Family receives murdered Munich athlete's ID card

JERUSALEM — After a four-decade wait, the family of an Israeli athlete murdered by Palestinian terrorists at the 1972 Munich Olympics has received his ID card.
Eliezer Halfin was among 11 Israeli Olympic athletes killed in the terrorist attack. A German police officer recovered the card and held on to it until his death. Israeli officials said the officer's son recently found the card and delivered it to the Israeli Embassy in Berlin.
German diplomats presented the card to Halfin's sister at a ceremony in Jerusalem on Wednesday.
