Six Palestinians arrested last month in Hebron by undercover Israeli security forces were finally told their charges Monday morning: they are accused by Israeli security of killing six Israeli colonists in the Hebron area in shooting incidents over the past several months.

The shooting incidents took place near the Israeli colony Beit Haggai and settlement block Gush Etzion, and involved armed men shooting from a car at Israeli settlers who were standing at bus stops.  One of the incidents involved the shooting of a settler in a car.
