Official: Israeli troops shoot, kill 14-year Palestinian boy


JERUSALEM (AP) — A Palestinian official says a 14-year-old Palestinian boy has been shot dead by Israeli troops.

Wagie Ahmad, head of the Beit Our local council in the West Bank, says Mahmoud Badran was killed and four others were wounded early on Tuesday when their car was fired upon by a military patrol.

The Ramallah hospital says another person was moderately wounded and three were lightly wounded.

The Israeli military had no immediate response. Israeli media says the shooting took place after rocks were hurled at Israeli vehicles, wounding three.
