Israeli commandos killed 2 terrorists, report says

An Israeli military commission has determined that two Arabs who hijacked a bus were beaten to death after Israeli troops stormed the vehicle to rescue hostages, a Defense Ministry statement said Monday.

The statement said some security forces personnel ''may have broken the law'' and that a separate investigation will be held to determine if they would be prosecuted.

The report said the commission found that there were no specific orders given the troops who assaulted the bus as to what should be done with captured guerrillas. Two other hijackers and one of their 25 hostages were killed when the Israelis stormed the bus on April 13.
