Palestinian militants, security forces reach truce:
Palestinian security forces and militants agreed to a truce Wednesday to end violent clashes in a flash point West Bank city, local officials said. The violence highlighted deep disenchantment with the internationally backed Palestinian leadership. The clashes erupted after an arrest raid by Palestinian security against local militants. The two sides exchanged fire as angry residents pelted an armored jeep with objects and chased it away. One man was reported dead. The violence was reminiscent of the way Palestinians typically protest Israeli troops.
