A Palestinian militant was killed in Bethlehem when the phone booth he was using exploded. Mohammed Abayat was the third member of the Abayat clan killed during the intifada. The Abayats are local heads of the militias of Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat’s Fatah movement, which have been blamed for terrorist attacks against Israelis. Palestinians blamed Israel for Abayat’s death, but the Israeli army declined to comment.
