QALANDIA REFUGEE CAMP, West Bank (AP) - A Palestinian official says planned peace talks with the Israelis scheduled for Monday have been called off following a deadly clash in the West Bank.

Israeli soldiers killed three Palestinians Monday during clashes outside Jerusalem.

The Palestinian official says the Palestinians decided to postpone Monday's meeting to protest the killings. He says the Palestinians are also upset about an Israeli announcement on Sunday pushing forward with new settlement construction in east Jerusalem.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.

It was not immediately known when peace talks would resume.
