French Nationals to Stand Trial for Tel Aviv Hit-and-Run

Two Frenchmen allegedly involved in the hit-and-run death of an Israeli woman in Tel Aviv will stand trial in Paris on November 27, judicial sources told AFP Tuesday. Pilates instructor Lee Zeitouni, 25, was hit by a speeding BMW on a city street in September 2011 and left to die when the drivers failed to stop.

If convicted, Claude Khayat and Eric Robic, the suspects in the hit-and-run case, could face up to ten years in prison.
