    Fatah-linked group violates cease-fire, killing Romanian worker (UPDATE)
    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    A Romanian construction worker was killed Monday in a Palestinian shooting attack in the West Bank, only a day after the three largest Palestinian factions said they would observe a temporary truce, the Israeli military said.

    The Al Aksa Martyrs' Brigades, a militia affiliated with Yasser Arafat's ruling Fatah movement, claimed responsibility for the shooting near the West Bank village of Yabed.

    "We do not agree with the cease-fire," a group of militiamen from the West Bank town of Jenin said in a statement. "This is our first action. This is the
    beginning."

    The militia consists of bands of gunmen who do not
    recognize a central authority _ unlike the armed wings of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the other signatories to the three-month truce.

    The victim was a Romanian worker involved in road
    construction by Israel. The worker was driving in a truck when he was shot in the head, the army said.

    Palestinians have carried out dozens of shootings
    on West Bank roads in the past 33 months of fighting.
