Palestinians chant for revenge during the funeral for seven people killed in an Israeli air strike outside the Qassam Mosque in the Nusseirat refugee camp, central Gaza Strip (news - web sites), Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2003. The seven, ranging in age from 11 to 49, were bystanders crowding around a car Monday after it was targeted by a first missile, Palestinian security officials said. The Israeli military said it believed three of the dead were militants in the car. However, the vehicle did not take a direct hit, and witnesses said the wanted men esacped. (AP Photo/Hatem Moussa)
