    Killers of Greek monk captured
Killers of Greek monk captured The Shin Bet security service and a special unit of the Jerusalem police managed Wednesday to track down the killers of Georgios Tsibukakis, the Greek monk who was shot dead while driving along the Jerusalem-Ma'ale Adumim road last week.

The two alledged killers were members of Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat's Force 17. According to them, they had approached Tanzim head Marwan Barghouti and had asked him for weapons to carry out attacks against Israel. Barghouti in turn referred them to a different person, who sold them the weapons. Both men are residents of East Jerusalem.
