Israel is to continue to fight for a fitting tribute to be held at the Montreal Olympics in memory of the 11 Israeli athletes killed at the Munich games four years ago. Foreign Minister Yigal Allon and Education Minister Aharon Yadlin met Sunday with leaders of the Israeli Olympic Committee and decided to continue pressure upon friendly governments on this issue. Israel is demanding that the memory of the massacred athletes be marked during the Montreal opening ceremony.
