Jan. 25, 2011 7:23 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 26, 2011 8:17 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas on Tuesday said Israeli border police at the Allenby crossing between the West Bank and Jordan denied a PLC member passage.

In a statement, Hamas said Nasser Abdul Jawad was detained at the border for a number of hours and told he could not pass from the West Bank into Jordan.

Jawad was elected to the Palestinian Legislative Council in 2006,

He was given no reason for being denied passage, the statement said.
