Palestinian protesters have smashed windows and sprayed graffiti outside the headquarters of the Al-Jazeera TV channel in the West Bank.

Al-Jazeera aired late Sunday what it said were leaked documents showing that Palestinian leaders agreed to deep concessions on two of the thorniest issues in negotiations with Israel: Jerusalem and the fate of Palestinian refugees. Senior Palestinian official Yasser Abed Rabbo accused the station on Monday of misleading viewers to discredit Palestinian leaders.

About 250 protesters gathered outside Al-Jazeera' seventh floor office in Ramallah on Monday. A small group then broke security cameras, windows and station logos outside the building. The graffiti read "Al-Jazeera are spies," and "Al-Jazeera equals Israel." Police removed them and prevented people from entering the building.
