Jordan Arrests Suspect in 1982 Paris Jewish Attack

Jordanian authorities have arrested a suspected member of a Palestinian guerrilla unit behind an attack on a Jewish restaurant in France in 1982 that killed six people, an official at the Paris prosecutor's office said on Wednesday. A French magistrate issued international arrest warrants for three men living in Oslo, Ramallah and Jordan in March, suspected of carrying out the attack that also wounded 22. The suspects were identified 32 years after the attacks thanks to statements from other former members of the Abu Nidal group using a French judicial process that maintained their anonymity.
