Bodies of 6 IDF soldiers still in Romania

The IDF Rabbinate was working feverishly Thursday night to complete the identification of the six bodies of the IDF soldier killed in the helicopter crash in Romania earlier in the week. The plane that was supposed to have carried the bodies of the fallen soldiers back to Israel for burial has been delayed until the identification work is completed and is expected to arrive in Israel on Friday.
"The identification crews have not slept in hours, but they will not rest or stop until this halachic process of all the bodies is final and it possible to bring them to Israel for burial," said chief army rabbi, Brig. Gen. Rafi Peretz.
