PARIS – More than 32 years after a deadly terror attack in Paris' old Jewish quarter, French authorities have identified three suspects and are seeking their arrest.
On Aug. 9, 1982, grenade-throwing Palestinians burst into the Jo Goldenberg deli and sprayed machine-gun fire, killing six people — including two Americans. The restaurant, which has since closed, was a centerpiece tourist attraction in the famed Marais neighborhood.
Paris prosecutor's office spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre (Ahn-YES Tee-BOH Luh-KWEE-Vruh) says international arrest warrants have been issued for the three suspects — now aged in their late 50s and early 60s — who were believed to be members of the Abu Nidal group.
She says they are believed to be in the Palestinian territories, Jordan and Norway but declined to identify them by name, citing protocol.
