Hamas quashes small pro-unity rally in Gaza

A Hamas security man surveyed the scene on Monday - 10 activists drawn by a Facebook page invitation to a Gaza rally for Palestinian unity. "Where's the revolution?" he asked with a note of sarcasm.


Within minutes, security forces of the enclave's ruling Islamist movement moved into Gaza's main square. Witnesses said one of the security men punched the organiser of the rally and the other nine protesters obeyed orders to disperse. "We are a group of independent youth. The Egyptian and the Tunisian revolutions moved us and gave us a feeling youth can make a change," the organiser, Ahmed Arar, told reporters before the gathering was broken up. (Reuters)
