BERLIN – The Bavarian state government held memorial services on Wednesday in Munich and at the Fürstenfeldbruck Air Base, where Black September terrorists on September 5, 1972, attacked Israeli Olympic sportsmen.

The Palestinian attack resulted in the murders of 11 Israelis and a German police officer.

Vice Premier Silvan Shalom traveled to the southern German state to participate in the memorials with a 21-member Israel delegation, including widows and family members of the Israeli victims of the massacre.
