Palestinian Schoolgirl Killed

A 15-year-old Palestinian schoolgirl was shot to death Monday in a clash with the Israel Defense Force at the Shati refugee camp in Gaza, Arab sources reported. There was no confirmation from IDF sources.

The Arab sources identified the victim as Asma Abu-Abadde, whom they said was fatally shot by Israeli soldiers breaking up a violent demonstration at a girls school in the camp.

Four other Palestinians were wounded Monday in riots in various parts of the Gaza Strip.
