Some 3,000 police officers from the Palestinian Authority are to redeploy to as part of a unity agreement between rival movements Fatah and Hamas, a Palestinian official said today.

"According to the agreement, the Palestinian will be able to take over all its roles in the civil and security sectors, for which 3,000 Palestinian policemen from the .... Palestinian Authority will be redeployed," the official involved in the talks told AFP on condition of anonymity.

The figure is a fraction of the number of police officers employed by Hamas, the Islamist movement that runs the Strip.
