Independent – Britain and US complicit in Jericho raid, says Abbas: Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority, condemned the armed Israeli raid on Jericho’s prison as an “ugly crime that cannot be forgiven” yesterday and strongly implied Britain and the US had been complicit in it… In his second uncharacteristically strong denunciation of Britain and the US, Mr Abbas said that the Israeli force had arrived on Tuesday within 10 minutes of the three British monitors abandoning the jail. “I’m giving the facts,” he added. “They [the monitors] left at 9.20am and the Israelis came in at 9.30am. How can we explain that?”
