JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel's prime minister says his country is on alert for plots to kill more Israelis overseas.
Last week's deadly attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria came just before this week's opening of the London Olympics. It has fueled speculation that Israeli athletes might be targeted next.
Benjamin Netanyahu told CBS TV's Face the Nation program on Sunday, "We are vigilant about the possibility that they (Iran and its agents) would attack elsewhere, but I can't give specific details. ... I'm not confirming any information that we have on the Olympics."
Israel blames Iran and its proxies for the Bulgaria bombing and other plots against Israelis and Jews overseas over the past two years.
In 1972, 11 Israeli athletes were killed after they were abducted by Palestinians at the Munich Olympics.
