A French reporter was wounded by Palestinian gunfire in Gaza city Sunday afternoon, according to a Palestinian translator who was with the journalist when he was shot. Didier Francois, a reporter for the French daily Liberation, was hit in the leg by gunfire, said Raja Abu Daka, a Palestinian translator who accompanied the French journalist. Clashes have been raging in Gaza between Fatah and Hamas, rival factions vying for control over the Palestinian government. Abu Daka did not say who had fired the shot that hit Didier. The French reporter's life was not in danger, Abu Daka said, and he was expected to be taken out of Gaza for medical treatment in Israel later Sunday.
