Israeli body parts experts head to Alps

30 March 2015, 08:08

Tel Aviv -

The eight-member team from the group Zaka is expected to arrive either late on Sunday or early on Monday, according to the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Zaka was founded by religious Jews in 1995 in response to deadly terrorist attacks that often left body parts strewn over wide areas. Jewish religious law requires the recovery of as many body parts as possible so that a person's entire body can be buried.

Although the team will help with the overall search, a key focus is tracking down the remains of an Israeli passenger who was on Germanwings flight 4U9525 when it crashed on its way from Barcelona, Spain to Düsseldorf, Germany.

Lufthansa is paying for the Zaka team's travel costs at the request of the victim's family.
