Olympics: Moment of silence for Munich massacre victims for the first time


A moment of silence was observed in the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics for the Israeli victims of the 1972 Munich massacre.


During the 1972 Olympics, 11 Israeli athletes and coaches were murdered by eight Palestinian terrorists in Munich.


This is the first time the victims were honored in the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.


The families of the 11 victims had long asked the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to hold a minute's silence at the opening ceremony, but had until Friday been turned down.
