Police capture 4 of 6 Palestinian escapees
Israeli police on Saturday said they have arrested four of the six Palestinians who broke out of a maximum-security prison last week — including militant leader Zakaria Zubeidi, whose exploits over the years have made him a well-known figure.
The arrests moved Israel closer to ending an embarrassing episode that exposed deep flaws in its prison system and turned the fugitive prisoners into Palestinian heroes. Late Friday, Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired a rocket into Israel in an apparent sign of solidarity, drawing Israeli airstrikes in reprisal.
