The Supreme Court orders that the court-ordered return to Italy of a boy whose parents died in an Italian cable car crash be delayed.

The justices rule that 6-year-old Eitan Biran will remain in Israel until at least November 23.

The ruling comes after his maternal grandparents filed an appeal with the Supreme Court against the lower court order to return him to other relatives in Italy.
