EU ruling to keep Hamas on terrorism blacklist 'outrageous'

In an interview with Al Jazeera, Ahmed Yousef, a Hamas spokesman, explained why his group believes the EU ruling is 'outrageous'.

    The highest court in the European Union has ruled that Hamas should remain on the EU's terrorism blacklist. The decision by the European Court of Justice overturns a ruling from three years ago.

    A lower court then said the EU relied on media reports rather than its own investigations to keep the Palestinian group, which has controlled Gaza for the past 10 years and fought three wars with Israel, on the list.
