(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Israeli officials on Monday (February 25) called on the Palestinian Authority to control demonstrators, as tensions ran high hours before a funeral for a Palestinian detainee who died in an Israeli prison. Scores of Palestinian youth clashed with Israeli security forces in the West Bank village of Beit Ainoon, near Se'eer where a funeral for 30-year-old Arafat Jaradat was to be held. Palestinian officials say he died after being tortured. Israel said an autopsy, carried out with a Palestinian coroner present, was inconclusive and that injuries, such as broken ribs, could have been caused by efforts to revive him. The death of Jaradat and an extended hunger strike by four inmates have flared tension across the occupied West Bank, where stone-throwing protesters clashed with Israeli soldiers.
