Zaka Prepares Paris Victims for Burial

In the wake of the tragic terror attack Friday at the kosher supermarket in Paris in which four French Jews were murdered, the ZAKA Rescue and Recovery organization sent a team of volunteers from Israel to lead the efforts to clear the terror scene in accordance with Jewish law.

On Monday the ZAKA volunteers were working with the local burial society to treat the bodies of the victims and prepare them to fly to Israel for burial.  The ZAKA volunteers also worked at the scene of the terror attack at the Charlie Hebdo offices where, it has been discovered, there were three Jews among the victims.

The ZAKA International Rescue Unit was recognized in 2005 by the United Nations as an international humanitarian volunteer organization.
