Palestine Papers spark fury in Ramallah

Angry protesters storm Al Jazeera's offices, as release of documents evoke mixed reactions.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has denounced Al Jazeera's release of the Palestine Papers.

And among Palestinians in the West Bank, opinions are divided. Supporters of the PA, angered by the release of the documents, questioned Al Jazeera's timing and motives in doing so.

Some opposed to the release of the papers even called for a protest.

Around 50 people stormed Al Jazeera's offices in Ramallah on Monday, attempting to burst through the door. But they were stopped when police were called to the scene.

James Bays reports from Ramallah.
