Police in the Gaza Strip have staged a protest at the new Hamas administration's failure to pay their salaries.
The off-duty officers said they were experiencing financial hardship and demanded their wages.
The protesters closed the main road between the south and the north Gaza Strip.
The protest was the first sign of serious discontent with the new government since it took office two weeks ago.
Some of the police protesters discharged their weapons in the air from the rooftop of a government building.
The new administration is facing a financial crisis as foreign donors have cut off aid.
