U.S. condemns West Bank killing of five Israelis

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States on Saturday called the killing of five Israelis by a Palestinian on the West Bank a terrorist attack and urged the Palestinian Authority to "unequivocally" condemn it.

"There is no possible justification for the killing of parents and children in their home. We call on the Palestinian Authority to unequivocally condemn this terrorist attack," the White House said in a statement.
