Hamas Kidnaps, Tortures PA Security Agent

(Jerusalem Post) Khaled Abu-Toameh - Muhammad al-Sheikh, 38, a member of the PA's Preventive Security Service in Gaza, said on Saturday he was kidnapped last Wednesday by six armed Hamas activists and brutally tortured. "They beat me with chains, clubs, and pipes," he said. "I wasn't able to sleep for two days because of the pain. They told me, 'You and [PA Security Minister Muhammad] Dahlan are traitors and Israeli spies.'" In another incident on Saturday, PA security officials said that two Palestinian gunmen were killed in Tulkarm in clashes between rival factions of Al-Aksa Brigades.
