First Woman to make FBI's most wanted terrorists list with $2m bounty
She was jailed in 1977 for executing a cop in 1973 but was broken out of the Clinton Correctional Facility (jail) 2 years later in 1979 by members of her Black Liberation Army.
She lived in hiding for years before surfacing in Cuba where she was granted political asylum in 1984 and has been openly living there since. She lives under the name of Assata Shakur, her brother was Tupac's stepfather.
The US authorities continue to hunt for her and work towards recapturing her and they have just doubled the bounty on her head to $2m.
