The Hamas-led Palestinian Authority government withdrew a controversial 3,000-strong private militia from the streets of Gaza on Friday, saying it wanted to reduce friction with Fatah. The move came on the second day of Hamas' talks with Fatah, aimed at halting violence and resolving the deadlock that has paralyzed the Palestinian government and frozen relations with most of the world.
