Arrest in Gaza slayings

Israeli forces arrested a Palestinian accused of being involved in the killing of a Gaza settler and her four daughters.

The Shin Bet announced Monday that during a raid on the Gaza Strip last month, Israeli troops captured an Islamic Jihad terrorist. Under interrogation he confessed to involvement in a May 2004 gun ambush on a car driven by Tali Hatuel, a resident of the now-defunct Gush Katif settlement bloc. She and her four daughters were killed.
