Israeli Athletes on Alert as Olympics Begin

In the wake of the deadly attack last week on Israelis in Bulgaria, Olympic officials are raising the terrorism assessment for the games. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the 1972 Munich Olympics in which 11 Israeli athletes were killed in a terrorist attack.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

• Israel anxious over Syrian threat to use chemical weapons if attacked.
• Russia threatening to drop its support of Assad regime in Syria.
