    from ABC Online;

    Palestinian militants have released the kidnapped governor of the West Bank town of Jenin after the direct intervention of Palestinian President Yasser Arafat. An armed group connected to Mr Arafat has claimed responsibility for the abduction. Witnesses say acting Governor Haidar Irsheed was dragged from his Jenin home by masked gunmen, beaten, then kidnapped. An armed offshoot of Yasser Arafat's Fatah movement, the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, claimed responsibility for the abduction, accusing the acting Governor of stealing public money and collaborating with Israel. But after receiving a telephone call from Mr Arafat the kidnappers agreed to release Governor Irsheed. The abduction is believed to be the first by a Palestinian militant group against a senior figure in the Palestinian Authority.
