JERUSALEM - Masked Palestinian gunmen carried out execution-style killings yesterday of two Palestinians suspected of being informants for Israel and placed their bodies in the central square of the Tulkarm refugee camp in the West Bank. Palestinian militants have killed dozens of suspected informers or collaborators during the past three years of fighting. Such attacks often draw little attention, but the gunmen responsible for this shooting sought to publicize their deed both beforehand and afterward.

Baltimore County police have identified the woman found dead in the rental office of a Reisterstown development as 29-year-old Melinda Schaefer. It appeared as though she had stab wounds, department spokesman Ofc. Shawn Vinson said Saturday. A full autopsy was still being carried out, he added. Officers responded to the office of the Townes at Harvest View on Augusta Ridge Road on Friday morning, after Schaefer was found by a cleaner on the first floor of the building. The development is made up of tidy two- and three-bedroom townhomes laid out around a central square; the homes rent for between $1,500 and $1,900, according to the management company's website.

Baltimore police conceded on Tuesday that officers inappropriately allowed hundreds of St. Patrick's Dayrevelers to turn Canton's public square into an unsanctioned outdoor beer garden, but authorities also pleaded for people to party responsibly. The recriminations came after residents of the Southeast Baltimore community and bar district endured a day and night of nonstop partying at O'Donnell Square that led to vandalism, public urination and rowdy behavior likened to a frat house.

MOSCOW -- The opposition politician who last month led protests against the re-election victory of President Aleksandr G. Lukashenko of Belarus was ordered jailed yesterday a day after denouncing the president at a rally in the Belarusian capital. A court in Minsk ordered that Aleksandr Milinkevich serve 15 days in prison for participating in what it deemed an unsanctioned rally during which he called for Lukashenko's impeachment and vowed to "depose this regime" through peaceful protests.

MANY HOPE that Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon will bring peace to the troubled border. But without acknowledgment of the destruction visited on Lebanon by Israel over the last 32 years, some Lebanese will not forgive and forget. Guerrillas will continue to fire rockets over Israel's northern frontier, triggering retaliations and more fighting. If the international community pushes Israel to acknowledge and compensate its Lebanese victims, however, the hostilities will finally end. I'll take a first step by apologizing for my own misdeeds.

MEXICO CITY -- Elections officials began recounting yesterday nearly 12,000 disputed ballots from the last month's presidential election, while supporters of second-place finisher Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador expanded their civil disobedience to a blockade of three bank buildings. The recount was ordered last week by a seven-judge tribunal that has the final say over election matters. A new president must be declared within a month or the results of the July 2 election are void. Lopez Obrador and his lawyers filed appeals to the Federal Electoral Tribunal claiming errors and fraud steered the election to Felipe Calderon, who won by less than a percentage point.
