French Jewish Community Protest Auto Death

Leaders of the French Jewish community sent a strongly worded letter to French President Nicolas Sarkozy in regards to the killing of Lee Zeituni. Zeituni, a young Israeli, was run over in Tel Aviv in September by Claude Isaac and Eric Rubik, two French tourists. The two are accused of fleeing the scene and then fleeing the country back to France. Members of Knesset and members of the French Jewish community have called for a trial in France or alternatively for them to be extradited to Israel to stand trial.
