Since being convicted by Israel for a Jerusalem supermarket bombing that left two students dead, Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh has been living in the United States. That is coming to an end.

Rasmea Odeh, 69, will be deported to Jordan or another country in the months ahead...

Odeh was convicted at trial in 2014 and sentenced to 18 months in prison, but the verdict was overturned. A second trial was planned in Detroit, the city where she went through the citizenship process in 2004, before she decided to accept a plea deal...

In 1970, Odeh was convicted of two bombings in Israel, including one that killed two young men at a supermarket in Jerusalem. She insists she was tortured into confessing. She was sentenced to life in prison but was released in 1979 as part of a prisoner swap with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine...
