JERUSALEM, Israel - Canadian police arrested a man suspected of planting a bomb outside a Paris synagogue in 1980.
According to a report posted on the Web site of L'Express, a French magazine, an international arrest warrant issued by two French judges earlier this month led Canadian officials to arrest Hassan Diab in the town of Gatineau in Quebec.
The warrant accuses Diab of manufacturing and planting a bomb, which killed three French citizens, an Israeli woman and wounded 20 others as they left the synagogue following erev Shabbat (Friday evening Sabbath) services in an upscale Paris neighborhood.
Diab, now a sociology professor at a university in Ottawa, holds dual Lebanese and Canadian citizenship.
According to L'Express, French investigators believe the attack was organized by a small Palestinian terror group, which declined to claim responsibility for the bombing.
