New York (AP) Israeli officials say the 2-year-old orphan of a couple killed at the Mumbai Jewish center they ran is flying to Israel today.

An Israeli Air Force jet will carry Moshe Holtzberg, along with his parents' remains and the Indian nanny who rescued him during last week's attacks. The nanny, who had worked at the center for years, found Moshe crying beside his gunned-down parents' bodies. His pants were drenched in blood.

Israeli officials say she plans to live with Moshe in Israel “so at least he has someone he knows and recognizes and loves.”

Moshe has an older brother in Israel, but he's permanently hospitalized with a genetic disorder.
