France in second bid to Norway for 1982 bomber of Jewish restaurant

Norway previously refused to surrender to France a suspect in the fatal attack on a Jewish restaurant in Paris 36 years ago, killing six people and wounding at least 20.

Norway refused to hand over a citizen, but recently adopted new pan-European regulations on arrests, leading French prosecutors to seek extradition for a second time.
