Yassin laughs


Palestinian Hamas spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, laughs during
an interview by Associated Press at his home in Gaza city, Tuesday
March 9, 2004. Sheik Yassin said that rival Palestinian factions should
try to reach agreement on who will control the Gaza Strip after a possible
Israeli withdrawal, but stopped short of demanding a role for his group
and said that such an agreement could help prevent conflict and chaos
in Gaza.

Arabic on Palestinian flag, in the shape of a map of Israel, reads:
'Islamic resistance movement of Hamas, a gift to Sheikh Ahmed Yassin'.
