Court allows Amir to attend son's brit in prison

The High Court of Justice on Friday rejected several appeals against a decision by the Tel Aviv District Court to allow Yigal Amir, the assassin of former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, to attend his son's brit mila (circumcision ceremony) at Ayalon Prison on Sunday. The Israel Prison Service (IPS) said that Amir would be allowed to attend the brit with family members but that it would be "void of any other ceremonial or celebratory signs."
