WORLD IN BRIEF : ISRAEL : Troops Forced Way Into Clinic, U.N. Says

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Israeli troops forced their way into a U.N. clinic in the occupied Gaza Strip and tried to arrest a Palestinian receiving emergency treatment for a serious gunshot wound, a U.N. spokeswoman said. The U.N. Relief and Works Agency spokeswoman said the soldiers beat two employees at the clinic in the Bureij refugee camp and may have suffered broken bones. The 18-year-old Palestinian, identified as Mohammed Hisham Nasser, was brought to the clinic suffering from an army bullet wound in the upper arm which had apparently severed an artery, she added.
