Gaza bombs spark new row between Palestinian factions

At least 10 blasts hit the homes and cars of several Fatah officials, triggering a furious response from the party which placed the blame squarely on Hamas, the de facto rulers in Gaza. Palestinian prime minister Rami Hamdallah, who had been due to visit Gaza on Saturday with new EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini, promptly cancelled his trip. One of the explosions targeted a stage in western Gaza City set up for a ceremony marking the 10th anniversary on Tuesday of the death of veteran Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, who founded Fatah.
