The parents of a 16-year-old girl were convicted of first-degree murder by a St. Louis jury that heard gruesome, secretly recorded tapes of the daughter's killing. A seven-minute tape of Tina Isa's death in 1989 was made by the FBI, which had hidden bugging devices in the home of Zein Isa, 61, and Maria Isa, 48, in an unrelated investigation of Zein Isa's possible ties to the Palestine Liberation Organization.

In a major crackdown on a Palestinian terrorist organization in the United States, four reputed members have been indicted on racketeering charges that include the killing of a teen-age daughter of one of them to silence her, conspiring to murder Jews and discussing the possibility of blowing up the Israeli Embassy here. The indictment, unsealed Thursday by a federal grand jury in St. Louis, marked the first legal action against the shadowy Abu Nidal organization here.

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.

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.
