Munich widows call for Olympic ceremony protest

Widows of two Israeli Olympians killed by Palestinian gunmen at the 1972 Munich Olympics are calling on spectators to stage a silent protest during the opening of the London games.


Ankie Spitzer and Ilana Romano are asking audience members to stand in silence when International Olympic Committee chief Jacques Rogge rises to speak at Friday's ceremony. Spitzer, widow of fencing coach Andrei Spitzer, who died in the Munich attack, said the Israeli athletes "were killed at an Olympic venue. They should be honored there." (AP)
