Captured IDF soldier, Cpl. Gilad Shalit, is still alive, the visiting Egyptian foreign minister, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, said Wednesday. Aboul Gheit said Egypt is working to win the release of Shalit, who was captured in a cross-border raid by Hamas in Gaza in June. Egypt is acting as a mediator between Israel and Hamas. "We are working to release him and we know that he's alive," Aboul Gheit told a news conference.
