World : Palestinian Killed in Hospital Bed

June 08, 1989| From Times wire services

JERUSALEM — Assailants shot a Palestinian man to death on his hospital bed today in the occupied West Bank, and Arab reports claimed that he collaborated with Israel.

The fatal attack occurred in Rafidiyeh Hospital in the West Bank town of Nablus, where Taleb Yamin, 55, had been convalescing from injuries suffered 10 days earlier in a clubbing and stabbing attack in Nablus' old city, two hospital doctors said.

"A group of people entered the hospital at 5 a.m. They forced a male nurse and a relative to leave the room. Then they opened fire, killing him instantly," Rafidiyeh's director, Abdel Rahman Shinar, said.
