Photographer kidnapped in Gaza
A photographer from a French news agency has been kidnapped in Gaza, according to witnesses.

Agence France-Presse photographer, Jaime Razuri, a 50-year-old Peruvian national, was seized in Gaza on Monday by unknown armed men as he entered the agency's offices in Gaza City, AFP reported two witnesses as saying.

Hamman Al Faghawi, a translator with AFP, said: "We got out of the jeep. I heard the noise of weapons. I turned around and I saw two unmasked men. They pointed their weapons at Jaime and at me."

"They told me to shut up and took him away in a Subaru car," he said.

1. Update: Gaza hunt for seized photographer
Palestinian security forces in Gaza are searching for Jaime Razuri, an AFP photographer, a day after he was kidnapped by unknown armed men.

Razuri, 50, a Peruvian national, was abducted at the entrance of his office in the centre of Gaza City as he was returning from an assignment with a translator and a driver.

An AFP delegation met the head of Palestinian security services in Gaza late on Monday but there was no news on the identity of Razuri's abductors or their motives.
