JTA: Leo Frank lynching marked

Jews in Atlanta marked the 90th anniversary of the lynching of a Jewish man.

Commemorations Wednesday marked the date when Leo Frank was lynched by a mob after being wrongly convicted of killing a teenage girl in a pencil factory.

Frank was posthumously pardoned in 1986 on the grounds that the state failed to adequately protect him while he was in custody. The lynching led to the formation of the Anti-Defamation League.
