One of Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh's bodyguards was killed during the six-hour standoff between Hamas and Fatah forces at the Rafah crossing on Thursday night, Palestinian sources reported. Eighteen people, including Haniyeh's son and another bodyguard, were wounded during the fighting, which started after Israel refused to allow Haniyeh back into the Gaza Strip with the $35 million he was carrying in his luggage.
