Sappers did not find weapons or an explosives device on the body of a Palestinian man who was shot and killed after he aroused the suspicions of border policemen at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Wednesday night. Border Police forces shot the man after he refused to be searched, fled toward other security forces at a different post, and refused to heed their calls that he stop.
