Dozens of unpaid security men burnt tires and closed off roads leading to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' home in Gaza City to demand wages on Saturday. Plumes of smoke wafted above the upper-class area, where 50 to 60 men stood on junctions leading to Abbas' home in Gaza City, where they burnt tires, and stopped cars from passing through. The men work for National Security, a security apparatus Abbas controls.
