Three More Palestinians Killed

Two Palestinians were killed Tuesday and a teen-ager died of earlier injuries.

The Israel Defense Force and local police are investigating the reported death of Nasser Shaheen Abu Katrina, 17.

His family said he was shot during the night on the outskirts of the El-Amari refugee camp, near the West Bank town of Ramallah. But his body has not been found.

Soldiers were stoned when they entered the camp to question residents about the killing. A curfew was imposed.

A 20-year-old man from Khan Yunis, at the southern end of the Gaza Strip, was shot to death during demonstrations in the Deir el-Balah market.

Local sources said three persons were injured.

Meanwhile, a 15-year-old Arab girl from the Askar refugee camp near Nablus died Tuesday of head wounds received during a clash with the IDF last week.
