The FBI will investigate Tuesday’s Jerusalem synagogue attack because three of the victims were U.S. citizens, a U.S. law enforcement official said.
Three of the men killed in the attack were dual Israeli-U.S. citizens, and the fourth was a dual British-Israeli citizen, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.
Two knife- and ax-wielding Palestinian men broke into a Jerusalem synagogue Tuesday morning and killed four Israeli worshipers, Israeli police said.
Police responded and shot and killed the attackers, spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told CNN. Authorities said the men, who also had a handgun, were cousins who came from East Jerusalem.
