Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's office denied a report in Al Jazeera that shots were fired at his convoy in Ramallah on Tuesday night, Israel Radio reported. The shots, said his office, were fired by Palestinian Authority security officials in an attempt to stop the robbery of a car. Abbas was reportedly at his home during the time of the shooting.
