Peter Malkin, the Israeli spy who was best known for capturing Adolf Eichmann in Argentina, died last week in New York. He was buried on Friday. This is a
BBC story on him, and the obituaries from the London Times and the Telegraph.
Malkins memoir of how he and his Mossad team picked up Eichmanns trail in Buenos Aires, infiltrated Argentina, snatched Eichmann (Malkin himself did the takedown, as he was a black belt in judo), and then spirited Eichmann out of the country to face justice in Israel has been adapted into an excellent film w/ Robert Duvall as Eichmann and Arliss Howard as Malkin. Recommended.
