In this special segment we will touch a bit on the recent anniversaries of two attacks which shook the global perspective on international terrorism. Before 9/11, there was 9/5 or September 5, 1972, the day when the so called Munich Massacre took place. For many, it is regarded as the 9/11 of the Cold War Era.
