Attiya Waives Participation in Police Delegation to US

Commander Roni Attiya of the Israel Police's Northern District informed Police Commissioner Yochanan Danino, Thursday, that he was waiving his participation as head of a police delegation to the United States.

Attiya explained that his decision was due to opposition expressed by families of the 44 people who died in the 2010 Carmel Ridge Fire in the Haifa area. The relatives have blamed his actions for having a role in the deaths.
