Israeli murdered in Gaza

Arabs hacked an Israeli lawyer to death with axes and knives in the occupied Gaza Strip yesterday, according to security sources and witnesses, Reuters reports from Gaza City. A European Community spokeswoman said the dead man, Jan Feinberg, was a lawyer for a consulting firm that advises the EC on aid grants for Gaza housing and other needs. The radical Palestinian Red Eagle guerrilla group claimed responsibility for the attack. Israeli troops shot and wounded 17 Arabs in clashes yesterday in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian sources said.
