An Israeli who commandeered a sightseeing bus and shot the driver and a passenger to death apparently took his own life as police stormed the bus, a prosecutor said Monday. Autopsy results showed gunpowder burns on Leon Bor's head. Police didn't shoot from up close, although a police sharpshooter's bullet that hit Bor in the neck probably would have been fatal, prosecutor Karl Utermann said.

Disclosing the first fresh lead in the Sept. 11 terror investigation here in nearly a month, German authorities said Friday they have issued an international arrest warrant for a 24-year-old Moroccan believed to have been part of the Hamburg terrorist cell that plotted and carried out the U.S. attacks.

The Russian-born Israeli gunman walked down the aisle of the bus asking the elderly tourists where they were from. When he came to the first German to respond, he shot the 64-year-old woman three times, killing her. Then he took her picture. Twenty minutes later, police stormed the bus and killed the gunman, 31-year-old Leon Bor, with a single shot to the head. Bor had held police at bay for about seven hours Friday just across the Rhine River from a historic cathedral.
