Israel reopened a main street in Hebron on Thursday that had been sealed since a Jewish settler killed 29 Muslim worshipers in the West Bank town five years ago. Restrictions on Palestinian traffic on Shuhada Street were eased in 1997, but the street, which runs through Israeli-controlled parts of the town connecting Jewish enclaves, was resealed following a series of terrorist attacks and clashes.
