Official sources in Cairo said that Egypt had given Israel concrete evidence Tuesday that kidnapped soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit was alive. According to the sources, Shalit was being held in a hidden location in the PA. A London-Arab newspaper Ashark-El-Awsa reported that Egypt was making attempts to convince Israeli mediators and Shalit's captives to reach a prisoner exchange agreement. The newspaper claimed that an Israeli official was scheduled to arrive in Cairo to further negotiations in the following days.
