Armed men damaged a studio used by Al Jazeera television in the West Bank on Wednesday, witnesses said, linking the attack to the channel's coverage of documents that have embarrassed Palestinian leaders.

Four men carrying guns arrived at the studio in Nablus, operated by the Palestinian media company Palmedia, after Al Jazeera had used it to broadcast a live interview with a critic of the President Mahmoud Abbas's Palestinian Authority (PA).

Freedom of the press in Judea Samaria is controlled at gunpoint. Dictator Abbas doesn't like much criticism. Certain to be supported by the rest of the world, because the alternative is worse, he fears nothing.
