Hamas Leaders in Hiding as Noose Tightens

From Hamas Leaders in Hiding as Noose Tightens:

Hiding in friends’ houses with their mobile phones switched off, Palestinian prime minister Ismail Haniya and his ministers are behaving more like an underground organization than a government. Renouncing mobile phones for fear of being tracked down, changing vehicles several times a day, and using different routes are some of the measures being adopted, said a Hamas minister. He said Haniya as well as several key ministers and lawmakers had started sleeping in different locations every night. Coordination between Hamas officials is done essentially by fax and rare meetings held in secret locations determined at the latest possible moment.
