Palestinian Teen Killed; Settlement Is Dismantled

From Times Wire Reports

A Palestinian teen was shot to death in a clash with Israeli soldiers in the West Bank. Three other youths were wounded, witnesses said.

Ahmed Abahreh, 15, was shot in the head, doctors at Jenin Hospital said. Witnesses said he was tossing stones at troops; the army said he threw a firebomb.

The violence came as troops dismantled a Jewish settlement near Hebron, the first such outpost taken down since Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s new government took office last month.
