More than 700 people gathered to remember a teenager who died of his wounds nearly a month after a suicide bombing in Israel. The body of Daniel Wultz, 16, arrived in Florida early Tuesday, a day after a memorial ceremony in Jerusalem, where his family said he always hoped to live. Wultz had been visiting relatives in Israel on Passover. He was having lunch with his father at a Tel Aviv restaurant April 17 when a Palestinian suicide bomber detonated about 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms) of explosives in the entrance. Eleven other people were killed in the attack, including the suicide bomber. Wultz's father, Tuly, survived. During the memorial service in Florida, people packed into the Chabad Lubavitch synagogue, while others stood outside in the rain wiping away tears as speakers broadcast the eulogies from inside the temple.
