Prime Minister Ariel Sharon storms out of a Sunday party meeting after his microphone was cut off before he could address the forum. Opponents of his Gaza pullout initiative reportedly sabotaged the sound system.

A stormy debate has erupted within Sharon's Likud party, fueled by the withdrawal from some settlement areas. The party is to vote Monday on a motion to hold its leadership election early.
