Israeli soldiers have killed the 24-year-old Ahmed Muslamani, from the village of Tubas in the occupied West Bank, Palestinian officials say.

Dozens of locals attended a funeral procession for Muslamani, who was shot dead at a West Bank checkpoint.

The victim was shot in the chest and leg, said a Palestinian medical worker, who collected the body at the Israeli military checkpoint near the West Bank city of Nablus.

Earlier on Saturday, a 36-year-old Palestinian woman died one day after inhaling tear gas at an anti-apartheid wall protest in Bilin in the occupied West Bank.

Israeli soldiers have been using the prohibited deadly tear gas canisters against Palestinian protesters in recent weeks, reports say.

Tel Aviv began constructing the anti-apartheid wall in 2000. The International Court of Justice says the wall is illegal and should be taken down.
