      Gaza City: A US congressman is visiting rights groups and students in
      the Gaza Strip.

      Keith Ellison met earlier with Israeli security officials and
      Palestinian officials in the West Bank.

      A US Consulate spokesman in Occupied Jerusalem, Frank Finver, said the
      Minneapolis Democrat's Gaza visit would last a day.

      The territory under Hamas rule was devastated by last year's Israeli
      offensive against the militant group. A blockade meant to cut off
      weapons smuggling has further weakened the economy of the impoverished
      Strip.

      Hamas official Ahmed Yousef said the group welcomes all visitors but
      that it had not been informed of Ellison's visit. The U.S. considers
      Hamas a terrorist organization.

      Ellison is the first Muslim Congressman.
