Executing multiple statements upon delete trigger

Upon the deletion of a row I want to execute multiple SQL statements to delete content from other tables, but I keep getting an SQL syntax error. Due to the nature of my application I cannot state the table or column names but I have modified them. My query to create the trigger is:

CREATE TRIGGER myTrigger BEFORE DELETE ON table1
FOR EACH ROW
BEGIN
DELETE FROM table2 WHERE table1ID= OLD.table1ID;
DELETE FROM table3 WHERE table1ID= OLD.table1ID;
DELETE FROM table4 WHERE table1ID= OLD.table1ID;
END

For the purposes of the code above, lets say that table1ID is a foreign key for table2, table3 and table4.

What is wrong with the above syntax? Am I missing something very obvious?
