Fatah leader shot dead in Nablus
A student leader of the Palestinian Fatah movement has been shot dead by gunmen in the West Bank town of Nablus, Palestinian officials have said.

Nasser Badawi, 37, was killed outside his home in the Balata refugee camp.

He was a local leader within the Fatah movement who also ran the Fatah students union at the Nablus branch of the al-Quds University.

The officials said they did not know who killed him, but said it may have been the result of internal unrest.

Israel said it had no troops in the area, while Palestinian sources said they did not believe the shooting was the result of any activity by the Israeli army.
