The body of a kidnaped Lebanese Jew was found in West Beirut after his Muslim extremist captors said they killed him to avenge a raid on a Shia Muslim village by an Israeli-backed southern Lebanese militia. Police said the body of Isaac Tarrab was found near Beirut's devastated downtown area. Tarrab was the second kidnaped Lebanese Jew to be murdered in a week. His captors, called the Organization for the Oppressed on Earth, claim to hold two other missing members of Beirut's small Jewish community.
