Hamas police seize thousands from Gaza bank

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip  — Palestinian bank officials say Hamas police have seized thousands of dollars from a Gaza branch.
Sunday's raid is the latest example of tensions between Gaza's Hamas rulers and the Palestinian Authority that runs the West Bank.
A Palestinian Authority-supervised body ordered the Islamic Palestinian Bank to freeze the assets of a charity accused of money laundering.
Mahmoud al-Ramah of the bank estimated the police took $16,000 after Hamas-run court in Gaza declared the move illegal. A Hamas statement said police seized the money to implement the court ruling to return the cash to the charity.
