According to this story from the Palestinian Newsagency Ma'an [Masked gunmen abduct Ma'an journalist] a Ma'an journalist was kidnapped at the weekend and held for 12 hours by masked gunmen who "demanded to use his Ma'an password to post a fictitious news story, aimed at stirring up trouble between Ma'an and the Palestinian factions and security services." The article concludes that the agency is "confident that the Palestinian security will arrest the perpetrators and bring them to justice in the interests of press freedom."

Fictitious news stories are bread and butter for the Palestinian thugs who operate in both the West Bank and Gaza and I really doubt that Palestinian security is going to solve this intriguing case any time soon.
