Yahoo! News - Abbas Orders Crackdown After Attack on W. Bank HQ: "RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas ordered a crackdown Thursday on Ramallah militants who defied demands that they lay down their arms under peace moves he had agreed with Israel.

Abbas took a tougher line after half a dozen gunmen from his own ruling Fatah faction fired at his Ramallah compound on Wednesday night while he was inside and then went on a rampage in the West Bank city, damaging several restaurants and shops.

The militants, among 26 fighters holed up at the battered presidential headquarters since Yasser Arafat gave them refuge at the height of a 4 1/2-year-old uprising, were then barred from the compound, a Palestinian official said.

In another sign of lawlessness plaguing the Palestinian territories, an angry crowd burned down tents used as offices by Palestinian police in the West Bank town of Tulkarm early on Thursday after police shot and wounded three suspects."
