Video Raises Questions about Israeli Shooting of Palestinian

Israeli troops on Monday shot and killed a young Palestinian man during clashes in a West Bank refugee camp, but an amateur video indicated the man was unarmed and not participating in the unrest when he was shot. The Israeli military said it was investigating. The Palestinian Health Ministry said Omar Badawi, 22, was shot in the chest during the confrontation in the Aroub refugee camp, near the city of Hebron, and later died of his wounds. The Israeli military said that troops had arrived in the refugee camp after Palestinians threw rocks and firebombs at a nearby highway.
