Seven terrorists were involved in last week’s murder of Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze’evi, according to details released Wednesday after a gag order on the case was partially lifted. At least two of the seven were captured by Israeli security forces on the night of the slaying, and one was killed during an Israeli military operation Wednesday in the West Bank village of Beit Re’ema, according to Israel Radio. The remaining terrorists are hiding in a church in Bethlehem, Israeli officials charge.
