Now, Where Else Did They Burn Books?

Gunmen have attacked the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) in Gaza City and blown up its library, burning thousands of books, its director says.
Eissa Saba said 14 men overpowered the centre's two security guards before placing bombs in the library and main office. The latter did not explode.

Gaza, which is controlled by the Islamist group Hamas, is home to 3,500 Christians, mostly Greek Orthodox. Some have spoken of intimidation, but correspondents say Hamas itself has not shown hostility towards Christians since it threw its Fatah party rivals out of the coastal territory in June.

But what was the headline?

Yep, "militants":-

Goold old BBC.
