Larissa Trimbobler, wife of assassinated prime minister Yitzhak Rabin's murderer, Yigal Amir, gave birth to a baby boy at Bikur Holim Hospital in Jerusalem on Sunday afternoon. The baby's brit mila (circumcision) will take place on November 4, exactly 12 years since his father killed Rabin. The child was in good health, said Shimon Malka, a spokesman for Bikur Holim hospital in Jerusalem, where the baby was delivered. Police took heightened security precautions at the time of the delivery with security forces stationed around Trimbobler's hospital room under the suspicion that the baby could be attacked. Last week the Prisons Service rejected a request by Amir to attend the brit of his son. The Prisons Service also rejected his request to hold the brit in the prison. The Prisons Service cited concerns that Amir might contact far-right activists or that someone might try to kill him as the reasons for rejecting the request.
