A fundamentalist Muslim couple were sentenced to death Thursday for killing their teen-age daughter, whose screams for mercy were recorded secretly by the FBI. Zein Isa, 61, and his wife, Maria, 48, were sentenced to die by injection for the 1989 stabbing death of 16-year-old Tina Isa at the family's apartment. The FBI had bugged the apartment, reportedly as part of an investigation into whether Zein Isa was involved with the Palestine Liberation Organization.

A suspected member of the Abu Nidal terrorist group said in a taped conversation that the organization could mobilize and train young people to "slaughter" 3,000 Jews in the United States, the FBI said Monday. Another alleged associate of the group agreed to blow up the Israeli Embassy in Washington and asked for a bomb, the FBI said in an affidavit filed at a federal detention hearing for that man, one of four suspected Abu Nidal members in the U.S. Midwest who were indicted last week.
