British Prime Minister David Cameron led the tributes, appealing to the mourners to remember the 11 dead as fathers, husbands and athletes who did nothing more than represent their country in sport.
“As the world comes together in London to celebrate the games and the values it represents, it is right that we should stop and remember the 11 Israeli athletes who so tragically lost their lives when those values came under attack in Munich 40 years ago,” he said. “It was a truly shocking act of evil. A crime against the Jewish people. A crime against humanity. A crime the world must never forget.”
