What really happened after the 1972 massacre of 11 Israeli athletes in Munich? Former Mossad agents explain. Duration 47m31s

Set after the massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics, Steven Spielberg's latest film Munich follows a secret Israeli squad assigned to track down and kill the 11 Palestinians suspected of having planned the attack.

At the beginning of the film, Spielberg and the screenwriter Tony Kushner state that it was only 'inspired' by true events, and they have admitted that much of the detail is fictional. Channel 4's documentary "Munich: Mossad's revenge" investigates what really happened in the years after the 1972 Olympics.

The revenge no doubt ended with the deaths of innocent people.
