Jerusalem - Israel's prime minister says his country is on alert for plots to kill more Israelis overseas.

Last week's deadly attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria came just before this week's opening of the London Olympics. It has fuelled speculation that Israeli athletes might be targeted next.

In 1972, 11 Israeli athletes were killed after they were abducted by Palestinians at the Munich Olympics.
