The funeral for the four victims of Friday's terror rampage at a Paris supermarket will be held at 12:00 pm Tuesday, after an early-morning burial at Jerusalem's Har Hamenuchot cemetery. 

ZAKA International volunteers transferred the bodies of Philippe Braham, 40; Yohan Cohen, 22; Yoav Hattab, 21; and Francois-Michel Saada, in his 60s, to Israel from Paris Monday in preparation for the funeral. 

Among the participants at the ceremony will be President Reuven Rivlin, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Labor leader Yitzhak Herzog, ministers, MKs, rabbis, and other dignitaries. 

France's Environmental Affairs and Energy Minister, Segolene Royal, is also expected to attend.

Netanyahu specifically ordered the heads of the government ministries to expedite any preparations for the ceremony; Culture and Sport Minister Limor Livnat had been given the task of ensuring that the funerals take place without interference.
