Palestinians launch Hamas-Fatah unity rally in Gaza

GAZA - Some 500 Palestinians, answering a rallying call on Facebook, demonstrated on Monday in Gaza's main square for reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah.
"The people want to end the division," the crowd chanted as Hamas police watched from the sidelines.
Youth groups that promoted the event on Facebook, a social networking site, said they hoped thousands would join a wider demonstration scheduled for Tuesday in Gaza's Square of the Unknown Soldier and similar rallies in the occupied West Bank.
