Hamas sentences alleged collaborator to death

The Palestinian militant Hamas group has convicted a Gaza man on charges of spying for Israel and sentenced him to death.

Hamas announced the move Thursday, the latest in a secretive campaign to rid Gaza of alleged Israeli collaborators.

The campaign has underscored Hamas' deep fears about being penetrated by agents of the Jewish state.

Hamas says its military court sentenced Omar Kawari to death by a firing squad. It provided no other details.
