More than a dozen Palestinians were wounded in a second day of clashes with Israeli troops in the West Bank. Israeli security police were on high alert for possible revenge attacks in the wake of the shooting deaths of three Palestinian workers by Israeli troops at a roadblock. Meanwhile, Israeli officials released from detention the soldiers who killed the workers, saying they had opened fire believing that they were under attack when the driver veered into them at the roadblock.
