Hundreds of Palestinian security men loyal to President Mahmoud Abbas went on a rampage against the Hamas-led government Monday, riddling the parliament building and Cabinet offices in Ramallah with bullets before setting them ablaze in retaliation for an attack by Hamas gunmen in the Gaza Strip. Late Monday, Fatah gunmen briefly abducted a Hamas lawmaker, Khalil Rabei. Abbas, a Fatah movement moderate who was elected separately last year, has been locked in a bitter power struggle with Hamas.

Iran: Female protesters beaten

UAE: Child jockeys sent home

More than 1,000 child jockeys smuggled into the United Arab Emirates to race camels have been returned to their home countries, government officials said Monday. The country began enforcing a ban on jockeys younger than 18 last year after the State Department cited the country as a top destination for smuggled children who were being forced into camel riding. About 20 smugglers have been prosecuted for trafficking in child jockeys.
