JERUSALEM — Israeli troops shot and killed an Arab youth in a demonstration Saturday in the occupied West Bank town of Janin, Israel Radio said. Protests broke out in at least four other West Bank towns.
An army spokeswoman denied that soldiers opened fire in Janin, where the death was reported. "We have had a report from the hospital that a man died, and the army is checking if there is a connection," said the military spokeswoman, speaking on condition of anonymity. "The army did not see a body; the army used gas and rubber bullets only."
