Gaza man killed in 'explosion'

Oct. 31, 2011 4:26 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 31, 2011 4:26 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A 26-year-old man was killed in an explosion in northern Gaza on Monday, medics said.

Mohammad al-Ghourani died in a blast in his Jabaliya refugee camp home, medics said.

A Ma'an reporter said al-Ghourani was handling a homemade explosive device when it detonated.

Three of his relatives were transferred to hospital for shock, medics said.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights said three children were injured last Wednesday when a suspicious object they were playing with exploded in northern Gaza town Beit Hanoun, which it blamed on "the state of misuse of weapons plaguing the Occupied Palestinian Territory."
