NABLUS, West Bank, AP – Israeli troops clashed with hundreds of Palestinian stone throwers in the West Bank city of Nablus on Wednesday, firing tear gas and rubber-coated steel pellets to push back the crowds.

Earlier Wednesday, troops in about 30 jeeps searched for wanted Palestinian militants in the city and briefly detained four female relatives of suspects, Palestinian security officials said.
