Brother of Palestinian lawmaker kidnapped in Gaza
12/18/2006
Masked gunmen kidnapped the brother of a Fatah parliamentarian in northern Gaza on Monday evening, despite a shaky truce agreement to end the factional violence, the man's family said. Alaa Yaghi, a member of the Palestinian parliament from Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah faction, said his brother was snatched from the Fatah-affiliated charity association where he worked. Yaghi blamed Hamas for the kidnapping, saying it was carried out "as a message to me and the movement." Hamas officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
