The Israeli friend of a leading Palestinian terrorist denied complicity in a Jerusalem-area bombing. Tali Fahima denied the charges Monday in court, where she was remanded for seven days as the investigation proceeds. Fahima, 28, was arrested after the Aug. 11 blast at Kalandia checkpoint that killed two Palestinians and wounded three Israeli border policemen, apparently a botched attempt to smuggle a bomb into Israel. Security sources said Tuesday that Fahima was believed to have helped her friend Zakaria Zubeidi, an Al-Aksa Brigade chief who claimed responsibility for the incident.
