6:04 pm
a. benjamin what stood out to you in today's ceremony was a very emotional ceremony. so we had strong words, a boy german president, frankfort austin, may, who finally apologized as the had of said for the failures that we saw during this olympic games during this terror attacks. not only by not being able to protect the israeli delegation, but also by the failures by german police. poorly prepared a german police that had this botched rescue attempt. they went to prepare for that . and after that, all of the israeli athletes were killed. so we had that was really, really strong. we also it israel to president, is a cancer and on ky schmidt. so who's the widow of one of the israeli athletes? she said that many have asked if this now closure for her, but she said that the closure will never come. there's always will be a hole in her heart, and that it was important for them to continue pressuring the german government to
6:05 pm
finally find an agreement on not only compensation, but also on to see exactly to find out with the commission. what happened on that day and to finally take responsibility as a state of germany and it, we hear more from victims, relatives. how did they react to the apology? there were really moved by it and we could see some of them saying that then still needs to be more done. let's remember that they even threatened to boycott. this commemorative is ceremony today in 1st and felt what were on 30 kilometers away from munich, where this abbeys, where this is tara at sac, found a terrible ending when all of the athletes were killed. so they will, several of them here. they threatened to buy, caught, if there was no agreement between the german government and the family members. and they asked israel to president ice, a catholic who is in germany to do the same. so was basically a last minute agreement found between the german government and the athletes. and they would have been a massive fiasco for
6:06 pm
a germany 50 years after this terror attack. and benjamin i do want to come back to you, but let's get a reminder of how this tragedy unfolded at the new nickel and beck's 50 years ago. munich, 1972. mm. by hosting the summer olympics, germany wanted to show the world that it was a cheerful, colorful, cosmopolitan country. ah. and that it had overcome the shadows of its nazi past. but then a shock, palestinian militants took control of the israeli athletes residence in the olympic village. they shot to his release dead and took 9 hostage, hoping to free prisoners in israel and germany. they demanded a flight to cairo with their hostages on board as well. the german authorities appeared to go along with it. helicopters took off from the olympic village and flew towards an air force base outside the city. hans fergus was a german soldier,
6:07 pm
stationed in the air bases towered that night to come and canal from from the hill, the helicopters came up from behind. if it is over that build a good boy to the rwandan that he turned around here and landed here and here and on hill, and here yolanda it circa was just working the night shift in the tower. the long no one had told him what was unfolding outside his window. claw, remove the shaw usual. i was here now and i looked down from this position until the shooting started. so and then i got down under that dollar and a rescue attempt on the airfield was a fiasco. the police lost control of the situation and the militants set off hand grenades. and as a mixed up, the east is the next day. they said that the games would continue. no one
6:08 pm
understood the record. she was still there, t rock all 9 hostages were dead. the german policeman and 5 of the militants died as well. nationally. the continuation of the games felt like a cruel joke to the relatives of the dead that he now could surely vanquish spitzer and ilana romano both lost their husbands. cindy, give them that 2 fresh and i can work. a bit of that room is a tough if his idea was a funeral service at tinney, and it was the real good. but he is 18 beth of a book on the way they are island left and right. and you said the where the athletes were training on the she made them know as if 11 members of the olympic family halls to law had not been murdered. a, it was her reflect howling beach ellen got get they on the law of me after the
6:09 pm
shocking events victims relatives fought for access to files and to compensation from german authorities, solano and every shack hussle my feelings have only gotten stronger over the years. me. she'll if someone says time meals all means i tell them your time heels, nothing much. it's as painful as if it happened yesterday. the car, it was shown information check when you use that. it's been 50 years now that it's just shocking me. all that a plaque in unix olympic village commemorates the victims of the killings. a memorial to horrors that for many have still not faded. i'm sure many of you will remember these events very clearly. i want to bring back
6:10 pm
in benjamin over as gruber from where today's ceremonies are taking place to get a bit more on this. a benjamin some of the victims families had in fact planned to boycott. today's events, can you tell us a little bit more about that? there have been several talks between the german government and family members about compensations. and what some of them said is that the amount that germany was offer was just a joke. so they had this financial aspects with something that has been repeated, not only today, but only over the past days is it's not just the financial financial thing. it's not just the compensation. there will be paid is by germany taking responsibility. and today we had several speakers here at the, at the event that already concluded we have the german president that i just mentioned. we had his rails president as well. we had but various state premier who took responsibility for what bavaria did. and that's important here because we have several actors who were involved may be also in an argument or something to understand why it took so long. and this compensations will be paid by the
6:11 pm
government by bavarian, also by the city of munich. so we had several politicians, israeli politicians, german politicians who were here in this our base, but also in the morning. it's around $9.10 where we had another commemorative event . there was at the park if the olympia park close to the village where this attack is started. early on, the 5th of september. amendment has been 50 years. why has it taken so long to get an official apology from germany? that's the question that many askin themselves and for the family members. it's also thanks to their pressure that they even made it to this point. and they pressured the government as many sand that it's for them, maybe not the last opportunity, but using this commemoration of the 50 years to pressure the government and say we really need to do something and kish bit. so the widow of one of the athletes that was kill, sat that back in the time there was
6:12 pm
a government spokesperson said that this was just something that interrupted the games. and they will, it will be forgotten in a few weeks and that they are still files that need to be disclosed shows that we still don't have all the details of what unfolded, of what led to this wrong decisions of why government officials did not react it more quickly, we know that police was poorly prepared. they tried also to stop that already in the olympic village. after that there was like a new police unit gears cannon. it's called in german, that was created after that because they were not specialized than that. but that's one event. one of them was the german government and authorities failing to protect the israel's israeli air delegation during this olympic games. there was an opportunity for germany to present itself after the past olympic games in 9036 where the nazis wanted to portray themselves during a there, there, lympics and berlin. it was an opportunity for germany to show itself that there welcoming m. israel's delegation. did this was 72, so only
6:13 pm
a 2022 years after the 2nd world war and after the holocaust. so it was pretty strong back then and all the failures that led to it as well. so something the both president said alton a statement yesterday, as i said, catholic is in berlin here for a few days now is this will not heal all wounds, but it's opening doors to continue working. continue to find out what happened on the day to give a little bit more off the piece to the family members entering of escrow. i thank you so much for that. well, after a bitter contest, lizard cross has been elected leader of britain's conservative party and will become the you case. next prime minister. the announcement that trust will be taking over follows 2 months of campaigning, sports by the resignation of prime minister boris johnson. the british economy is set to be the new prime minister's most pressing task with the u. k, facing a cost of living crisis, and spiraling energy charges. getting an update from our correspond in london in
6:14 pm
just a moment. but 1st, let's take a closer look at the woman set to become britons new liter. let's try to 47 year old won a conservative seat in the british parliament in 2010 on her 3rd attempt since september 2021. she's been the u. k. foreign minister in the british government, although not without trouble humiliated in moscow by her russian counterpart, sir. gay, love rove, who said it was like talking to a deaf person. she campaigned for britain to remain in 2016. but since the vote to leave became a hard liner on breaks it during this leadership campaign, she insulted the 1st minister of scotland and the french president. but trust rejects accusations that she's modeled her style. a former british prime minister, margaret thatcher, austin, before 1996, she was a prominent youth member of another british political party. we liberal democrat believe in opportunity for all she switched though to the conservative party while
6:15 pm
still at university on the ongoing cost of living crisis cross promises tax cuts unloaded, cisco that will be no highlighted portage. all prime in is barbara hazel is our correspondent in london. barbara trust, i certainly had a huge list of challenges ahead and what are the biggest issues she's going to be facing their calling. it's here in omni crisis because pretty much the whole economy is touched by. what's happening here in britain. it's a rampant inflation. it's an exploding gas price crisis. the energy of the public health services is close to finally break down their strikes already under way of for our med train drivers and more strikes in public service from as their public servants demanding higher salaries because of the inflation. that's already hit 10 percent are threatened. this is going to be the big winter of discontent. the worst
6:16 pm
that britain as seen in decades and less trust really has her hands full and a mouth to climb this. she wants to sort of get her over even the worst aspects off this omni crisis. so trust taking off as at a very difficult time as she said, how she is going to deal with these problems as she didn't really say very much during and during that campaign that you referred to as she only talked about tech scouts, she says she doesn't believe in handouts, she doesn't want to give money to people. everybody is responsible for him and herself that sir, classic tory conservative ideology at. but she wants to cup taxes, it generates growth and a sort of try to grow the country out of this crisis. not this is a notion that many economists, hearsay is, is quite nonsensical. they fear that this is rather going to heat up inflation further plus tax care at their tech scouts of course. and they are good for richer
6:17 pm
and, and a medium, a medium and we're better owning a population. but they do absolutely nothing for the 1000000. so as scraping along on minimum wage here in britain as they really do need help heating or eating that . so what british papers are asking at the moment, and many people say, if if push comes to shove, probably we're not going to do either neither heat or how does not have enough food to eat. and so she really has a tremendous task and we don't know exactly what, how she wants to deal with and what she wants to do. and another big issue for the new prime minister, it will be i, it's neighbors in europe, relations between the u. k. and brussels have been tense to think that is going to change under las trust it, sir, if we're unlucky, it's going to change it to the worst because something that lists tribes has on her her inbox and on her list to do during the 1st weeks in office is she wants to
6:18 pm
strike down the northern ireland protocol for the part of the, of the breakfast contract. that would mean that brussels would really sort of finally get angry was britain and sue the country probably. and maybe even enter into a full grown trade war. now many people of course here are asking is this the point of time what you really want to annoy your closest neighbors and get into those fights and battles? was them about to trade in about the northern irish protocol and it, but this is also part of her ideology. she has promised it to the tory party during, at, during that campaign that she is the most ardent breakfast tear even harder than forest johnson. and she wants to go through with the body. as i said, we don't really know what she will do in practice as the, the campaigning is over. she is now voted into office, and she may as well be that have to be much more pragmatic than she has foreseen
6:19 pm
