CNN BREAKING NEWS

Shooting Attack in West Bank

Aired June 30, 2003 - 06:49   ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

CAROL COSTELLO, CNN ANCHOR: This just in to CNN, there has been a shooting in the West Bank.
Our senior international editor David Clinch is here to fill us in.

Do we know what happened?

DAVID CLINCH, CNN SENIOR INTERNATIONAL EDITOR: Yes, Carol, good morning.

Well there are some early reports that we're getting. You know the cease-fire has been signed now by the militant groups indicating there should be no attacks against Israelis anywhere in the West Bank, Gaza or in Israel itself.

Well now we're getting a report that there has apparently been a shooting incident in the West Bank today in which a non-Israeli, a guest worker as they call them, or a foreign worker who has been working in the West Bank, has been shot in the head today. And we do not, as yet, know for sure who has done it and nobody has admitted responsibility or claimed responsibility. But it is and perhaps they were aiming for an Israeli that was a militant attack.

But the question, of course, is what does it mean if it ends up not being an Israeli? Well that may be reading too much into it, we're not sure, but it definitely is going to have an effect on today's events.

The Israelis have withdrawn from Gaza already and now announcing they'll withdrawal, as expected, from Bethlehem later in the week. Is this incident, another incident happened, that will definitely have an effect on this process. So we'll keep an eye on that.

COSTELLO: Got you.
