Deputy Head of Hamas' political bureau Moussa Abu Mazrouq dismissed claims that a deal for swapping kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit has made any real progress, but said that Cairo is taking an active role in moving the deal forward, Israel Radio reported Monday.

Mazrouq added that the Egyptian government has taken an active role in formulating a prisoner-swap deal following the failure of the German mediator.
