Palestinian Detainee Death Sparks West Bank Clashes

Israeli officials on Monday (February 25) called on the Palestinian Authority to control demonstrators, as tensions ran high hours before a funeral for a Palestinian detainee who died in an Israeli prison. Scores of Palestinian youth clashed with Israeli security forces in the West Bank village of Beit Ainoon, near Se'eer where a funeral for 30-year-old Arafat Jaradat was to be held.
