A Palestinian news photographer was shot and seriously wounded Saturday night by a stray bullet from local protesters as he stood at the window of his home in downtown Ramallah, Palestinian security officials said. The officials named the man as freelance photographer Osama Awwad, 29, and said he was hit when activists of the Fatah movement fired their weapons in the air during a street protest against the rival Hamas group.
