Planner of Munich Olympics attack dies
Saturday 03 July 2010
Mohammed Oudeh, the key planner of the 1972 Munich Olympics attack that killed 11 Israeli athletes, has died in Damascus. He was 73.
His daughter, Hana Oudeh, said her father died of kidney failure. She said he was taken to Damascus' Andalus hospital after falling sick, and died today.
Mohammed Oudeh, also known as Abu Daoud, did not take part in the attack on September 5 1972.
He was a leader of Black September, an offshoot of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's Fatah group that was established to avenge the 1970 expulsion of Palestinian guerrillas from Jordan.
Hana Oudeh said her father will be buried later today in Damascus' Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp.
He is survived by five daughters and a son.
