Israeli police kill Arab citizen wanted for Tel Aviv shootings
By Dan Williams JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli police killed in a shootout on Friday an Arab citizen wanted for a Jan. 1 gun rampage in Tel Aviv, the security services said, ending a week-long manhunt but not the public mystery over what motivated his attack. Israeli media showed pictures of Nashat Melhem's body, with a submachine gun next to it, outside what they said was a mosque in his northern hometown where he was hiding from authorities. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a statement congratulated the security forces, who he said had "worked tirelessly, methodically and professionally to locate and eliminate the terrorist".
