The Palestinians' Fatah party, which controls the West Bank, says the movement will hold its two-decade overdue conference to choose new leadership on August 4, said a top official Sunday. Abbas Zaki, Fatah representative in Lebanon, said at the conclusion of a three-day meeting held by PA President Mahmoud Abbas in the Jordanian capital, that the group had agreed on the date, which is also Yasser Arafat's birthday. The group has not, however, agreed on a location, which they say must await the reconciliation talks with Hamas. A meeting to decide on the venue has been set for July 10, said participants.
