JERUSALEM (Reuter) - Israeli soldiers yesterday shot and wounded 57 Palestinians in clashes in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian sources said. Most of the wounded were from the village of Jebaliya, where violence erupted after the army broke up a wake for a Palestinian killed by troops last week.

In a separate incident, three soldiers were slightly hurt when a hand-grenade was thrown at an Israeli army position.
