- ―Amir saying that to McClane during their final showdown [src]
Amir El Kahr was an Middle-Eastern terrorist and an expert of biological warfare. He was secretly hired by Kenny Sinclair and Reese Hoffman to try to biologically attack Las Vegas using his knowledge of biological warfare. He was one of the antagonists in Die Hard Trilogy 2: Viva Las Vegas.
Amir went to Hoffman Biotech, owned by Reese Hoffman himself, and prepared the self-destruction sequence to biologically attack Las Vegas. John McClane overhears from one of the men working for Viktor Rashenko saying that Amir is in the bio lab, getting his bomb ready. As he learns that McClane has arrived in the bio lab, Amir activated the self-destruct sequence which is the timer for his biological bomb. Once McClane took two security card keys and placed them in the auto-destruct penal in the security control room, Amir has the last card key and went into the laser room. As soon as McClane entered the room, Amir seals him in and activates the vertical laser gun. After McClane destroys the four generators above the laser, the cannon was shut down and forces Amir to try to kill McClane himself. Despite being trapped in the room and the terrorist shooting at him, McClane kills Amir and takes the last key card from his body. McClane uses the key card he took from Amir and deactivates the auto-destruct sequence.
