Gunfire in SAS ‘raid’ at 2012 Olympic Village | The Sun |News THE SAS and anti-terror cops fired off live ammo at the London Olympics Village - in a dry-run at combating a Munich-style attack on athletes. The full-scale dress rehearsal - named Operation Wooden Pride - was staged over three days at the accommodation complex. Security chiefs admit that next year's spectacular will be a top target for terrorists. At the 1972 Munich Games, 11 Israeli athletes and coaches were murdered after Middle-Eastern terrorists took hostages in the competitors' quarters. A British Intelligence source said the exercise "ran through the methods of dealing with an attack by terrorist gunmen intent on taking hostages". It also ensured the military and police command structures would work efficiently, and gave the elite soldiers and police officers who might be involved a chance to get to know the village lay-out. The source added: "To add to a sense of reality, live rounds were fired." Police confirmed the exercise was "part of our preparations for the Games". The MoD declined to comment.
