RAMALLAH (AFP) - Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian teenager near the separation barrier in the northern West Bank on Tuesday, Palestinian medical and security sources told AFP. Samir Ahmed Awad, 17, died after being hit by three bullets during an incident which took place in the West Bank village of Budrus, medical sources and the mayor said. The shooting struck by a school 200 metres (yards) from Israel’s separation barrier, where a handful of students had thrown stones at Israeli troops after finishing their exams, Budrus Mayor Mohammed Morar told AFP. In a separate incident, Palestinian medics said troops had shot and injured one person by the nearby village of Deir Nidham who was taken to Israel.
