Palestinian gunmen with ties to the ruling Fatah faction stormed an election building in the southern Gaza Strip on Wednesday, forcing most of the workers to flee, election officials and witnesses said. About 40 gunmen from the Al-Aksa Martyrs' Brigades entered the building while firing in the air, the officials and witnesses said. The gunmen, loyal to Alaa al-Hams, a fugitive arrested late Tuesday by Palestinian police who suspect he was involved in the kidnapping last week of three British citizens, took up position in the building. Most of the election officials fled.
