Abbas to Investigate Shooting at Former PLO Min.'s Car

Chairman of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas has ordered an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the shooting at the vehicle of Fatah (PLO) member and former Minister of "Prisoner Affairs" Sufian Abu Zaida.

Abu Zaida is considered a close associate of Mohammed Dahlan, former head of the PA's internal security services, who quarreled with Abbas and was subsequently expelled from Fatah's ranks.
