Israeli police investigate after Palestinian shot mistakenly

Police say an investigation is underway after forces at a West Bank checkpoint shot and wounded a woman, thinking she was planning an attack, but who was later found to be unarmed.

Spokeswoman Luba Samri says the woman entered a vehicle-only lane Monday and advanced toward officers holding “something.” She was shot after ignoring calls to stop.
