      Hamas Stops Pro-Bin Laden Salafi Protests in Gaza

      Salafi demonstrators in Gaza were blocked by Hamas police on Saturday from protesting last week's assassination of Al Qaeda terrorist founder Osama bin Laden.

      The Salafis – an Islamist group that has repeatedly challenged the rule of Hamas in Gaza – gathered in the main square of Gaza City. Hamas forces held them there and stopped the protesters from marching through the streets, instead ordering them to disperse.
