JERUSALEM (AP) -- The Israeli military says it has opened an investigation into a soldier who fatally shot a Palestinian in the West Bank last week.

The military initially said that the man had run toward a military post before he was shot and killed Friday. Israeli media subsequently reported that the man was unarmed.

The military announced the investigation on Monday but gave no further details. The Haaretz daily says the soldier is suspected of involuntary manslaughter.
