Omar Nayef Zayed

Ynetnews reports:  Wanted terrorist Omar Nayef Zayed was found dead at the Palestinian embassy in Bulgaria, local media reported on Friday morning.

Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) member Zayed, 51, was convicted along with his brother and another Palestinian of the murder of yeshiva student Eliyahu Amadi at Jerusalem’s Old City in 1986, when he was 22 years old.

He was sentenced to life in prison, and four years later went on a hunger strike. After 40 days he was transferred to a mental hospital in Bethlehem to receive treatment.

Then, in May 1990, he managed to escape the hospital and hide until he was able to flee Israel to Arab countries – where he lived until 1994, when he settled in Bulgaria. The 51 years old, originally from the Palestinian village of Al-Yamun near Jenin in the West Bank, got married in Bulgaria and had three children, all Bulgarian nationals.
