Breaking news - Hamas leader killed in blast from CNN

GAZA CITY, GAZA (CNN) -- Abdel Aziz Rantisi, the leader of the militant group Hamas in Gaza, was killed on Saturday in Gaza City when his car exploded, hospital officials said.

It is not clear if his car was attacked or was booby-trapped in the explosion

Rantisi was rushed to a hospital after the blast, where officials declared him dead.

He was appointed to head Hamas in Gaza after Hamas founder Sheikh Ahmed Yassin was killed in an Israeli missile strike in Gaza City.

The Israeli army is not commenting on the development.

Suicide attack
The move comes hours after a Palestinian suicide bomber launched an attack in the Erez industrial zone Saturday, killing a border police officer and wounding three others.

Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and Hamas claimed responsibility for that attack.

Bad day at big rock for the bad guys.

The bomber -- who was a mother of two -- staged the attack.

Does it get any sicker.
