Sec. establishment assesses Asheri was kidnapped

The security establishment was assessing on Tuesday that Itamar resident Eliyahu Asheri, who went missing on Sunday, was in fact kidnapped. The assessment was based on circumstantial evidence, including a claim made by the Popular Resistance Committees that an Israeli was kidnapped in Judea and Samaria, though the IDF and Shin Bet had no concrete proof, Israel Radio reported.
