Eight Palestinians die in clash

At least eight Palestinians have been killed in clashes during an Israeli army raid on the Gaza Strip – the deadliest incursion for weeks. Palestinian militants opened fire as tanks went into Gaza City’s al-Zeitoun area, witnesses said. The fighting came hours before Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qurei had talks with United States Middle East envoy, John Wolf. Mr Qurei told reporters the killings had been raised in their discussions. He said he had called for an end to what he described as “this continuous aggression against our people”. Mr Qurei said his talks with Mr Wolf had covered all issues, including how to make progress under the US-backed roadmap plan for peace. He said he was happy that the Americans were getting involved in the peace process once more, and added that he had asked the US to help prepare the way for him to have a meeting with his Israeli counterpart, Ariel Sharon.
