Dozens of Palestinian gunmen loyal to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas stormed the Nablus municipal building Sunday and gave the mayor, who is from the rival Hamas group - half an hour to shut down his offices. The gunmen, with assault rifles slung over their shoulders, entered the West Bank building and escorted some of the government employees outside. When the mayor refused to close the offices immediately, they gave him an extra 30 minutes to shut them down. The incident was the latest angry demonstration by supporters of Abbas' Fatah Party against comments made by Khaled Mashaal, Hamas leader abroad, accusing the president of treachery.
