An Israel Air Force jet took off for India on Sunday with a team who will assist in the transfer back to Israel of those killed at the Chabad-Lubavitch center in Mumbai.

The funerals for Chabad House directors Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg would likely not take place before Tuesday morning, officials said.

The delegation onboard was comprised of contingents from the Israeli Foreign Ministry, the Israel Defense Force, and the Israel Police.
