The world must “never forget” the terrorist attacks that killed Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics, David Cameron has said.
On the 40th anniversary of the attack, the Prime Minister led tributes to the 11 men who lost their lives on “one of the darkest days in the history of the Olympic Games”.
He said Britain understands the terrible impact of terrorism as the London 2012 Olympics were announced the day before the bombings on July 7, 2005.
