An Israeli guarding the West Bank security barrier killed a Palestinian teenager. Police said the guard, who was protecting a section of the fence near the Israeli town of Modi’in, opened fire last Friday after coming under a barrage of rocks thrown by local Palestinians. But other witnesses disputed the account, saying the slain 16-year-old was not taking part in any protest.
