(Reuters) – Four Palestinians have been arrested and charged with the murder of an American tourist and attempted killing of another woman, both of whom were stabbed in December while hiking near Jerusalem, police said on Wednesday.
“It was politically motivated,” Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, announcing the arrests and indictments.
He said the four Palestinians had also been charged in Jerusalem District Court with the murder in February of an Israeli woman in the same area near the occupied West Bank.
