The military court extended the detention of the Palestinian finance minister, Omar Abdel Razek and several other Hamas officials for two more weeks, the army said on Tuesday. Razek is among dozens of top Hamas officials rounded up by Israel after Hamas members kidnapped Cpl. Gilad Shalit in June. In all, more than two-dozen Hamas lawmakers and five Cabinet ministers were rounded up. Four other government ministers were arrested, but later released.
