Hundreds of Palestinians have attended the funeral of a 22-year-old who was shot dead on Tuesday by Israeli soldiers in the West bank.

The young man died as the Israeli troops tired to arrest a suspected Hamas militant but were confronted by scores of rock-throwing locals.

More clashes erupted after the funeral.

An Israeli military spokesperson said the man was shot dead while trying to throw an explosive device at the soldiers.
