An Israeli court charged four Palestinians in the assassination of Israeli Cabinet minister Rehavam Ze’evi. Israel snatched the men, who belong to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, from a Jericho prison in March after the newly elected Hamas government said it would release them. Palestinians detained the men under international pressure soon after Ze’evi, an Israeli Cabinet minister who advocated transferring Arabs from Israel and the West Bank, was killed in 2001, but they were never tried.
