Israel uses 'skunk bombs' against West Bank demonstrators

Israeli security forces have started to use liquid "skunk bombs" to disperse demonstrators in the occupied West Bank, police said on Sunday.

They said border police used the new crowd-control method for the first time on Friday at the weekly demonstration near the Palestinian village of Nilin against Israel's separation barrier.

Use of the stinking liquid has been given the green light by medical and legal authorities, police said.
