Blast Prompts Israeli Ban on Palestinian Boats off Gaza

A boat carrying two Palestinians explodes, killing both men and wounding four members of an Israeli naval patrol off the coast of the Gaza Strip. Israel bans Palestinian boat traffic in the area. And an army probe of a U.N. aid worker's death on the West Bank is blamed on an accidental shooting by an Israeli soldier. NPR's Peter Kenyon reports.
