Canada’s House of Commons unanimously adopted a motion from Liberal MP Irwin Cotler to hold a moment of silence at the 2012 London Olympics in memory of the terror attack and resulting deaths of 11 Israeli athletes and coaches during the 1972 Munich Games.

This summer’s Olympics in London mark the 40th anniversary of the attack.

“Civil society groups and political leaders around the world have been calling on the International Olympic Committee to hold a moment of silence at the opening ceremony of the London Games,” said Cotler. “I am delighted that the Canadian Parliament is the first to unanimously support this call.”
