An Albanian man was arrested in connection with the beating death of a 22-year-old Israeli man on his way to the Chabad-run Pesach Seder in Berlin earlier this week, German police announced Friday.
From The Jerusalem Post:
A 28-year-old German national of Albanian descent was arrested Friday in connection with the murder of an Israeli citizen in Berlin, German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel reported on Friday.
Czech authorities arrested the suspect on Friday near the border with Germany and will proceed with extradition protocols.
According to investigators, the suspect met the Israeli, Yosef Damari, aged 22, in a Berlin hostel last week and is believed to have murdered him the following day.
The Chabad rabbi in Berlin, Yehuda Teichtal, said the man to whom the passport belonged was supposed to celebrate the Passover Seder at the local Chabad house on Friday night but never arrived.
