Several thousand Palestinians attended the funeral Thursday of a 15-year-old shot dead by Israeli troops who apparently mistook him for a stone-thrower, while new details of the incident emerged.The incident sparked outrage and renewed debate over when Israeli forces should open fire.Israeli media reported two foreigners and one Israeli lightly wounded by stone-throwing. The stone-throwers were also said to have hurled firebombs at passing cars and poured oil on the road.The army initially said troops fired toward the assailants, but it has since revised its account, saying a probe has shown that Badran and the others were shot by mistake.
