Palestinian security forces said on May 21, 2006 they had foiled an attempt to kill one of President Mahmoud Abbas' top commanders, a day after one of his allies was wounded in a suspected assassination attempt. A Palestinian security officer said a bomb weighing 70kg (154lbs) was found outside the Gaza Strip home of Shbak, a member of Abbas' Fatah movement who is in charge of several branches of the Palestinian security services.
