GAZA BORDER (Reuters) – Israeli troops shot dead four Palestinian protesters and wounded at least 200 along the Israel-Gaza border on Friday, Gaza medical officials said, raising the death toll to 24 in the week-long disturbances.

They said the demonstrators, including a 16-year-old boy, were killed at protest sites along the frontier during a round of daily demonstrations that began on March 30 and have been dubbed “The Great March of Return”.

Gazans, including Palestinian refugees and their descendants seeking to regain ancestral homes in what is now Israel, have set up tent encampments a few hundred metres (yards) inside the 65-km (40-mile) fence that separates Israel from the Gaza Strip.
