Gaza Strip residents protesting the slayings of four suspected Arab terrorists in a shoot-out with security forces burned tires and threw rocks at Israeli vehicles and army patrols. Five Israeli passengers on a bus to Egypt were injured. No injuries were reported in Gaza City, but residents reached by telephone reported protests there and in nearby U.N.-operated refugee camps and said that all schools and 80% of the businesses were closed.
