Germany, Families of 1972 Munich Massacre Victims Reach Compensation Breakthrough

(JNS) The families of the Israeli athletes murdered during the 1972 Munich Olympics have reached an agreement with the German government regarding compensation for what the families claim was Germany’s mishandling of the terror attack and its aftermath, Israeli media reported.

As a result, they have agreed to attend an upcoming event in Germany marking 50 year since the tragedy, after threatening to boycott it over the dispute with Germany over the matter, according to Ynet.

The German government convened a special cabinet meeting to discuss the issue, according to the Ynet report. A high-level German official present at the meeting reportedly stated that the discussions regarding the issue were of the utmost significance for the German government.
