sraeli soldiers on Tuesday shot and killed a
9-year-old Palestinian boy in Nablus as he sat on the front steps of his
home eating a sandwich, relatives said.
The troops were enforcing a curfew when they drove by 9-year-old Khaled
Usta's home, the boy's aunt, Ferial Usta said. Youths threw stones at the
troops, but the group fled when the soldiers got out of the jeep and
pointed their guns at a fence just behind the boys, she said.
Khaled was sitting just behind the fence eating a sandwich when one of the
soldiers fired his rifle, the aunt said
