Palestinian cameraman filming ME clashes killed

NABLUS: A Palestinian cameraman was killed by Israeli gunfire on Saturday morning as he filmed clashes in the central Casbah district of this northern West Bank city, Palestinian medics said. Nazeh Darwazi, 38, a journalist for Palestinian television, was killed by a live bullet, the medics said. His death followed clashes between Israeli troops and Palestinian stone throwers in which five Palestinians were lightly injured by rubber bullets.

Home attacked: A stick of dynamite was thrown at the home of an official of Fatah movement in this south Lebanon refugee camp early Saturday. Gunfire was heard after the blast outside the home of Jamil Zeidan, which caused neither casualties or damage.

Incursion: Israeli army troops staged a raid on Saturday into the autonomous northern West Bank town of Jenin in which three Palestinians were killed and dozens injured. Soldiers, who entered the town in about 20 armoured vehicles, fired warning shots using rubber bullets and ordered residents to respect a curfew in the town, sources said. Meanwhile, the Israeli army said that since the Jewish festival of Passover began late Wednesday it had arrested at least nine Palestinians, including Islamic Jihad militant Amer Ahmed Mohamed Mabruk, who had either planned or sought to carry out suicide attacks.
