Munich legal authorities investigating the Olympic killings of 11 Israelis are now hunting for alleged German accomplices of the Arab assassins. The inquiries follow a lead given last week in an interview with the magazine “Quick” by a spokesman of the “Black September” movement. According to the spokesman, eight terrorists had lived on a farm south of Munich between the end of July and the Munich attack Sept. 5. The farm reportedly belonged to a German. A German architect working on the Olympic grounds is said to have given plans of the Israelis’ quarters to the terrorists.
