Gaza - Three Palestinians were killed in Gaza gunbattles between militants from the ruling Hamas party and security personnel loyal to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah, hospital officials said.  Militiamen from Hamas used guns, antitank launchers and grenades to break up police protests over unpaid government salaries, touching off gunbattles.  Dozens of supporters from Abbas’ Fatah Party retaliated by ransacking and torching the empty Cabinet building in the West Bank city of Ramallah.  At least 52 people were injured, including three schoolchildren and a cameraman for the Arab satellite TV station Al-Arabiya, hospital officials said. At least 15 of the wounded were civilians.
