Haniya Elected New Hamas Leader

A longtime senior Hamas official was elected on Saturday to replace the Palestinian resistant group’s outgoing head, Khaled Meshaal, an official in Meshaal’s office told CNN. Hamas’ Shura Council chose Ismail Haniya to become the new leader. Haniya is a onetime Palestinian prime minister based in Gaza controlled by the group for the past 10 years. The council will decide whether Haniya will follow the example of Meshaal and live outside Gaza.  Meshaal has been living in exile in Qatar and once resided in Syria.
