1972 Summer Olympics

The Olympic flag, foreground, and flags of participating nations are flown at half-staff during a commemoration ceremony for the victims of the Munich Olympic massacre at the Munich, southern Germany, Olympic stadium in this Sept. 6, 1972 file photo. A 20-hour standoff at the Olympic Village, where a Palestinian terrorist group seized members of the Israeli Olympic team at their quarters at the Munich Olympic Village on Sept. 5, 1972, ended in a tragically botched rescue effort at the airport. In all, 11 Israeli athletes, five of the Palestinians kidnappers and a German policeman were killed. This Thursday, Sept. 5, 2002 sees the 30th anniversary of the tragedy. (AP Photo)
