Media attacked in Gaza

Gunmen claiming to be from the ruling Hamas security forces broke into news offices of Reuters, CNN and NHK. Besides confiscating equipment the men struck one Reuters journalist on the arm with a metal bar and threatened to throw another out of the window of the high-rise block.

The Hamas government denied it authorized the attack.
