Palestinian gunmen attacked a U.N.-run school in the Gaza Strip. A
group of assailants, described as Muslim extremists, threw grenades at a
sports event at the United Nations Relief and Works Agency school in
Rafah on Sunday, killing one and wounding six, including
at least one student.
Palestinian officials said the attackers were
religious vigilantes with suspected al-Qaida links who were outraged at
the coed studies in the school. A recent slew of
Palestinian attacks on UNRWA and other international targets in Gaza has
prompted many foreigners to flee the territory.
