    An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed that troops "indentified and hit" two armed men during the incursion.

    Several other Palestinians were detained for questioning, she said.

      

    Tuesday's deaths bring to 363 the number of people killed since Israelis and Palestinians revived their peace talks at a US meeting last November, according to an AFP count.

      

    At least 6,326 people have been killed since the start of the second Palestinian uprising in September 2000, the vast majority of them Palestinians, according to a separate AFP tally.
