    Islam Shahwan, a police spokesman, said the second bomb exploded near the home of Marwan Abu Ras, the Hamas official responsible for publishing religious edicts, in Gaza.

    No one was reportedly hurt.

    Shahwan said two members of the Fatah movement of Mahmud Abbas, the Palestinian  president, had been arrested in connection with the second blast, and that one of them had placed the bomb.
