London stops burning, the First Continental Congress meets, terrorists target Israeli Olympians in Munich, and Mother Teresa passes away, all on this day.
1972: A Palestinian terrorist group called "Black September" attacks and takes 11 Israel athletes hostage at the Munich Olympic Games. Two of the athletes were killed in the attack and the other nine would die the following day during a failed rescue attempt by German police officers that also left five of the eight terrorists dead. This memorial plaque stands in front of the Israeli athletes' quarters commemorating the victims.
