Egyptian Diplomat Is Abducted by Gunmen

From Times Wire Reports

Masked gunmen kidnapped an Egyptian diplomat in an attack that underscored the spiraling lawlessness in the Gaza Strip, and showed that even an official from one of the Palestinians’ most important allies is not immune from the violence.

Hussam Almousaly was the first diplomat to be taken in a recent spate of abductions.

Israeli troops shot and killed three Gaza militants during attacks, bringing the death toll of militants over the last week to 14.
