Fatah gunmen kidnapped a deputy Cabinet minister from Hamas on Tuesday, in response to Hamas attacks on Fatah strongholds in Gaza. The fate of Deputy Transportation Minister Faidi Shabaneh, 46, was not known. Members of al Aksa Martyrs Brigades, said Shabaneh was not harmed, denying claims on Hamas Web sites that he had been killed by his captors. Hamas said Shabaneh was seized by gunmen after he emerged from his office in Ramallah.
