Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Monday discussed the conflicts in Darfur, Sudan, and the situation in the Palestinian territories, Mubarak said. "This visit comes as part of ongoing consultations between me and President Gadhafi," Mubarak told The Associated Press at Tripoli airport as he was leaving after a visit to Libya of less than four hours. The two leaders agreed to support Syria in face of international pressure and emphasized the importance of containing disputes and tension between Hamas and Fatah in the Palestinian territories, said a Libyan official on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issues.
