GAZA - A Palestinian security official on Monday said Hamas security forces detained three suspects in connection with the murder of Italian activist Vittorio Arrigoni in Gaza.

The security forces exchanged gunfire with the suspected killers during an operation in Gaza to capture the fugitives, a security source and witnesses said.The gunfight in the Nuseirat refugee camp was briefly interrupted by an attempt to negotiate the surrender of the al Qaeda sympathizers believed to have killed Arrigoni, who was found strangled on Friday.

The talks failed and an explosion was heard as shooting resumed between the Hamas forces and the gunmen who were holed up in a four-story building in Nuseirat, a refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip.
