Troops detained 10 Israelis on Saturday as they joined a commemoration in the flashpoint West Bank city of Hebron for 29 Palestinian worshippers killed by a Jewish extremist in 1994. Some 200 people, most of them Palestinians, took part in the anniversary demonstration which was dispersed after some protesters threw stones at troops, an army spokeswoman said. It came with tensions running high in the Hebron region after scores of Palestinians were killed in a new upsurge of violence since last October.
