WORLD : West Bank Settlers Jeer Shamir

From Times wire services

Shouting "traitor" and "go home," enraged Jewish settlers jeered Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir and nearly drowned out his speech today at the funeral of a slain U.S.-born Israeli citizen.

Hundreds of Jews attended the tumultuous service for Frederick Rosenfeld, who was stabbed to death Saturday while hiking in an isolated area near the settlement of Ariel in the Israeli-occupied West Bank where he lived. While Rosenfeld's wooden casket was being lowered into a grave, several flag-waving Israelis yelled for revenge and a change in the government.
