Hamas militants killed seven Palestinians suspected of collaborating with Israel in a public execution in a central Gaza square, witnesses and a Hamas website said.

The victims, their heads covered and hands tied, were shot dead by masked gunmen dressed in black in front of a crowd of worshippers outside a mosque after prayers today.

Another 11 people suspected of collaborating with Israel were killed by gunmen at an abandoned police station in Gaza earlier this morning, Hamas security officials said.
