Hamas has announced that it will try Fatah activists who managed to leave the Gaza Strip for a Bethlehem conference without obtaining permission, AFP quoted a statement made by the Gaza Justice Ministry as saying Saturday. "Those who left for the conference in Bethlehem will be put to trial the moment they return to the Strip," the statement said. Some two dozen Fatah activists have sneaked out of the Gaza Strip, including a woman who said she hitched a ride with farmers on a donkey cart on Friday to get past Hamas troops at a border checkpoint.
