Palestinian gunmen demanding jobs in the Palestinian Authority, opened fire Thursday night on Interior Minister Nasser Yousef's house and the Palestinian Cabinet building, wounding a police officer, Palestinian officials said. The gunmen were from the ruling Fatah Party, Yousef's own movement. Fatah gunmen have been responsible for increasing lawlessness and chaos in Palestinian areas in recent months, kidnapping foreigners and attacking government buildings and officials in an effort to get government jobs or secure the release of jailed comrades.
