Palestinian Authority Sentences Killers of Israeli Official

A Palestinian military court on Thursday sentenced four Palestinian militants to prison terms of up to 18 years for the assassination of Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavaam Zeevi, official Palestinian sources said. Israel has demanded Arafat hand over the four and Fouad Shubaki who arranged a 50-ton arms shipment from Iran to the Palestinian Authority and allegedly paid for suicide bombings.

Arafat formed the court three days ago and the panel of three military judges was headed by Brig. Rebhi Arafat.

Israeli Prime Minister Sharon has said they will be tried in Israeli courts.
