The EU takes a first look Monday at how it can contribute to an international effort to maintain humanitarian aid to the Palestinians by circumventing their Hamas-led government. The 25 EU foreign ministers will debate how the EU should funnel future funds to the Palestinians - 1.4 million of whom live off food aid - and to what areas, diplomats said. They said the EU wants to move quickly and also see Israel restore payments of US $50 million a month in taxes it collects on imports headed for the Palestinian areas.
