Rishon Le-zion Killer to Stand Trial

Download PDF for this date

Murder charges were brought Monday before the Tel Aviv District Court against Ami Popper, the confessed killer of seven Palestinian workers in a hiring field near Rishon le-Zion on May 20.

The charges followed a ruling by psychiatrists that Popper is capable of standing trial for his actions.

The trial was due to begin Tuesday.
