RAMALLAH, West Bank -- The Palestinian leadership banned civilians from carrying weapons and indicated on Thursday it would appoint a new interior
minister known for his hardline stance against militants, the latest in a series of steps to stop violence that have brought rare praise from Israeli
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
The ban on weapons signalled the Palestinian Authority's aim to take control of the streets from militants, who often overtly brandish their
automatic rifles and other arms and who have surpassed the authority's power in some neighborhoods and refugee camps.
