Serial stabbing suspect sues to be sent to Israel
A man serving a life sentence for murder in a series of stabbings in Michigan is suing to try to be sent to Israel, his native country. In a handwritten lawsuit against the US government, Elias Abuelazam said he committed attempted murder in Latrun, Israel, in 2009, months before he arrived in Flint, Michigan, in 2010.

 

"I have written letters to the Israeli authorities asking them to prepare the necessary warrants and extradition documents to bring me back to Israel where I will stand trial and be sent to prison," Abuelazam said in a lawsuit filed Aug. 1 in a federal court.
