Hamas police disperse demo by Salafist mothers

GAZA CITY (AFP) -- Hamas police on Saturday dispersed a protest in the Gaza town of Rafah by Salafist women to demand the release of members of the hardline Islamist movement, an AFP correspondent said.

Witnesses said the women, who numbered around 30, were veiled and accompanied by children, carried a banner which read: "Where are human rights organisations when our children are arrested?"

Police dispersed the demonstration without incident. more
