Report: Hamas bans Gaza students from studying abroad

A Palestinian human rights group is condemning Gaza's militant Hamas rulers for preventing teenage students with scholarships to study in the US from leaving the territory.


The Palestinian Center for Human Rights said in a statement Wednesday that Hamas is refusing to allow eight students leave Gaza. It said the students were granted AMIDEAST scholarships, a program that educates talented teenagers from the Middle East and North Africa for a year in the US. (AP)
