Italian man seriously wounded at West Bank protest

Posted:

 A Palestinian hospital official says an Italian man marching in support of Palestinians in the northern West Bank has been shot and seriously wounded by Israeli forces.

   Ramallah Hospital director Ahmad Bitawi says 30-year-old Patrick Corsi was shot during a peaceful protest Friday in the village of Kufr Qadom, near Nablus. He described Corsi's condition as stable.

   Village resident Khaldon Ishtawi said Israeli soldiers opened fire on about 400 protesters from a distance of about 40 meters and shot Corsi in the chest.

   He said the soldiers fired without provocation.

   The Israeli military said it was investigating the incident.
