GSG-9

Grenzschuttzgruppe 9 (Border protection group 9) is the German counter-terrorism unit. The unit forms part of the police, and has normal police authority.

The unit was established in 1972 under the leadership of general Ulrich K Wegener[?], after the police failed miserably in dealing with the "Munich massacre" - a terrorist action carried out by the Black September movement during the 1972 Summer Olympic Games.
