PA police storm government building Masked Palestinian police sealed off a main road in the central Gaza town of Khan Younis on Saturday and stormed a government building in anger over not receiving their salaries from the Hamas-led government. The gunmen surrounded the building, where town councilors have their offices, taking positions on the roof and on balconies and firing in the air. The Palestinian Chamber of Commerce also has offices there. Pilgrims flock to J'lem for Good Friday Thousands of Christian pilgrims filled the narrow streets of Jerusalem's Old City on Good Friday, retracing the route that Jesus followed on his way to the crucifixion. The pilgrims packed the Via Dolorosa, the path winding through the walled Old City where tradition says Jesus walked as he carried his cross on the path to his death. The processions all ended at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, which marks the site of the crucifixion. Eda Haredit protests Valis detention Haredim blocked traffic in Jerusalem's Mea Shearim neighborhood once again on Friday in protest of the continued detention of Eda Haredit member Yisrael Valis for allegedly abusing and killing his three-month-old son Raphael.
