A crowd on Saturday looted the home of former, long-time Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, destroying one of the strongest symbols of the Fatah movement in the Gaza Strip, witnesses and Fatah officials said. Fatah officials said the crowd took furniture, wall tiles and Arafat's personal belongings. The villa had been empty since Arafat left for the West Bank in 2001 shortly after the outbreak of the second Intifada. He died in France in late 2004. Hamas seized control of Gaza this week after it defeated Fatah forces in five days of fighting.
