A Hamas bomb maker was killed by other Hamas members in an apparent power struggle, Palestinian Authority officials said. The Palestinians had initially blamed Israel for the death of Mohiyedine Sharif, whose body was discovered riddled with bullet holes after a car bomb exploded in the West Bank town of Ramallah. Five Hamas members have been arrested in connection with the murder. Authorities are still searching for the gunman.
