December 10, 2014 13:48

The death of a Palestinian minister who died shortly after clashes with Israeli troops in the West Bank on Wednesday has sparked outrage in the Palestinian Authority.

After Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the death of Ziad Abu Ein, a PA minister without portfolio, as a "barbaric assassination'" that would not be tolerated, the PA's foreign minister too, lashed out at Israel.

Foreign Minister Riad al-Maliki promised that the Jewish state would "pay for the killing of Abu Ein."
