TEL AVIV (Apr. 2)
An armed Jordanian soldier who infiltrated into Israel was captured by an Israel Defense Force patrol near Jericho early Monday, after an all-night search.
The man, wearing a Jordanian army uniform, was found cowering in a banana grove at dawn. He carried an M-16 rifle and extra magazines but surrendered without a struggle.
Signs that a border intrusion occurred were discovered Sunday. Settlements in the area were put on an alert that lasted 20 hours.
