Official: bullet hits Palestinian premier's office

A Palestinian government official says shots have been fired at the office of Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. No one was hurt.

The official says Fayyad was not in his office at sundown Wednesday when at least one bullet hit a building in his government compound.

The official says guards told him they heard several shots being fired in the air. It was not clear whether the shots were fired by gunmen on foot or in a car. The assailants escaped.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the incident with reporters.

The shooting took place at the time of the meal that breaks the dawn-to-dusk fast of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
