BOSTON (AP) - Gov. Charlie Baker says he had a “father to father” conversation with the father of 18-year-old Ezra Schwartz, a Massachusetts teen killed in an attack in Israel.

Schwartz, who was from Sharon and graduated this year from the Maimonides School, was one of three people killed last Thursday by a Palestinian motorist who intentionally rammed his vehicle into a group of pedestrians in a West Bank area south of Jerusalem.

Baker said he has friends who have put their children through the same cultural exchange program.

He said when parents send their children off to experience that kind of opportunity they shouldn’t have to worry about their safety. Baker said he feels terrible for the family and for all those who support cultural exchange programs and the opportunities they provide.
