How did the assassination of archduke franz ferdinand act as a catalyst for war

The heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne Archduke Franz Ferdinand announced an official visit to Sarajevo, a Serbian terrorist organisation called the Black Hand decided it was time to strike. They recruited and trained student activists and armed them with weapons.

Their mission was to assassinate Franz Ferdinand and then commit suicide so they could not be caught and questioned. The young students including GavriloPrincip believed their cause to be just.

Franz Ferdinand was travelling with his wife Sophie to a party, the streets were lined with crowds cheering the couple as they waved, the 3 students hid within these crowds intent on murder. As the motorcar passed the students one threw a bomb, it narrowly missed Franz Ferdinand but hit the car behind injuring passengers and onlookers. Chaos spread as the royals rushed to safety.

The Archduke decided to visit those who had been injured in the attack that day, his driver took a wrong turn past GavriloPrincip who took his chance to kill the heir, grabbing his pistol he fired at almost point blank range hitting Franz Ferdinand in the neck and Sophie in the stomach. The driver raced back but the Archduke and his wife had died before help could get to them. Princip swallowed his cyanide but the poison failed and he was arrested along with the other students. They soon revealed they were part of the Black Hand.
