A 21-year-old Palestinian has died in clashes with Israeli troops in the West Bank, officials said.

Yehya Taha died in a Ramallah hospital of bullet wounds, said health ministry spokesman Mohammed Awawdeh.

Palestinian media said Mr Taha died following an army raid of the village of Qattana.

Since mid-September, 19 Israelis and at least 92 Palestinians have died, mostly from stabbings and shootings.
