Deadly raid could derail peace talks

Palestinians warned Monday that restarted peace talks could be derailed after a deadly clash between Palestinian refugees and Israeli security forces. Three Palestinians were shot and killed at the Kalandia refugee camp near Jerusalem. Israeli security forces say they fired in self-defense after a raid to arrest a suspected militant sparked a riot among residents. Nabil abu Rudaineh, a spokesman for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, said the deaths would have "negative repercussions" for the peace process.
