Fugitive rabbi nabbed in South Africa

A fugitive rabbi wanted for sex offenses in Israel has been arrested in South Africa.

South African police raided Rabbi Eliezer Berland’s hotel room in January, but he escaped arrest.

The rabbi’s attorney says “we will continue to fight for his innocence now as well,” Walla news reports.
