Palestinian man shot dead in clash with Israeli soldiers | guardian.co.uk

A Palestinian man has been shot dead in a clash with Israeli soldiers and settlers in the West Bank.

Hours before President Mahmoud Abbas’s address to the United Nations general assembly and his formal request for recognition of a Palestinian state, the man, identified as Issam Badran, 35, was shot in the neck, according to witnesses including an Associated Press reporter.

The incident began with a warning broadcast made over mosque speakers in Qusra of an approach by settlers from a nearby outpost. Scores of village men and youths headed towards a hill where around 20 settlers had gathered, waving Israeli flags.
