Scene of the crime: Israeli soldiers stand guard at the entrance to a home in the West Bank Jewish settlement of Itamar late Saturday. A Palestinian infiltrated Itamar early Saturday and killed five people in a knife attack as they slept: two young children, a baby and their parents. Israel hunted for the perpetrators Saturday, appealing for help from the Palestinian Authority, which sent security forces to join the manhunt. It was a rare instance of the two sides both searching for militant suspects, though Israeli forces and those of the Western-backed Palestinian Authority in the West Bank do cooperate on security issues.
