Three executed for betrayal of Palestinians

Two Palestinians have been executed in public and a third has died of wounds sustained in a mysterious car explosion in the West Bank.

    Action against proven collaborators is often swift

    Witnesses to the first incident said gunmen shot and killed the men, aged 21 and 25, after they had confessed to collaborating with Israeli intelligence.

    They said the gunmen played a videotape of the confessions to residents of the Tulkarm camp before executing the suspects in the street.

    In the West Bank city of Nablus, medical officials said a 15-year-old activist from the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a group linked to Palestinian President Yasir Arafat's Fatah movement, died of wounds sustained in a mysterious car explosion on Wednesday night.

    Palestinian security officials said the blast, which wounded two other people, may have been caused when a bomb detonated prematurely.

    But the officials did not rule out sabotage by Israeli intelligence. Israeli military sources denied responsibility.
