1972: Olypmic Terrorism

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, my most vivid memories of any Olympic Games is not for any sporting achievement but for a brutal terrorist act.

It was the 1972 Munich Olympics when a PLO faction group called Black September stormed the Olympic village and took 9 Israeli athletes hostage.

As intense negotiations ensued, the games went on.

In his 1999 book, 'Memoirs Of A Palestinian Terrorist', Abu Daoud admitted masterminding the attack.
