An Egyptian newspaper report Saturday claims that Former US presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter may visit the Gaza Strip to broker a deal for the release of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit and to discuss the blockade on the Strip.

According to the report in <i>Al Mesryoon</i>, Washington, Cairo and Hamas are in talks to facilitate the visit. Such a visit, the paper noted, would signify greater openness by the Obama Administration towards Hamas, as previous contacts have been held unofficially and at a much lower level.
