    A Palestinian Authority offical said Mahmoud Abbas, the president, had called for a search for Razuri.

     

    Media watchdog Reporters Without Borders called for the rapid release of the photographer and criticised Palestinian authorities for their role in an increasing number of Gaza abductions.

       

    Six foreign journalists were kidnapped in the Gaza Strip in 2006, RSF said. All were released quickly and safely apart from a crew from US Fox News that was held for two weeks.

     

    About 20 foreigners, including the journalists, have been kidnapped in more than a year in Gaza.

     

    Rocket attacks

     

    Shortly after Razuri's abduction, Palestinian fighters attacked the Gaza Strip's main cargo crossing with mortar fire, lightly wounding an Israeli lorry driver.

     

    The Israeli army said the mortar attack on the Karni crossing hit a lorry that was delivering building materials to Gaza.
