Jordan Rejects 1982 Paris Attack Suspects Extradition (AFP)
Jordan has rejected an extradition request from France for two suspects accused of carrying out a 1982 deadly attack on the Chez Jo Goldenberg Jewish restaurant in Paris which killed six people and wounded 22 others, a judicial source said Wednesday.
The alleged mastermind of the attack, Zuhair Mohamad al-Abassi, 62, was arrested in Jordan last year. Jordan has also refused to hand over Nizar Tawfiq Hamada, 54.
Another suspect, Mahmoud Khader Abed Adra, lives in Ramallah in the West Bank, while suspect Walid Abdulrahman Abu Zayed is a resident of Norway.
