On September 5 a group of eight Palestinian terrorists belonging to the Black September organization broke into the Olympic Village and took eleven Israeli athletes, coaches and officials hostage in their apartments. Two of the hostages who resisted were killed in the first moments of the break-in; the subsequent standoff in the Olympic Village lasted for almost 18 hours.

This event has come to be known as the Munich massacre
A Palestinian terrorist group called "Black September" broke into the Olympic Village and took 11 Israeli athletes' hostage.

An attempt by the German army to rescue the hostages failed and all the hostages were killed. Five of the terrorists died and three were captured.

Members of the Israeli team were taken hostage by an Arab terrorist organization.

Palestenian terrorists broke into the quarters of the Israeli Olympic team and held them hostage. They demanded a bus take them to the airport and 2 helicopters. At that airport, the German police tried to stop the terrorists and a gun fight resulted. A terrorist tossed a grenade into one helicopter killing all the hostages.

11 Israelis who represented their country(innocent bunch who had nothing with politics) got kidnapped by terrorists from the Palestinian terror cell known as Black September. After not getting their demands, they executed the Israelis.
