Israeli police pull over Palestinian PM's convoy

Israeli police said they briefly pulled over the Palestinian prime minister's convoy for reckless driving in the West Bank, sparking a diplomatic spat.

While police said they quickly allowed the convoy to pass, the Palestinians said the incident was a violation of their rights.

Police spokesman "Micky Rosenfeld" said Rami Hamdallah's car and another vehicle were stopped Tuesday for speeding and "overtaking every vehicle in a dangerous way."

Rosenfeld said after identifying Hamdallah, police immediately allowed the cars to continue on. However, the two drivers face police questioning.

Ehab Bseiso, a spokesman for Hamdallah, said the incident "shines a light on the many violations committed against Palestinians every day".

The Palestinians have autonomy in parts of the West Bank, though Tuesday's incident occurred in an area under Israeli control.
