Bodies arrive in Israel

The bodies of four French Jews killed in a jihadist attack on a kosher supermarket in Paris arrived in Israel early Tuesday ahead of a funeral in Jerusalem.

The four will be laid to rest in the Givat Shaul cemetery in Jerusalem at noon.

Yoav Hattab, Philippe Braham, Yohan Cohen and Francois-Michel Saada were among 17 people gunned down in Paris during three days of bloodshed that shook France to the core and sent shock waves through its Jewish community, the third largest in the world.

Cohen, 22, was an employee of the HyperCacher store; Yoav Hattab, 21, was a student of Tunisian origin and the son of the chief rabbi of Tunis; Phillipe Barham, 45, was an executive at an IT company, a father of four and the brother of a rabbi; and François-Michel Saada, 64, was a retired father of two.
