A cab driver’s killing of a 16-year-old Yeshiva student in 1994 “was one of the early cases of terrorism in New York City,” the victim’s mother said this week, but it has never been determined who else might have been involved.
Rashid Baz is serving a 141-year prison sentence for shooting into a van carrying Yeshiva students on the Brooklyn Bridge. The case initially was cast as an act of road rage, but the New York Post reported Monday that Baz told investigators in 2007 that he deliberated targeted the van.
“I only shot them because they were Jewish,” he said.
