Ministerial c'tee recognizes Israelis murdered in Mumbai as terror victims

The Ministerial Committee on Symbols and Ceremonies, headed by Absorption Minister Yaakov Edri, decided Sunday to recognize the Israelis murdered in the Mumbai massacre as victims of terror attacks against an Israeli target, a move that will grant their families National Insurance Institute (NII) benefits. The Jewish Agency also decided to donate money to the families from a special fund which supports victims of terror attacks.
