CAIRO - The Fatah movement of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and its Islamist rival Hamas ended two days of talks in Cairo on Tuesday without reaching a deal on setting up a new government.

But officials said the two sides had exchanged names of possible candidates for the position of prime minister and cabinet to run the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, instead of two separate administrations now running the two areas.
