GAZA CITY — The Arab world's top diplomat arrived in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, to push for the lifting of a three-year-old blockade of the territory.

Arab League chief Amr Moussa's visit was the first by a senior Arab official since Hamas seized the territory in 2007.

He will meet with Gaza's top Hamas official, in a boost for the widely shunned movement.
