MWC News:: Gaza rights groups accuse Hamas of abuses

06-02-2012 00:00

Palestinian rights groups say masked Hamas police beat and detained members of the Gaza Strip's tiny Shia Muslim community during a religious commemoration last week.
It was the first claim of harassment by a group of Shia worshippers against the territory's rulers, who are Sunni Muslims.
Hamas officials denied the allegations.
Hamas is believed to enjoy close ties with Iran, the Shia Islamic republic.
