A Palestinian shot by Israeli soldiers during a confrontation with stone-throwers in the occupied West Bank two weeks ago died of his wounds on Thursday, his family and a hospital official said.
The incident occurred during protests in support of a hunger strike by four Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails. Mohammed Asfour, 22, was shot in the head and initially treated in a Palestinian hospital. He was later transferred to a hospital in Tel Aviv, where a spokesman said he died. (Reuters)
