On 27 September 1993, Abkhazian separatists, backed by their Russian and North Caucasian allies, broke the cease-fire and engaged in ethnic cleansing in the city of Sukhumi in Georgia.

1996 : Julie N. crashes into the Million Dollar

September 27, 1996, the Liberian tanker Julie N. hit the Million Dollar Bridge in Portland, Maine and let out 700,000 liters of fuel in the Fore River estuary. The Million Dollar Bridge, built in 1916, had a width which was not adapted to super tankers. At the time of the accident, a new bridge, the Casco Bay Bridge, more modern, was under construction. The accident, although many of the chemicals was recovered, caused great damage to the flora and fauna.

2001 : Zug massacre

On September 27, 2001, a heavily armed man entered the parliament of the Canton of Zug and shot 91 times before killing himself. 14 people were killed and 18 others were injured. After the massacre, the security measures at government buildings, which were minimal so far, have been greatly strengthened and the people who had threatened the government and who possessed weapons have been overseen by the police.
