Journalists attacked in Gaza

Two 'Palestinian' stringers for Sky News and the BBC, and an independent reporter, were attacked by Hamas 'security forces' in the Gaza Strip as they covered a mass wedding.
The reports identified the three as local Sky News reporter Mohammad al-Mashharawi, BBC reporter Adnan al-Dorosh and Amer Abu Omar, a Gaza-based journalist.

The three were covering a mass wedding ceremony for 500 couples, reportedly sponsored by a local charity in coordination with Hamas.

Eyewitness reports said the three were severely beaten in a nearby playground.

The Palestine News Network said that al-Mashharawi was detained by Hamas and that his location is currently unknown. That report has not been corroborated by any independent source.

Gaza's Ministry of Interior issued a statement shortly after the incident condemning the attack.

The ministry said authorities will "open an investigation and punish the assailants."
But give them a 'state' and they won't do things like that anymore....

Not to worry. Hamas will arrest them as 'Zionist spies', execute them and the Beeb will cheer.
