Israeli troops have shot dead a Palestinian teenager carrying a fake gun in the West Bank city of Hebron.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the youth had pulled out a fake pistol which "border police" thought was real, so they opened fire.

The boy was named locally as 16-year-old Mohammed Ziad Sulaima, Reuters reported.
