Palestinians bury teenager killed by Israeli forces

Hundreds of Palestinians have attended a funeral in the occupied West Bank town of Beita, of a teenager who medical sources said had died after being shot by Israeli soldiers during clashes in the town.

Mourners carried the boy's body on their shoulders and waved Palestinian flags while chanting national slogans.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health said that the 15-year-old boy, Ahmed Bani Shamsa, was shot in the head on Wednesday evening, before his death was announced on Thursday at Rafidia Hospital in Nablus from his injuries.
