Hundreds of mourners, many armed with M-16 rifles, marched through the West Bank settlement of Berakha to bury a Jewish settler bludgeoned to death by a Palestinian shepherd. In the nearby village of Burin, Israeli troops blew up the shepherd’s home, Israel Radio said. Israel routinely destroys homes of Arabs suspected of anti-Israeli activities. The shepherd also killed a soldier and wounded two others in the Tuesday incident before troops shot him to death.
