A would-be suicide bomber was wounded when he set off his explosives after being confronted by Israeli troops. Security sources said the terrorist who blew himself up Sunday outside Karnei Shomron, a Jewish town in the West Bank, was believed to have been en route to Israel to carry out an attack. In a separate West Bank incident, troops shot dead an 18-year-old Palestinian after coming under a barrage of rocks in a village outside Nablus.
