Jewish Activist Jailed for Role in Bomb Plot Killed in Prison
Items Compiled From Tribune News Services


http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-0511060046nov06,1,6639794.story

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- A Jewish Defense League activist imprisoned for his role in a 2001 plot to bomb a California mosque and the office of a Lebanese-American congressman was killed at a federal prison in Phoenix, an FBI spokesman said Saturday.

Earl Krugel, 62, was killed in an assault Friday evening at the Federal Correctional Institution, the spokesman said. He would not release details.

Krugel's wife, Lola, said FBI investigators told her an inmate had struck her husband on the head from behind with a concrete block.

Krugel, a former dental assistant from Reseda, and late JDL leader Irv Rubin were arrested in 2001 and charged with conspiring to bomb the King Fahd Mosque in Culver City and a field office of Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, who is Lebanese-American.

Krugel pleaded guilty in 2003. He was sentenced in September to 20 years in prison.
