    Background: A teenage Arab girl was shot dead an two youths were wounded on Sunday (16 May) during new clashes in Nablus on the West Bank, between Israeli soldiers and demonstrators protesting against Israelis occupation. As the news of the girl's death spread through the town, more riots broke out with increased violence.

    Crowds of Arab youths built barricades and started fires in the streets as the girl's funeral was being held. Israeli solders stood by with guns at the ready, while hundreds of demonstrators shouted slogans and waved Palestinian flags.

    The dead girl was named as 17 year-old Lina Nabulsi. She died of two bullet wounds after being chased into an apartment block by a solider helping to quell hundreds of youthful demonstrators who had been throwing stones in the old part of Nablus. The Nablus area has been swept by riots for the past three months.

    Miss Nabulsi was the daughter of a prominent Nablus merchant who is related to a former Prime Minister of Jordan.

    The two youths who were wounded were hit during an Arab demonstrators protesting against the girl's death.

    The Israeli Army said that the girl was killed by bullets accidentally fired by a soldier who was chasing demonstrators. The soldier's patrol had been stoned by Arab youths in the ancient Casbah quarter of the town. The military spokesman said that an investigation was already underway.

    Later the Israeli Military Government in the town announced that the Military Governor had visited the girl's parents to express regrets and to explain the shooting.

    However, Miss Nabulsi's family has announced that it intends to take legal action against the Israeli Army. And the Nablus City Council and the Chamber of Commerce has ordered a one-day general strike in the town.
