death. Ibrahim Kandil, 70, of a village near Ramallah in the occupied West
Bank of the Jordan River, found his father lying dead in a field near his
home, the donkey's teeth-marks on his body, the radio said. Police believe
the elder Kandil, whose age was not reported, was trying to bridle the
animal when it broke free, pushed him to the ground, and bit him to death.
Police are searching for the donkey. O
