Iran to Allow Athletes to Compete Against Israelis

Iran chef de mission Bahram Afsharzadeh said on Monday that his country's athletes will compete against Israelis at the London Olympics.

“We will be truthful to sport,” Afsharzadeh said, adding that Iran would also “respect” a minute of silence if it was held in the opening ceremony to remember the 11 Israelis murdered at the 1972 Munich Olympics.
