    "During the night, soldiers spotted three Palestinians approaching the  security barrier [between the Gaza Strip and Israel] and fired warning shots, first into the air and then at their legs, after having ordered them in vain to stop," an Israeli military spokesman said.

      

    He said: "The three men were not armed. One of them was killed, the two others lightly wounded. They were evacuated to a hospital in Israel and are to be questioned."

      

    The latest death brings to 5,629 the number of people killed since the start of the intifada or uprising in September 2000, most of them Palestinians, according to a count by the AFP news agency.
