Munich Olympics - Black September Hostage Situation
AIRED:
With a war raging in Vietnam and tensions rising in the Middle East, the 1972 Olympic Games promised hope and unity in a troubled time until a group called Black September captured and killed 11 Israeli athletes. It started as a hostage situation in the Olympic village and ended in a shoot-out between the Palestinian terror group and West German police. ABC News takes you back to September, 5, 1972, with exclusive interviews with members of Israeli team that narrowly escaped and reporting from Peter Jennings inside the Olympic village.moreless
