Israeli soldiers kill Palestinian at checkpoint

Israeli soldiers shot dead a Palestinian man who arrived at an army checkpoint south of the West Bank city of Hebron, Palestinian officials and Israeli medics said on Saturday.

Soldiers manning the checkpoint opened fire on Khalil al-Za'ari, 28, late on Friday after he ignored calls to drop his knife, an army spokeswoman said.

The man died on his way to a hospital in Israel, Israeli medics said.
