The head of the Palestinian mission in Peru has told protesters in Lima that the kidnapping of a Peruvian photographer in the Gaza Strip is damaging the "just fight" of the Palestinian people.

Walid Abdel Rahim spoke to protesters on Friday outside the Palestinian mission. He condemned the kidnapping of Jaime Razuri.

The protesters called for Razuri's release. The crowd included Razuri's family and international journalists.

Razuri is an employee of the French news agency. Gunmen seized him on Monday outside the news agency's offices in Gaza City.

No group has claimed responsibility for the kidnapping.

Kidnappings are frequent in the Gaza Strip, but hostages are usually released within hours.
