September 5-6, 1972: Six members of the Palestinian terrorist group known as Black September storm the Olympic village apartments of 21 Isreali athletes and officials at the Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany. Two athletes were killed during the break in and nine were held hostage. In turn for their release the terrorists demanded the release of over 230 terrorists held in Isreali prisons. 
Twenty hours later, five terrorists and all nine Isreali athletes were killed during the failed rescue attempt at a Munich airport. Three terrorists survived and were imprisoned but were later set free when Arab terrorists hijacked a Lufthansa airliner and demanded their release. 
The Isreali government later hired Mossad agents to track down and kill the Black September assassins.
