Palestinian reconciliation summit postponed indefinitely
Palestinian officials say a high-profile meeting between the leaders of the rival Fatah and Hamas movements has been called off.

Tuesday's meeting between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal had been expected to name the prime minister over an emerging reconciliation government.

But officials from both sides acknowledge there are still disagreements over who the prime minister will be. They say the meeting has been postponed indefinitely.

The officials spoke Sunday on condition of anonymity pending a formal announcement.

2. They agreed long enough to get the Egypt gate open, right?
If they can work together once, they'll manage it again.

Of course, the gate benefits Hamas more than Fatah and maybe that's the subject of the latest quarreling.
