Link Tunisia with Munich Terrorists

Download PDF for this date

Israeli political circles claimed today that there were indications of a link between Tunisia and the Arab terrorists who murdered 11 Israeli Olympians in Munich. The circles also said there was evidence of a change in Tunisia’s hitherto moderate position on the Middle East conflict.

They referred to reports that the terrorists who invaded the Israeli compound in Olympic Village used walky-talky radios to communicate with an unidentified Tunisian “colonel.” They also noted that Tunisia offered to receive the terrorists and their Israeli hostages and was later ready to accept the bodies of the five terrorists slain by German police. The circles noted that the Tunisian delegation led the funeral procession for the terrorists.
