Injuries in anti-fence protest

At least 10 protesters were injured in clashes with Border Police in a demonstration against Israel’s West Bank security fence. Forces fired rubber bullets at protesters, who gather weekly in the village of Bil’in. Palestinian supporters say the fence, which has led to a drastic drop in suicide bombings and other attacks, imposes hardships on Palestinians. Also Friday, Palestinian youths clashed with Israeli soldiers at a road block north of Jerusalem. Two protesters were treated after being shot in the legs.
