Christians targeted in Gaza

...just before dawn Friday, masked gunmen attacked the Gaza City premises of the YMCA and blew up its 8,000-volume library, according to Eissa Saba, the center's director. A second bomb was defused. A dozen gunmen overpowered two security guards and brought them to northern Gaza, where they were later released.

It was the latest attack on institutions associated with Christianity, attacks condemned by Hamas, Fatah and local nongovernmental organizations like the Palestinian Center for Human Rights. About 3,500 Christians, mostly Greek Orthodox, live in the Gaza Strip.
