The Palestinian minister in charge of the Settlements and Annexation Wall portfolio has died shortly after being hit and shoved by Israeli soldiers during a protest near Ramallah, witnesses and officials in the Palestinian Authority said.

A Palestinian witness at the protest said he saw an officer from the Border Police hit Minister Ziad Abu Ein with the butt of his gun and kick him.

Eyewitness reports that Abu Ein died after being hit by policeman have been disputed by the Israeli authorities.
