Rabin's Assassin Denied Prayer Request

Yigal Amir, murderer of former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, requested he be allowed to pray with other prisoners. Amir is held in solitary confinement but is allowed to meet with a different prisoner three times a week to study Torah. While the court denied his request, it also ordered prison officials to "make an extra effort in locating a place that would allow Amir to pray with other inmates subject to the security restrictions."
