Police said the first time border force was involved was after the man had been found and an ambulance called. Mickey Rosenfeld, the Israeli police spokes-man, said the injured man had been dragged by a donkey but added: "There was an internal investigation which cleared the border police of any involvement whatever in this individual's death."
This happened near Bethlehem, I gather.
There are a couple of hair-raising/heart-rending stories about what is happening around Bethlehem in today's Globe and Mail.
For one thing, there is a map, showing how the Wall has been closed, jutting into the town and stealing from the people of Bethlehem much of their agricultural land and olive groves, all in order to protect a couple of illegal Israeli settlements.
Another article discusses the economic ruin of Bethlehem since it has been turned into a "prison" - the term used by many, including the RC patriarch from Jerusalem. Christian pilgrims have become fearful of visiting Bethlehem in the first place or staying overnight because of the Wall, because of the possibility it could be closed at any time, even more fearful, apparently, than they were just after the invasion (see the G&M for figures). And the people have been cut off from their fields and groves.
