    Actor Juliano Mer-Khamis shot dead in Jenin

    The Israeli-Arab actor Juliano Mer-Khamis was shot to death in Jenin, Palestinian police in the West Bank announced.

    The actor was shot by a number of masked men who fired at him while he was sitting in his car near the theater he established, afterwards fleeing the scene, witnesses say. Mer-Khamis has resided in Jenin and Haifa alternately.

    Civil Administration officials say his body has been transferred to the Abu-Kabir Forensic Institute.
    Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad vowed a few hours later to find whoever had killed Mer-Khamis. "We must not ignore this heinous crime," he said, calling the murder "a gross violation of humane values and against the morals of our people".

    Fayyad added that he had ordered security services to catch the criminals. "We must treat this crime seriously," he said. "We must not allow, under any circumstances, security chaos."

    The 52-year old Mer-Khamis, a pro-Palestinian political activist born to a Jewish mother and Arab father, has previously received death threats after establishing the Freedom Theater at Jenin's refugee camp.

    Jenin Governor Kadura Musa denounced the murder, saying he "strongly condemns the murder of Mer-Khamis, who showed solidarity with the Palestinian people."

    Musa stated that Palestinian security forces have yet to obtain any information on the identity of the killers, but noted that a special committee will be set up to examine the circumstances of the incident.,7340,L-4052070,00.html
