Masked gunmen abducted a well-known religious scholar from Hamas as he returned from evening prayers at a local mosque in Gaza City, his family and colleagues said. Ali Sharif, in his 70s, was snatched outside his home in the Sabra neighborhood, a Hamas stronghold. Sharif's daughter, who would not give her first name, said that when neighbors tried to rescue him, the kidnappers open fire, then bundled her father into a car and drove off.
