Wearing a white bulletproof vest, Yigal Amir was lead by police back to the spot where he killed Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin today. As angry onlookers screamed insults, Amir calmly reenacted the assassination. Using a plastic pistol, he showed how he shot Rabin in the back, narrating his movements for a policeman with a tape recorder. "It was eerie," says TIME's Edward Barnes. "They did this at three in the morning and there was still a crowd." Barnes says that such reenactments are common in Israel, especially when suspects have confessed. "It does tend to reinforce the view that this guy was a lone gunman, lurking in the shadows. There is still no evidence that he had help in planning or executing the attack."
