Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas met Wednesday with the 11 Palestinian prisoners who were freed and exiled to Turkey as part of the deal to release kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit from Hamas captivity in October, AFP reported.

Abbas met the prisoners at his hotel in Ankara before leaving Turkey after a three-day visit.

Among the prisoners Abbas met with was Amna Muna, a female prisoner who lured 16-year-old Ofir Rahum to Ramallah where he was murdered in 2001.
