Two Palestinians who killed three Israelis in an attack in an ultra-Orthodox Jewish town on Israel's Independence Day on Thursday have been apprehended, Israeli security forces said in a statement on Sunday.

The attack was the latest in a recent upsurge of Israeli-Palestinian violence that has raised fears of a slide back to wider conflict. "The two terrorists who murdered three Israeli civilians in the deadly attack in the city of Elad have been caught," Israel's police, Shin Bet security services, and the military said in a joint statement, which gave no further details. Israeli forces had mounted an extensive search since the incident, in which two ax-wielding assailants, whom Israel said resided in the occupied West Bank, ran through the town, some 15 km (nine miles) north of Tel Aviv.
