A Beduin border policeman died in a Jerusalem hospital yesterday of wounds he suffered in a surprise attack by terrorists in Batir village on Saturday. The victim was Mohammed Zbeidat, 25, a member of a Bedouin tribe living near Nazareth. He was a member of a police patrol ambushed by grenade throwing terrorists who escaped in the dark. All members of the patrol were wounded.
