Palestinian Authority Cracks Down on Anti-Mubarak Rally

An international human rights group has criticized the Palestinian Authority (PA) for dispersing a demonstration in support of anti-government protests in Egypt.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) said on Monday that the organizers of the rally have been harassed by PA police.

The police also dispersed the photographers, who were trying to cover the event, HRW said.

Police pushed away 50 young protesters who gathered outside the Egyptian Embassy in Ramallah on Sunday afternoon to support the protests against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, AFP reported.'
