Israeli soldier killed in West Bank, military says

JERUSALEM, May 7 (Reuters) - An Israeli soldier was shot dead in the occupied West Bank on Thursday during a confrontation with Palestinians, a military spokesman said.

Israeli media said the military was investigating the possibility that the soldier was killed by "friendly fire" from a fellow soldier.

The military spokesman said the shooting took place in a village north of the West Bank city of Ramallah. (Writing by Ari Rabinovitch; Editing by Andrew Dobbie)
