Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat's government Monday offered amnesty to suspected collaborators with Israel--an apparent attempt to blunt international outrage over executions of informers and to thwart Israel's campaign of assassinating Palestinian militants. Despite this shadowy war fought by the two sides, peace talks were to resume today, after a day's break called by Israel over the killing of a Jewish settler by Palestinians near his greenhouse in the Gaza Strip.

There were five fatalities related to the uprising. On Saturday, the body of an Israeli settler on the West Bank was found hidden in his van, his body covered with knife wounds.

The tattered state of the case was highlighted Monday during the final day of prosecution arguments in the long appeal of the retired auto worker from Cleveland.

The closure, enforced beginning at 1 a.m., came on the heels of a weekend visit by Secretary of State Colin L. Powell aimed at jump-starting peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.
