Palestinian minister dies after troop clash

A Palestinian minister has died after a confrontation with Israeli troops in the West Bank.

Ziad Abu Ein was taking part in a tree-planting demonstration in Turmus Aya when he was hit in the chest by an Israeli soldier's helmet and teargas was fired.

He then began to experience breathing problems, and died while he was being taken to hospital by ambulance.

Announcing three days of national mourning, Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas called Mr Abu Ein's death "a barbaric act which we cannot be silent about or accept."
