TEL AVIV — A Jewish seminary student was stabbed to death Saturday and Israeli soldiers shot a Palestinian youth to death in unrelated incidents in East Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank.

Amedi Eliahu, 22, a student from the Shuvu Banim seminary, was stabbed to death by three Palestinians in East Jerusalem near the Muslim quarter of the Old City, police spokesman Rafi Levy said.

"He fought back and succeeded in knifing one of them. They ran off and were chased by members of the border police who captured the three near the Church of the Holy Sepulcher," Levy told the Associated Press. "It was, without doubt, a terrorist attack."

In the West Bank, captured from Jordan in 1967, Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian youth found wandering Friday in an army camp near Nablus, Israel television said Saturday. Soldiers called on the youth to stop and identify himself and shot him when he failed to do so, the television reported.

In a separate incident in the occupied Gaza Strip, an Israeli military source said a bottle bomb thrown at an army patrol Saturday exploded on the street and wounded a Palestinian woman.
