Rumour sparks Hebron settler riot


Jewish settlers in the West Bank city of Hebron have rioted for several hours. Reports say several Palestinians were injured.

Dozens clashed with Israeli troops as rumours spread that Israeli forces were about to evict the settlers from a disputed building in the mainly Palestinian city.

Israeli soldiers used stun grenades against the settlers, most of them teenagers, near the building.
