More than 38 years after a deadly attack on a restaurant in the Jewish quarter of Paris, one of the four identified suspects, Abou Zayed, has arrived in Paris, extradited by Norway. This could pave the way for a trial in one of the oldest terrorism cases in France. Six people were killed and 22 injured when between three and five men opened fire and threw grenades into Jo Goldenberg's restaurant, "Pletzl" on August 9 1982. The restaurant has since been replaced by a shop selling clothes in fluorescent colours, reflecting the transformation of the neighbourhood into a tourist mecca. As for the witnesses of the bloody attack, they are dead, have left the neighbourhood, or prefer to remain out of the spotlight.
