A Palestinian shot by Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank two weeks ago died of his wounds on Thursday, his family and a hospital official said.

The incident occurred during protests in support of a hunger strike by four Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

Mohammed Asfour, 22, was shot in the head and initially treated in a Palestinian hospital, his family said. He was later transferred to a hospital in Tel Aviv, where a spokesman said he died. Asfour's family said he would be buried on Friday.
