Settler family slain in beds
FIVE members of an Israeli family including a baby were murdered in their beds in a West Bank settlement in an attack blamed on Palestinians, sparking a huge manhunt and international condemnation on Saturday. Media reports said a baby girl of three months, two children aged three and 11, and their parents Ehud and Ruth Vogel were all stabbed to death in the Friday night attack in Itamar near the Palestinian town of Nablus. Army radio said two other children had been spared and a third, a girl of 10, had arrived home late and alerted neighbours. She was worried because there was no answer when she knocked on the door which was locked.
