Brazil Extradites Israeli Convicted In 2004 Killing Of Palestinian


An Israeli citizen who fled the country after being convicted in the killing of a Palestinian taxi driver in 2004 was extradited from Brazil on Wednesday.

Yehoshua Elitzur, whose 2014 arrest in Sao Paulo ended a decade-long manhunt, will appear in court for a remand hearing upon landing

Elitzur, originally a German national who converted to Judaism, was found guilty of manslaughter in the fatal shooting of Sael Jabara al-Shatiya in September 2004  and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Elitzur claimed that he had acted in self-defense. Read more at Times of Israel.
