JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli media reports say two more of the six Palestinians who broke out of a maximum-security prison this week have been arrested, leaving two prisoners at large. The prisoners captured Saturday morning included Zakaria Zubeidi, a well-known militant leader from the second Palestinian uprising in the early 2000s. There were no immediate details where the latest two escapees had been caught. It came hours after Israeli police said they had caught two of the six Palestinians whose daring escape has captured the country’s attention. The six Palestinians tunneled out of the Gilboa prison on Monday, setting off a furious manhunt across Israel and in the West Bank.
