Attack on Chabad Emissaries Thwarted


It was revealed, this week, that the security forces of Azerbaijan arrested three Azerbi citizens on suspicion of planning to attack Rabbi Shneor Segal of the Chabad Lubavitch hasidic movement and Rabbi Mati Lewis, principal of the Or Avner school in Baku. The national security office said the three were sent by Iran in revenge for the recent deaths of Iranian nuclear scientists.

During the investigation of the suspects, pictures were found of Rabbi Segal's house and of the school. Authorities warned the emissaries and during the weekend, the rabbis were accompanied by security guards out of concern for additional terrorists.
