A U.S. lawmaker is seeking the extradition of two Palestinians accused of murdering an American citizen. Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) sent a letter to Attorney General John Ashcroft, asking him to seek the extradition of Ibrahim Abayat and Jihad Youssef Khalif Ja’ara to face trial for the murder of Avi Boaz, a 72-year-old American from Brooklyn who was killed last year in Beit Jalla.
