Iraq Burin closed after settler shoots farmer

Jan. 28, 2011 2:44 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 29, 2011 4:40 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Locals from the northern West Bank village of Iraq Burin, where a 19-year-old farmer was shot by settlers on Thursday, said large numbers of Israeli forces had occupied the area.

Villagers said no clashes had erupted, but with the funeral of the slain teenager expected to take place on Friday afternoon after the body was released from the hospital, confrontations were expected.

Earlier in the day, medical officials released the results of an autopsy, which found that the bullet which killed Uday Qadous entered his body at the shoulder from point blank range and ripped through his lung.

Qadous, a farmer from the northern West Bank village of Iraq Burin, was shot by men his cousin identified as Israeli settlers from the Bracha settlement.

Head of medicine at the hospital Ziyad Al-Ashhab had ordered an autopsy performed, and said he handed the results over to Nablus general attorney Baha Ahmad.
