Apparent arsonists burned two cars in Ramallah on Saturday belonging to the Arab satellite TV station Al-Jazeera, the network's Jerusalem bureau chief said. The cars, one belonging to Al-Jazeera's Jerusalem bureau chief, Walid Omari, were parked in a lot outside the TV station's office in Ramallah. Thick smoke billowed from the parking lot, covering the eight-story high-rise. "The fire is definitely arson," Omari told The Associated Press, but stopped short of accusing anyone. In their growing battle, Fatah and Hamas have both accused Al-Jazeera of bias. Fatah and Hamas are vying for control of Palestinian security, the battle erupting at times into gun fights in the streets of Gaza.
