GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- A Palestinian man was killed Sunday in gunbattles between militiamen from the ruling Hamas Party and security personnel loyal to President Mahmoud Abbas, hospital officials said.

The man's identity was not immediately known. At least 11 other people were wounded, including a man who was clubbed by militiamen.

The gunfight took place near the Palestinian parliament building, where hundreds of protesters gathered to demonstrate against long-overdue government salaries. Hamas deployed its militia across the Gaza Strip on Saturday to break up any protests.
