Terrorism suspected in settler killing

A West Bank settler was murdered in what police suspect was a terrorist attack. The body of a 42-year-old Bat Ayin man, who had been stabbed repeatedly, was discovered Sunday night near a neighboring Palestinian village. Israeli police said Monday that the killers likely were Palestinian terrorists, though there has been no claim of responsibility. The possibility of a criminal motive also is being checked.
