Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

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.
