Aug. 21, 2009 12:20 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 21, 2009 9:37 P.M.)
Tubas – Ma’an – A clan clash in Tubas caused the death of a young man and incineration of five houses Thursday night.

Palestinian Authority police arrested five in connection with the death of the 23-year-old Husny Ziad Abed Sawafta. An additional 38 were injured. Sawafta was shot point blank with a 9mm.

The police said Sawafta’s family set fire to the homes to avenge the death of their son, and the fires lead to street-side brawls.
