Israel repatriates 4 Jordanian prisoners
( AP ) - Israel on Thursday repatriated four Jordanian infiltrators who were serving life sentences in Israeli prisons for killing Israeli soldiers, the prisons authority said.
The transfer was cleared after Israel's Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected a petition to block it.
Three of the men crossed into Israel in November 1990 and got into a firefight with Israeli troops, killing one. The other killed a second Israeli soldier in a separate incident that same year. The attacks took place before Israel signed a peace accord with Jordan in 1994.
In February, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said he had agreed to request from King Abdullah II of Jordan to send the four back home to serve out their sentences.
