Searchers found the wreckage of a missing Israeli air force plane on the western slopes of the Golan Heights, near the Syrian border, along with the body of the reservist captain who stole the craft, the army said. The discovery ended a massive search, launched a week ago after the twin-engine Dornier 28 was stolen from an air base in central Israel by Hagai Morry, 33. There had been speculation that Morry might have defected to a neighboring Arab country. But Maj. Gen.

The suicide bomber was dressed as an ultra-Orthodox Jew: black pants, beard, a skullcap. Still, he aroused suspicions on crowded Prophets Street during Tuesday's morning rush hour. As two police officers approached and demanded that he stop, the man turned, smiled and reached for a bag slung across his back. In a split second, the Palestinian blew himself up, hurling pieces of his body and dagger-like metal projectiles more than 30 feet.

Amid threats of new suicide bombings, Israeli officials said Tuesday that they are still struggling to determine the identities and allegiance of the two men who carried out last week's attack on a produce market here. The July 30 bombings have thrust Israeli and Palestinian peacemaking to a new low, setting off waves of angry recriminations from both sides that threaten to swamp the 4-year-old dialogue.

The day after a suicide bomber killed himself and 15 others last week in a Jerusalem pizzeria, Koby Sharf looked at his nearby Hillel Cafe--deserted by unnerved customers fearful of another attack--and took action. He hired a private security guard to stand at the front door. Having the burly, uniformed guard scrutinizing clients and their bags is not pleasant, Sharf said Tuesday. But he feels that he has no choice. "I have a regular clientele, and I saw that they were distressed," Sharf said.

To prepare for the happiest--and last--day of his life, Majdi abu Wardeh, 19, left the home of concrete blocks that he shared with his parents and nine brothers and sisters in this ramshackle refugee camp. Awaiting him, he knew, was spiritual and physical bliss beyond his imagination, an exalted status next to God and, among other delights, a heavenly marriage to 72 virgins with hauntingly beautiful eyes. Awaiting his family, he was sure, was a lifetime of honor and respect.

An attorney for convicted Nazi war criminal John Demjanjuk died Tuesday after jumping from an upper story of an office tower in an apparent suicide, a police spokesman said.

The appeal had been set to begin next Monday.

When a base doctor last month told Molla Belay to discard three crates of sandwiches that he had just prepared as part of his kitchen duties, the Ethiopian-born Israeli soldier assumed that the problem was not in the food but in prejudice here against his dark skin and ancestry, relatives say. Belay followed orders: He worked all night to remake the sandwiches. But the next day, trembling and barely able to speak, he put his rifle in his mouth and pulled the trigger.
