French police issue arrest warrants in 1982 Jewish deli attack

(JNS.org) French police have identified three suspects in a terror attack on a Jewish deli in Paris that occurred 32 years ago. In August 1982, three Palestinians entered the well-known Jo Goldenberg deli, which had been a major tourist attraction in the Jewish quarter of the city, proceeding to throw grenades and fire machine guns. The terrorists killed six people, including two Americans, and injured 21 others. Paris prosecutor’s office spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre said last week that authorities issued international arrest warrants for three suspects, now in their 50s and 60s and most likely residing in the disputed Palestinian territories, Jordan, and Norway.
