Palestinians face 'abuse' in criminal justice system

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip face "serious abuses" in the justice system, according to a report from pressure group Human Rights Watch (HRW).

The violations included arbitrary arrest, incommunicado detention, torture, and unfair trials, HRW said.

The Gaza Strip has been governed by the Islamist movement, Hamas, since it seized power there in 2007.
