File - In this July 5, 1999 file photo, Samuel Sheinbein, accused of the 1997 murder of Alfredo Tello Jr., in Maryland, is brought in handcuffs to a Tel Aviv court.  Israeli special forces raided a prison in central Israel on Sunday, killing one of the country's most notorious inmates after he seized a guard's weapon, shot three guards and barricaded himself inside the compound. Police identified the inmate as Samuel Sheinbein, an American who fled to Israel after committing a gruesome murder in Maryland in 1997 and whose case sparked a high-profile row between the two allies.(AP Photo/Nati Harnik, File)
