JERUSALEM (AFP) - A Palestinian who was seriously injured by a rubber bullet to the head during a protest which erupted after a prisoner died in Israeli custody died of his wounds on Thursday, medical officials said. “Mohammed Asfour died this morning after being in hospital for a long time after he was injured during a demonstration,” a spokesman for Tel Aviv’s Ichilov hospital told AFP. Asfour, a 22-year-old student studying sports, was seriously wounded by a rubber-coated steel bullet to the head fired by Israeli troops during a demonstration in the West Bank village of Abud on February 23, activists said. He was initially taken to a Palestinian hospital but later transferred to Ichilov, they said.
