WORLD : Palestinians Kill Wrong Man

<i> From Times wire services</i>

Masked Palestinians today axed a fellow Arab to death as an alleged collaborator, then discovered they killed the wrong man and declared him a “martyr” of their uprising, Arab reporters said.

The suspected collaborator, an 18-year-old man, was killed in Beit Iba, a village of about 2,000 people near Nablus in the occupied West Bank.

Shops and businesses in Arab east Jerusalem closed to protest the deaths of two brothers who were shot and killed by soldiers Wednesday night for throwing stones at Israeli cars.

In the occupied Gaza Strip, 12 Palestinians were shot and wounded by Israeli soldiers in stone-throwing clashes, hospital officials said.
