From Jerusalem Post, via Little Green Footballs:
Hamas has begun operating a “vice and virtue commando” in the Gaza Strip to safeguard Islamic values, Palestinian security officials and residents told The Jerusalem Post.

The new force, called the Anti-Corruption Unit, is believed to be behind the gruesome murder over the weekend of Yusra al-Azzami, a 22-year-old university student from the northern Gaza Strip. Her “crime” was that she was seen in public with her fiance.
Despite horrific crimes like this, sections of the left, led in the UK by the SWP, support Hamas as a leading part of 'resistance'.

Update: Cosmic X: Why Was Yusra al-Azzami Murdered?
