Hamas burn 15 tonnes of Snickers bars in Gaza
MEMBERS of Hamas have been pictured throwing tonnes of Snickers bars onto a bonfire, following a recall by their manufacturer.
Sweet maker Mars announced a recall of its chocolate bars last month, after a piece of plastic was found in a Snickers bar.
The recall affected 55 countries and included products like Milky Ways, Mars bars and Celebrations.
The Associated Press reported that Hamas authorities hurled boxes of Snickers bars into a bomb crater today, before dousing them with diesel and setting them alight.
Three children from a nearby Bedouin camp managed to snatch some of the chocolate bars before they melted away.
