JERUSALEM — Three West Bank Palestinians were sentenced today to life imprisonment for knifing a Jewish religious seminary student whose killing sparked a wave of anti-Arab violence.

Samer Makhrum and two brothers, Omar and Hamza Zaid, all in their early 20s, told the court they had no regrets for killing Eliahu Amedi, 22, in Jerusalem's Old City on Nov. 15. Amedi's killing sparked several days of attacks by enraged Jews against Arabs and Arab property.
