A member of the Alasam Beduin tribe was killed and three were wounded - two seriously, one moderately - after a brawl erupted into a shoot out on Wednesday evening on the Dimona-Beersheba Highway near the Beduin town of Arouar. The dead man and the wounded were all in their 20s. The incident began as a fight among kids but soon deteriorated into a fatal firefight.
