Official worried as bullets penetrate Bethlehem Catholic university
    The vice chancellor of Catholic-run Bethlehem University expressed 'grave concern' after an Israeli bullet shot through a university residence.
    Br David Scarpa had just got out of his chair next to the window on Wednesdday, when the bullet tore through the window and, after ricocheting around his front office, landed on the floor next to his computer. Another bullet was found near the Social Cultural Centre of the university the following day, and a classroom was hit by gunfire during a confrontation a few days earlier.
    The university is less than a kilometre mile from Rachel's Tomb, where clashes between Israelis and Palestinians occur.
