JERUSALEM – The bodies of four French Jews killed in a hostage standoff in a Paris grocery store will be buried in Israel, Israel's prime minister said Sunday.

In a statement issued from Paris, Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday he had "acceded to the request of the families of the victims of the murderous terror attack" and directed "all the relevant government bodies" to assist in bringing the bodies to Israel. A funeral is tentatively set for Tuesday.
