TEL AVIV, Israel, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- An Israeli court ruled Yigal Amir, serving a life sentence for the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, should be allowed to meet with another prisoner for prayer.

Petah Tikva District Court, which ruled earlier this year that Amir should be allowed to study the Torah with another prisoner every two weeks, said the prisoner may meet with another man for prayer three times a week, Ynetnews.com reported Monday.

The court denied a request to allow Amir, who has been in solitary confinement for 15 years, to get out of confinement during the Jewish High Holidays. Amir's attorney, however, said he was pleased Amir will be able to pray with another prisoner three times a week and hoped it would lead to a group study session.
