The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Koby Mandell Act, creating an office dedicating to capturing terrorists who harm Americans overseas. The bill, named for an American-Israeli teenager killed by Palestinian terrorists, was passed as part of the Department of Justice Authorization Act by voice vote Tuesday. But the bill was amended to remove language specifically noting problems with attacks on American citizens in areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority.
