A memorial service was held in London on Monday evening, to commemorate the eleven Israeli athletes killed in the Munich Olympics terror attack in 1972. Hundreds of people attended the service and remembered the victims during a minute of silence.

British Prime Minister David Cameron called the terror attack "one of the darkest days in the history of the Olympic Games."

“It was a truly shocking act of evil,” he said. “A crime against the Jewish people. A crime against humanity. A crime the world must never forget."
