Netanyahu Blasts Police

JERUSALEM () -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Yasser Arafat's Palestinian Authority in remarks broadcast Friday against using policemen "as instruments of murder" aimed at Israelis.

Israel's army arrested three Palestinian police officers in the West Bank on Monday, announcing it had thwarted an attack on Jews at a settlement near Nablus.

"We cannot accept the violence as a principle of negotiations ... and certainly not the use of Palestinian policemen as instruments of murder against Israeli citizens," Netanyahu said.
