Hamas forces attempt to capture refugees responsible for killing Italian pro-Palestinian activist Vittorio Arrigoni last Friday

Security forces from the Hamas-run government exchanged gunfire on Tuesday with the suspected killers of a pro-Palestinian Italian activist during an operation to capture the fugitives, a security source said.

Members of the Hamas security forces had surrounded a building in the Nuseirat refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip in the operation to capture the al Qaeda sympathisers believed to have killed Vittorio Arrigoni, found strangled on Friday.
