Palestinian police traded gunfire with unknown assailants at the prime minister's compound in downtown Ramallah on Wednesday, a Reuters witness said.

The exchange in the West Bank city lasted around a minute, and the sound of ambulances could be heard shortly thereafter. There were no immediate reports of casualties.

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad was away touring the southern West Bank, near Hebron, at the time.
