Israel Fears Olympic Threat

After a suicide bomber killed five Israeli tourists and a local driver on a bus in Bulgaria last week, a man suspected of being involved could be going to London—and his next target could be the Olympics. Israel blames the attack on Iran-backed militant group Hezbollah and now many fear the suspect is planning to attack Israeli athletes competing in the Olympic games. The Israeli and British governments are working together to ramp up protection of the country's delegation in case of a repeat attempt of the 1972 Olympics, where 11 athletes and coaches were killed. The man is traveling with a U.S. passport under the name of David Jefferson.
