others were injured.[13] The United States initially denied that it had struck the Turkestan and attempted to blame the death on North Vietnamese anti-aircraft fire, but conceded 16 days later that the Soviet ship had been strafed by cannon fire from F-105 jets that had participated that day in a third attack on Cam Pha.[14][15]
  • A race riot began in predominantly African-American Roxbury section of Boston,[16] the first of many riots during the hot summer of 1967. When the rioting in Boston ended after three days, 70 people had been injured, 100 arrested, and millions of dollars of property damage had taken place.[17] Violence in June would follow in Philadelphia (June 10), Tampa (June 11), and Cincinnati (June 13),[18] Dayton, Ohio and Lansing, Michigan (June 15),[19] Atlanta (June 20) and Buffalo (June 26)
  • The Goodyear blimp, one of two that had been stationed at Indianapolis for the 500 race earlier in the week, lost gas on its way back to Akron, Ohio and was tangled in high tension electrical power lines to the east of Dunreith, Indiana.[20]
  • An Israeli Defense Forces patrol battled a four-man squad of the Syrian Army, "bringing the first deaths since the onset of the Middle East crisis". One soldier from Syria and two from Israel were killed.[21]

June 3, 1967 (Saturday)

June 4, 1967 (Sunday)

  • Less than 12 hours after the deaths of 83 vacationing British airline passengers on an Air Ferry Limited flight, British Midland Air Lines Flight G-ALHG crashed in Hopes Carr, Stockport, killing 72 passengers and crew.[24] The British Midland plane, a four-engine Argonaut, was bringing holiday travelers back from Majorca and was preparing to land at Manchester when it went down. Another 12 people survived.

June 5, 1967 (Monday)

  • The Six-Day War began as Israel launched a surprise preemptive strike on Egypt shortly after dawn. At 7:10, sixteen Magister Fouga jet trainers began a routine patrol. Four minutes later, the first of 183 Israeli Air Force fighter planes took off from all over Israel, and by 7:30, all but twelve of Israel's 212 fighters were airborne.[25] The armada of jets flew westward over the Mediterranean Sea for 18 minutes, and at 7:48, they turned south for an attack on Egypt. A radar operator in Jordan radioed Egypt with the word Inab ("grape" in Arabic), the code word for an imminent enemy attack, but Egyptian intelligence had changed the code the day before without notice. Attacks began simultaneously at ten Egyptian bases, then on 14 others, and 189 of the Egyptian Air Force's airplanes, more than half of its fleet, were destroyed on the ground.[26] Most of the others were unable to take to the air because of the destruction of the airfields. Without air support, the Egyptian Army in the Sinai was quickly overwhelmed by Israeli bombing.[27] The allied armies of Egypt Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Iraq invaded Israel in retaliation. The Battle of Ammunition Hill became the start of Jordan's ill-fated campaign.
  • As late as 12:30 pm, five hours after the war began, Israel sent a proposal to Jordan's King Hussein by way of the UN Truce Supervisor, General Odd Bull, giving Jordan one final chance to avoid becoming involved in the war. Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban would tell the United Nations two weeks later, "Jordan tragically answered not with words but with a torrent of shells... Surely this responsibility cannot fail to have its consequences in a peace settlement."[28]
  • The Moscow–Washington hotline between the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of the Soviet Union was used in crisis for the first time since its inauguration August 30, 1963. White House Press Secretary George Christian disclosed three days later that the first message sent over the teletype between the Kremlin and the White House had been a message from Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin to U.S. President Lyndon Johnson, with Johnson responding later in the day. Christian told reporters later that exchanges between the two leaders had taken place throughout the war.[29] Kosygin's initial message, which reached the U.S. Department of Defense at 7:15 a.m in Washington (3:15 p.m. in Moscow)[30] was a request that the U.S. exert its influence on Israel to call a cease-fire.[31]
  • Murderer Richard Speck was sentenced to death in the electric chair for killing eight student nurses in Chicago, with a scheduled execution date of September 1, 1967.[32] The death penalty would be declared unconstitutional in 1972 before the sentence could be carried out, and Speck would spend the remainder of his life in prison.
  • After the arrest of 11 leaders of the Alianza Federal de Mercedes in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, armed members of the Mexican-American rights organization arrived at the county seat, Tierra Amarilla, and attempted a citizen's arrest of county district attorney.[33] Two police officers were wounded, and two others were taken hostage by the fleeing invaders. In response, members of the New Mexico State Police and the New Mexico National Guard raided a picnic of Alianza members and their families at Canjilon, New Mexico, and kept the men, women and children on the grounds for 24 hours despite any indication that they were connected to the courthouse shooting. In 1970, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights would prosecute Sanchez and other members of law enforcement for illegal arrests and for repressing the right of free assembly.[34]

Another American newsman, NBC producer Ted Yates, was fatally wounded the same day while accompanying the Israeli invasion of East Jerusalem and died the next day. Ben Oyserman, an Israeli photographer on assignment for the Canadian Broadcasting Company, was killed the next day when he accidentally tripped a booby trap.[35]
    • Arthur Biram, 88, German-born Israeli educator who founded the first Jewish high school in Ottoman Palestine in 1913, died of natural causes during the first day of the Six Day War.

June 6, 1967 (Tuesday)

  • East Jerusalem was captured in a battle conducted by Israeli forces without the use of artillery, in order to avoid damage to the Holy City.[36][37]
  • Egypt's President Nasser narrowly missed being killed after ordering a plane to fly him over the battlefront in the Sinai. When Nasser's advisers were unable to persuade him not to risk his life, they arranged for him to make the inspection in an unmarked small plane in hopes that the "lumbering, flimsy craft, more for Sunday joy riding than battlefield inspection, would fly too slow and too low to be nailed by the near-supersonic Israeli jets".[38] Twenty minutes after it crossed the Suez Canal at Ismailia, the plane found itself over a procession of Israeli tanks at an altitude of only 50 feet. An Israeli fighter pilot, unaware that the enemy's President was on the plane, dived at it twice in a strafing run but was unable to shoot it down. Nasser then had the pilot fly north to inspect Bir Hassana and, seeing the ruins of Egypt's armored division, ordered the pilot return to Cairo.
  • The eleven oil-exporting Arab nations announced a halt of shipments to the United States and the United Kingdom, with Iraq and Kuwait halting oil exports, Lebanon banning the loading at its ports of oil from Saudi Arabian or Iraqi oil, and Algeria placing six American oil companies there under state control.[39]
  • Egypt announced the closure of the Suez Canal to all ships in retaliation for American and British support to Israel during the Six-Day War.[40]
  • United Nations Security Council Resolution 233 was unanimously adopted without debate, expressing concern "at the outbreak of fighting and with the menacing situation in the Near East", and calling upon the participants in the Six-Day War "to take forthwith as a first step all measures for an immediate cease-fire and for a cessation of all military activities in the area", but did not demand that either side withdraw from captured territory.[41] The next day, Resolution 234 was adopted, clarifying that the UN was asking all parties to discontinue fighting by 2000 hours UTC (midnight in Egypt, 11:00 pm in Israel, Jordan and Syria). Starting with Jordan, the Arab nations began accepting Resolution 233 and would halt fighting with Israel by the end of the week.

Pogue, who would later orbit the earth in the Skylab 4 space station mission.[43]

June 7, 1967 (Wednesday)

  • "The Israeli Defense Forces have liberated Jerusalem," Defense Minister Moshe Dayan announced to the nation. "We have reunited the torn city, the capital of Israel. We have returned to this most sacred shrine, never to part from it again."[44] For the first time since 1948, the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem was open to Jewish worshipers. Chief Rabbi Solomon Goren joined 150 Israeli paratroopers who had recaptured the eastern half of the city from Jordan. Five minutes after the Israeli Army broke open the brass-covered doors of the Damascus Gate at the walls outside the Dome of the Rock, the Jordanian governor of the city surrendered and promised that the 25,000 residents inside the walls would offer no resistance.[45] Over the next few weeks, "approximately 160 Arab houses facing the Wailing Wall were demolished... to make way for a large prayer area."[46]
  • At noon, Israel and Jordan agreed to a cease-fire called for by the United Nations Security Council. Israel's Foreign Minister Abba Eban informed the Secretary-General of the agreement 45 minutes later.[47] A few hours before the cease-fire had gone into effect, Israeli jets attacked King Hussein's personal residence in an apparent attempt to assassinate him. Two days earlier, when the war started, Israel followed up its raid on the Amman airport with an attack on the Basman Palace, and struck the former location of his office.[48]

June 8, 1967 (Thursday)

  • Thirty-four U.S. Navy sailors aboard the spy ship USS Liberty were killed, and 171 wounded, when the vessel was strafed by Israeli jet fighters and then torpedoed by Israeli gunboats while in international waters in the Mediterranean Sea about 15 miles from the Sinai peninsula. The air attack by Mirage jets began at 1210 UTC (2:10 p.m. local time) and the ship was torpedoed 25 minutes later.[50] Eight American attack planes from the aircraft carriers USS America and USS Saratoga were en route to engage the Israelis in combat when the word came from Israel that the attack on the Liberty had been made by mistake.[51]
  • The United Arab Republic (Egypt) agreed to the United Nations resolution calling for a cease-fire with Israel, shortly after Israeli forces defeated the remaining Egyptian soldiers fighting in the Sinai peninsula and blocked their escape routes back across the Suez Canal.[52][53]
  • According to the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights, the Israeli Defense Forces had massacred hundreds of Egyptian prisoners of war or wounded soldiers in the Sinai peninsula, earlier in the day. Survivors alleged later that about 400 wounded Egyptians were buried alive outside the captured El Arish International Airport, and that 150 prisoners in the mountains of the Sinai were run over by Israeli tanks.[54]
  • Two Soviet warships "darted in and out" of a group of American warships that were part of the Sixth Fleet task group on training maneuvers in the Mediterranean, south of the Greek island of Crete. A Soviet patrol craft sailed between the U.S. Navy destroyers USS Sampson and USS Byrd to come within 800 yards of the USS America as it was launching jets, while Soviet destroyer No. 626 cut in the path of the America.[55] On the same day, the Soviet Union commenced an operation to intervene on behalf of Syria, with plans to drop paratroopers "between and advancing Israeli army and Damascus"[56] but the plan became moot two days later with the loss of the Golan Heights and Syria's acceptance of the UN cease-fire.
  • Elections were held in South Korea for the 175 seats of the National Assembly. Despite winning a little more than half of the valid votes (5,494,922 out of 10,857,008), the ruling Democratic Republican Party of President Park Chung-hee won almost 74% of the seats (129 out of 175).[57]
  • Chicago Police Superintendent O. W. Wilson issued an order, effective July 10, directing that all members of the Chicago Police Department would wear hats with checkered bands. The distinctive look, still in effect half a century later, was implemented to end the practice by other groups that wore uniforms that closely resembled those of the city police as a means of extorting prostitutes and other offenders. A separate city ordinance made it illegal for any group to duplicate the checkered hat band.[58]

  • Israel took control of the Golan Heights from Syria by 6:30 in the evening, after routing the Syrians who had been firing mortar shells from the high ground.[53]
  • Gamal Abdel Nasser announced that he was resigning as President of Egypt, in an address broadcast on nationwide radio and television, and said that he was turning over the presidential duties to one of his vice presidents, Zakaria Mohieddin.[59] After he finished his broadcast, tens of thousands of supporters marched to his residence and urged him to reconsider. Another statement followed on Cairo radio that evening, credited to Nasser, saying "The feelings shown by the masses of the people since my broadcast this evening on the development of the situation have profoundly touched me," and that he would discuss the matter with the National Assembly the next day. When the legislators told him that they would not accept it, Nasser withdrew his resignation.[60]
  • Ann Pellegreno and a crew of three people (co-pilot William Payne, navigator William Polhemus, and mechanic Leo Koepke) set out from Oakland to fly around the world in an airplane, following the flight plan that Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan had used on their ill-fated flight in 1937.[61] Earhart had piloted a Lockheed Model 10-E Electra and Pellegreno used a similar plane, Koepke's Model 10-A Electra. The Earhart Commemorative Flight would be a success, returning to Oakland on July 7 after flying 28,000 miles in 28 days.[62]

June 10, 1967 (Saturday)

  • The Six-Day War ended five days after it started, as Syria and Israel agreed to a United Nations-mediated cease-fire at 6:00 in the evening.[63][64] Having taken the Golan Heights, Israel seized the Syrian town of Kuneitra and was in a position to take the capital, Damascus, 40 miles away. During the war, Israel's losses were 777 dead and 2,586 wounded; Egypt, Syria and Jordan had suffered 15,000 deaths and lost hundreds of tanks and airplanes, along with the Sinai peninsula, the Golan Heights, and the West Bank, respectively.[53]

Moore, who issued the declaration, sent telegrams to 21 American oil companies advising him of the action and called on them to meet in Washington on June 13 to begin work on plans to avoid disruption. At the time, the United States imported less than five percent of its oil from Arab nations.[66]
  • The Soviet Union severed diplomatic relations with Israel with the delivery of a diplomatic note to the Israeli ambassador in Moscow, declaring that it was acting "in light of Israel's continued aggression against the Arab states and its flagrant violation of the decisions of the Security Council".[67]

  • Former Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion suggested that an autonomous Palestinian Arab state be formed by Israel within the recently captured West Bank. Under Ben-Gurion's vision, "the state could be linked in an economic treaty with Israel, have guaranteed access to the Mediterranean Sea, and be protected by Israeli troops". He suggested also that Israel should offer to conclude a treaty that would allow Jordan an outlet on the Mediterranean, but added that the recently acquired city of Jerusalem should not be given back to Jordan. "We will never discuss this with any party," he wrote. "Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel since the days of King David, and so it shall remain forever and ever."[105]

The next day, Ali's lawyers filed an appeal. Ali remained free on a $5,000 bond pending the outcome of the review of the case. Though barred from boxing professionally, Ali would spend the next three years on the lecture circuit at colleges, and would be an actor on film and even in a Broadway musical (Big Time Buck White) before the United States Supreme Court would reverse the conviction on June 28, 1970.[110]

  • Soviet Union President Nikolai V. Podgorny arrived for a state visit to Cairo and arranged for the replacement of Egyptian Air Force planes that had been destroyed during the Six Day War. By July 15, the new aircraft would be delivered, thousands of Soviet military advisers arrived in Egypt, and Soviet ships arrived at Egyptian ports at the request of President Nasser. "For a leader who had once struggled to rid Egypt of any foreign military presence," a historian would write later, "the Soviet presence was a humiliating symbol of Egypt's plight."[119] Over three weeks, the Egyptian arsenal was replenished with 93 MiG-17 jet fighters, 71 MiG-21 supersonic fighter-interceptors, 38 Sukhoi aircraft and 100 tanks.[120]

He and two younger recruits found a blue-ringed octopus and were taking it back to their barracks. Private Ward made the mistake of placing the small creature on his arm, unaware of its highly poisonous venom, and was bitten. According to his companions, Ward had been unaware of the bite until he began feeling dizzy and was unable to breathe, and he died less than 90 minutes later at the Prince Henry Hospital.[125]

  • U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson met with Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin in Glassboro, New Jersey, for the 3-day Glassboro Summit Conference.[126] The town of only 10,000 people was chosen because it was approximately midway between New York City and Washington and "mutually convenient" to the leaders' schedules.[127] The meeting was held at 11:00 in the morning on the campus of Glassboro State College at the home of the college's president, Thomas Robinson. Kosygin informed Johnson that there would be no discussions about halting the arms race between the two superpowers until the Vietnam War ended.[128]
  • Johnson flew to Los Angeles after the summit in Glassboro, and encountered a large protest rally outside the Century Plaza Hotel, where he was addressing a $500 a person fundraising dinner. At least 10,000 antiwar demonstrators were gathered outside the hotel when members of the Los Angeles Police Department gave two warnings to disperse, the protesters chose to ignore the warnings and the police were forced to deal with the unruly mob.[129] One historian would later note that "Los Angeles became the first city in the country to break up an antiwar march with violence."[130]
  • The United States Senate voted, 92 to 5, to censure U.S. Senator Thomas J. Dodd of Connecticut for more than $116,000 of campaign contributions, for his personal benefit.[131] There was no interruption in his ongoing term.[132] By a 51 to 45 vote, however, the Senate removed a second charge against Dodd accusing him of "double billing", charging the same travel expenses to the Senate and private organizations. Dodd was found to have used more than $116,000 in campaign contributions for his own use. The action against Dodd, a white Senator, contrasted with the punishment meted against black U.S. Representative Adam Clayton Powell Jr. in January, blocking Powell from taking his seat because of his conversion of House funds for personal use. Connecticut's Democratic Party would decline to renominate him for re-election in 1970, and he would lose as an independent candidate to Lowell Weicker.[133]
  • All 34 people aboard Mohawk Airlines Flight 40 were killed when the tail section of the BAC-111 fanjet broke off in midflight and the plane crashed into a hillside near Blossburg, Pennsylvania. The accident happened shortly after the flight's takeoff from Elmira, New York en route to Washington, D.C.[134]
  • At a track and field meet in Bakersfield, California, two world athletic records were broken on the same day. Paul Wilson cleared the pole vault at 17 feet, 8 inches, breaking the record of 17'7" set by Bob Seagran. Jim Ryun ran one mile in 3 minutes, 51.1 seconds, breaking his previous world record of 3:51.3.[135]

  • Died: Franz Babinger, 76, German historian

June 24, 1967 (Saturday)

  • Pope Paul VI formally issued the papal encyclical Sacerdotalis caelibatus, reaffirming the historic rule of clerical celibacy for the Roman Catholic Church clergy and the ban against marriage. Although the Second Vatican Council had declined to address the matter, the Pope issued the decision. Swiss Catholic priest and theologian Hans Küng would comment that the rule was made "without consulting the bishops in any way... with crass disregard of the collegiality which had been ceremonially decided on at the Council."[136] "Priestly celibacy has been guarded by the church for centuries as a brilliant jewel," the Pope wrote in an encyclical, "and retains its value undiminished even in our time when mentality and structures have undergone such profound changes."[137]
  • President Joseph Mobutu of the Democratic Republic of the Congo decreed a nationwide monetary reform in response to inflation, replacing the Congolese franc with a new currency, the zaire. Each zaire was worth 1,000 old francs, which had dropped in value by 70%.[138] After more than 25 years more of inflation, the nouveau zaire would be introduced in 1993, worth Ƶ 3,000,000 (or three billion Congolese francs) Five years later, the Congolese franc would be brought back at the rate of NƵ 100,000 (300 billion old zaires or 300 trillion old francs.
  • The British nuclear submarine HMS Dreadnought torpedoed the wreckage of the West German tanker Essberger Chemist in order to remove a shipping hazard near the Azores Islands.[139] Despite being struck by three bombs, the tanker failed to sink immediately and had to be finished off by gunfire from the Royal Navy frigate HMS Salisbury. The ship had exploded on June 2, but all 39 crew had been rescued, unharmed, by the Norwegian freighter Tomarand the Greek tugboat Nisos Zakinthos.[140]
  • Tornadoes, rarely seen in Europe, killed at least 22 people and injured 200 as they swept across France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Six villages in the Nord Department of France, near Douai, were struck, killing seven and injuring 40, while six were killed and 17 hurt in the Dutch provinces of Noord-Brabant and Gelderland, with the villages of Chaam, Tricht and Buurmalsen particularly hard hit. In Belgium, the village of Oostmalle was heavily damaged. Heavy rainstorms in northern England led to the deaths of five cave explorers near Conistone, who drowned after a rain-swollen stream flooded their underground cavern.[141]
  • Born: Janez Lapajne, Slovenian film director, in Celje, Slovenian SR, Yugoslavia

June 25, 1967 (Sunday)

  • An estimated 400 million viewers around the world watched Our World, the first live, international, satellite television production. The two-hour program was seen in 26 nations on five continents.[142] In the UK, the show began at 8:00 p.m. UTC on BBC-1,[143] and in the United States, it was seen starting at 3:00 pm Eastern time, 12 noon Pacific, on the National Educational Television (NET) stations.[144] The Australian Broadcasting Corporation carried the live program in the early morning hours of Monday the 26th, where it began at 5:00 in the morning in Sydney.[145] The telecast opened with the birth of a baby in Mexico City.[146] and the debut of The Beatles' song "All You Need Is Love" from London. The Soviet Union and its Eastern European allies had withdrawn from participation three days earlier as a protest against the Six-Day War.[147]
  • President Johnson and Prime Minister Kosygin had a second meeting in Glassboro, New Jersey, the day after the Soviet Premier had made a visit to Niagara Falls.[148]

June 26, 1967 (Monday)

  • The White House staff announced in Washington that negotiators for the United States and Panama and reached agreement on a treaty regarding the Panama Canal. Although terms of the treaty were not released, informed sources said that the purpose was for the U.S. to replace the 1903 treaty, share responsibility for the operation and management of the canal with Panama, and give Panama sovereignty over the Panama Canal Zone, at the time a U.S. territory.[149]
  • A race riot began in Buffalo, New York and would continue until July 1, during which 200 people would be arrested.
  • Two officers of the Syrian Army, Major Salim Hatoum and Major Badr Jumaa, were executed for treason the day after they were said to have confessed that they had plotted to overthrow the Syrian government on behalf of the American, British and West German intelligence agencies. Major Hatoum, who had fled to Jordan after an unsuccessful coup attempt in September, had returned to fight in the Six-Day War after a general amnesty for political offenders had been announced.[150]
  • Born: Luisito Espinosa, Philippine boxer, WBA bantamweight champion 1989-1991 and WBC featherweight champion 1995-1999; in Manila
  • Died: Françoise Dorléac, 25, French film actress, was killed in a car accident when she lost control of a rented automobile while driving at high speed to catch a flight from the Nice Côte d'Azur Airport. Her car burst into flames after colliding with a highway sign near Villeneuve-Loubet.

June 27, 1967 (Tuesday)

Plaque commemorating installation of world's first bank cash machine
  • The first automated teller machine (ATM) or automatic cash machine began service, at a branch of Barclays Bank in Enfield Town in North London. The system used printed "Barclaycash" vouchers that were "issued, free of charge, to pre-approved customers who were also entrusted with a personal code number".[151] The procedure was for a customer to put the voucher in the automatic drawer; when a green light came on, the customer then entered the personal code, the machine checked the account balance, and another drawer would open, containing a £10 note for each voucher. Inventor John Shepherd-Barron of the De La Rue banknote printing company perfected the machine and British television star Reg Varney appeared in the advertising campaign. Shepherd-Brown had originally planned to have the machine respond to a six-digit PIN but "discovered that his wife could not remember more than four digits, thus the worldwide standard for PINs is four digits."[152]
  • Fu Ti-kuang, the chargé d'affaires for the People's Republic of China embassy in East Germany was killed, along with two other Chinese diplomats and the car's driver, in a head-on collision with a truck north of Neustrelitz, causing a rift between the two Communist nations. After Foreign Minister Otto Winzer visited the embassy and said that the Chinese driver had been at fault for driving into oncoming traffic while trying to pass a truck on rainy day, the staff put up posters in German that said "Down with the German revisionists who murdered our comrades!" and a diplomat shouted at passersby "German Nazis, murderers, modern revisionists, German blood must flow to wash away the blood of our murdered comrades!" The crowd was shouting back insults when police dispersed them with a water cannon.[153]
  • Carl Wilson, the lead guitarist of The Beach Boys, was acquitted by a federal court judge in Los Angeles of charges of draft evasion.[154] Wilson testified that he was a conscientious objector, the defense that had been rejected earlier in the month for Muhammad Ali.

June 28, 1967 (Wednesday)

  • Israel extended its jurisdiction over East Jerusalem and its suburbs, which had been captured earlier in the month from Jordan, the day after the Knesset had approved the right of Israel's municipal government to extend its authority to old city. Under the legislation, the municipal government that had been led by a Palestinian mayor and city council was dissolved. Jordan had annexed the eastern section of the city on April 24, 1950; Israel would not formally annex the eastern section until June 30, 1980, when the Knesset passed the Jerusalem Law.[155] Another bill provided that safeguards would be set so that people of all religions (Judaism, Islam and Christianity) would have access to the shrines in the Holy City, and a final law provided a penalty of seven years imprisonment for anyone desecrating a shrine.[156]
  • At the same time, the Bank of Israel announced that the Israeli pound would be the only legal currency in the unified Jerusalem, and set an exchange rate of 7 1/2 Jordanian dinars for the pound for three days.[157]
  • Pope Paul VI formally ordained 24 new cardinals at a ceremony in the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, conferring upon each of them a red biretta emblematic of the Roman Catholic church cardinalate. For the first time in church history, the cardinals were required to recite an oath. The newly ordained cardinals included Archbishop Karol Wojtyla, who would, in 1978, become Pope John Paul II, and would later be made a Roman Catholic saint.[158]
  • Hussein Maziq resigned as Prime Minister of Libya after Arab nationalists rioted following Egypt's defeat by Israel. King Idris installed Abdul Qadir al-Badri as a "law and order" leader to suppress the demonstrators and to end a strike by oil workers.[159]

June 29, 1967 (Thursday)

  • The "Green Line" that had marked the boundary between Israeli Jerusalem and Jordanian Jerusalem, was dismantled by order of Defense Minister Moshe Dayan. Over a period of days, 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) of barbed wire, along with "several concrete ramparts, fifty-five fortified guard stations, and hundreds of mines in the buffer zone" were removed and, "True to his military objective and his public promise to extend 'the hand of peace' to Israel's Arab neighbors, Dayan ushered in a period of relative peace and cooperation in Jerusalem that lasted until the start of the first intifada in 1987."[160]
  • The U.S. Department of the Post Office announced a new service where, for one dollar, one could locate the last recorded change of address of a person who had moved away, under the Freedom of Information Act.[161]
  • The Chamber of Deputies of Luxembourg abolished compulsory military service and created a small "battalion-size" army of volunteers who served 3-year enlistments.[162]
  • Born: Jeff Burton, American NASCAR driver; in South Boston, Virginia
  • Died:
    • Jayne Mansfield, 34, American film and stage actress, was killed along with her friend, Sam Brody, and Ronnie Harrison, the driver of the car in which she was riding. At about 1:00 in the morning, Mansfield's car came around a narrow curve on U.S. Highway 90 and crashed underneath a commercial truck that had slowed down behind another vehicle. Mansfield was 23 miles from New Orleans, where she had been scheduled to appear on a noon television program. Although she was not decapitated, as would first be reported, the top of her head was sheared off by the impact. Three of her children, who were sitting in the back of the car, were hospitalized with minor injuries.[163]
    • Primo Carnera, 60, Italian boxer and former world heavyweight champion, died of cirrhosis of the liver.

June 30, 1967 (Friday)

  • Moise Tshombe, the former prime minister of the Democratic Republic of the Congo until he led the secession of the Katanga province, was kidnapped to Algeria,[164] where he would be imprisoned for the rest of his life. Tshombe, who had lived in exile in Spain since 1965, had been convicted by a court in Leopoldville in absentia for treason, and had been given a death sentence on March 12. Persuaded to invest in the purchase of land in Spain, Tshombe boarded a Hawker Siddeley air taxi for a 10-minute flight from Ibiza to Palma de Majorca, along with his two Spanish bodyguards, four other passengers, and the two British pilots. As the plane flew over the Mediterranean Sea between the two islands, one of the passengers, mercenary soldier Francis Bodenan, hijacked the aircraft at gunpoint and directed the pilots to an air base at Boufarik.[165][166]
  • NASA, the American space agency, announced the selection of U.S. Air Force Major Robert H. Lawrence Jr. as the first African-American astronaut.[167] Less than six months later, however, Lawrence would be killed while training a pilot to fly an F-104 Starfighter jet.
  • Thai Airways International Flight 601, a Caravelle jet flying from Taipei to Hong Kong, crashed into Kowloon Bay as it was making its approach to the runway at Kai Tak Airport. Rescue boats and helicopters raced to the scene and were able to save the lives of 56 of the 80 people on board.[168]
