Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas traveled to the Gaza Strip, his first visit since a deadly outbreak of factional violence this month.

Abbas, who spends most of his time at his headquarters in the West Bank town of Ramallah, arrived to celebrate the Eid al-Adha holiday, his office said. He criticized Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who he said had broken his promise to release Palestinian prisoners before the Islamic holiday.
