RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinian youths were stabbed to death early Monday in Ramallah and Jericho, Palestinian police said, with clashes breaking out in Ramallah between protesters and Palestinian security forces.

Muhammad Youssef Khamis al-Hajj, 22, was stabbed to death in al-Amari refugee camp in Ramallah during a fight with another youth, police said.

Police arrested a suspect at the scene.

Azmi Muhammad Shaker Muhanna, 34, was stabbed to death in Aqaba refugee camp late Sunday.

Protests later broke out at the entrance to al-Amari refugee camp, with protesters setting fire to a vehicle belonging to security forces after a demonstration was broken up by security officers.

Protesters also blocked the main Ramallah-Jerusalem highway and prevented cars from passing.
