A Belgian Jewish couple reportedly lost their 11-month-old son in this week’s tsunami. According to Ma’ariv, Matan Nassima’s body was found Tuesday near the Thai resort where his family was vacationing. Matan’s parents, Steven and Silvie, had posted a picture of the boy on the newspaper’s Web site after he was swept away during Sunday’s tsunami, in hope that Israeli tourists might recognize him.
