Remembering Munich Olympic Attack, 40 Years Later

On this day in 1972, the Olympics in Munich were ravaged by one of the most memorable terrorist events in history.

Eight Palestinian terrorists killed two Israeli Olympians. They took nine others hostage. The situation wasn't ended until a massive gunfight transpired, killing five of the terrorists and all of the hostages.

The events halted Olympic play for the first time in history.
