Tension rises in West Bank


Tensions have risen in the West Bank, as the international leaders of the Middle East Quartet held talks in Moscow.

Palestinians have been throwing stones at Israeli security forces, who fired tear gas in return.

A rocket was fired into southern Israel from the Gaza Strip.

It caused no injuries, but came a day after a rocket attack killed a Thai agricultural worker when it hit an Israeli kibbutz.
