Jerusalem (JTA) — A 70-
year-old Holocaust survivor
hurled acid into the face of
Yoram Sheftel, chief defense
counsel for convicted war
criminal John Demjanjuk,
during the funeral last week
for Dov Eitan, a member of
the Demjanjuk defense team.

Sheftel was rushed to a
hospital, where doctors
treated damage to one eye. A
hospital spokesman said his
exact condition would not be
known for several days.
A woman with him was also
treated for slight injuries.
Israel Radio identified her as
author Edna Shabtai.
Police immediately arrested
the Holocaust survivor, Yis-
rael Yehekeli. According to
police spokesman Rafi Levy,
he is a Jerusalem resident
and survivor of the Treblinka
death camp.
Yehekeli was said to be in
good spirits and in no way
remorseful over his act.
Demjanjuk, 68, a Ukran-
ian-born former American
citizen, was found guilty of
crimes against humanity,
crimes against a persecuted
people, war crimes and crimes
against the Jewish people.
Yehekeli reportedly was a
frequent spectator at the
trial.

U.S. Challenges
Soviet Emigres

New York (JTA) —
American immigration of-
ficials are challenging the
refugee status of Soviet
Jewish emigres, according to
the Hebrew Immigrant Aid
Society.
According to various Jewish
organizations, the challenges
are occurring in Rome, usual-
ly the next-to-last stop for
Soviet Jews intent on coming
to the United States. There,
179 Soviet Jews have been
denied refugee visas since
September, according to
HIAS.
In addition, more than 300
"delayniks" are said to be in
limbo in Rome, awaiting a
decision by officials of the U.S.
Immigration and Natural-
ization Service that was once
automatic for Soviet Jews.
From January through Nov.
29, 12,794 other Soviet Jews
were processed by HIAS of-
ficials in Rome.
Soviet Jewry activists,
American Jewish resettle-
ment agencies and Soviet
Jews themselves are claiming
the new policy contradicts the
reality of Jewish life in the
Soviet Union.
