Medics at Hevron's Alia hospital told Agence France Presse, Tuesday morning, that there were signs a teenager who was killed during a riot in the nearby village of Dura died after being run over but said there was no immediate evidence of gunshot wounds on his body. A Palestinian Authority (PA) police spokesman had told AFP that the youth was knocked down and killed by an Israeli military jeep after several hours of clashes between stone throwers and troops which began at midnight.

An Israel military spokeswoman said initial reports suggested soldiers had fired at a youth who had climbed onto a military vehicle. PA sources said the funeral would begin at 1:00 p.m.
