Amman (Jordan): Amin al-Hindi, a
Palestinian who is believed to have been involved in the
Munich attack on Israel`s Olympic team in 1972 and who helped
found the Palestinian security services, has died.

He was 70.

Ata Khairy, the Palestinian envoy to Jordan, says
al-Hindi died of cancer of the liver and pancreas in a
Jordanian hospital yesterday.
Khairy says al-Hindi slipped into a coma after he
underwent surgery in Jordan last week.

He said al-Hindi`s body was transported overland today
to the West Bank en route to the Gaza Strip, where he will be
buried.
Al-Hindi, a Gazan, headed the Palestinian General
Intelligence Service under the late Palestinian president
Yasser Arafat. He also served as a senior security officer in
the Palestine Liberation Organisation`s ruling Fatah party in
the 1970s.
