Questions over Israeli shooting

Doctors say Palestinians killed at protest were shot by live rounds but Israel denies this.

    The Israeli government denies its soldiers used live ammunition during a demonstration in the occupied West Bank on Saturday.

    The army issued a statement saying its soldiers only fired rubber coated steel bullets against what they described as a "violent and illegal riot" in the village.

    However, men died when they were hit by what doctors say were live rounds.

    Israel reportedly plans to launch an investigation.
