Palestinians released an Israeli Arab in the southern West Bank town of Hebron Wednesday, whom they had briefly kidnapped in what police said was a falling out over a financial debt. Anonymous gunmen abducted the man from northern Israel after he arrived in Hebron to get his car repaired, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa. He was freed after several hours and handed over to Israeli police in the divided city by Palestinian security services. He will be accused of violating a military order prohibiting Israeli citizens from entering Palestinian-controlled areas and released on bail, said the spokesman.
