A French military plane carrying the bodies of the four victims, Rabbi Yonatan Sandler, his two children Aryeh, six, and Gavriel, three; and eight-year-old Miriam Monsonego, arrived in Israel early Wednesday morning. French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe accompanied the bodies and was expected to attend the funerals.
