Hamas on Saturday broke up a Salafist protest in Gaza against the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in a US raid in Pakistan this week.

Dozens of Salafists -- conservative Islamists who have clashed with Hamas -- gathered in Gaza City's main square holding up posters of bin Laden and chanting "We warn you America, we warn you Europe."

Some banners read "We are all your soldiers Osama" and "Osama is alive inside us".

Hamas police forces cordoned off the square, stopped protesters from marching through the streets and ordered them to leave.
