Masked Palestinian gunmen kidnapped two foreign journalists, an American and a Briton, in the Gaza Strip ovenight in the latest sign of lawlessness in the coastal territory after Israel's pullout last month.

The two, both working for Knight Ridder newspapers, were seized by assailants who stopped their car near the town of Khan Younis and took them away at gunpoint, their Palestinian translator, Ziad Abu Mustafa, said.
Palestinian Interior Ministry spokesman Tawfiq Abu Khoussa said Palestinian security forces had mounted a search for them.

I hope they are released safely. I find it surprising they were travelling in the same car, as opposed to using separate cars for greater security.
