Palestinian schoolgirl shot dead by Israeli soldiers in Gaza

10:56 Monday January 31st 2005

Israeli soldiers have shot and killed a 10-year-old Palestinian girl while she was in a classroom in the southern Gaza Strip today.

Officials said the girl was hit in the head by gunfire from an Israeli tank in the Rafah refugee camp. A second girl was also wounded in the incident.

Several Palestinian schoolchildren have been killed in similar shootings in the past number of years.

The Israeli military insists they are all accidental killings resulting from gunfire aimed at legitimate targets.
