RAMALLAH, April 18 (JMCC) - Hamas officials are looking for three men in connection with the killing of Italian activist Vittorio Arrigoni in the Gaza Strip last week, reports
the Associated Press.
Hamas' police posted pictures of the suspects on its official website on Monday.
The three men are said to belong to a small extremist Islamic group that is inspired by al-Qaida.
They include a former Hamas policeman and a Jordanian man who police say strangled Vittorio Arrigoni, an Italian activist who had been assisting local Palestinians in Gaza.
Arrigoni, 36, was found strangled to death several hours after a video surfaced saying that he had been kidnapped by a Salafi group.
