The Lod airport massacre

Note that some people might find today's programme upsetting.

It is 40 years since Japanese gunmen attacked the Lod airport in Tel Aviv, Israel. They were left-wing militants working for a Palestinian organisation.

Twenty-six people were killed that day and more than 70 others were injured.

Witness hears from Ros Sloboda, one of the survivors of the shooting.
