Egyptian and Palestinian sources on Wednesday denied reports that German mediator Gerhard Konrad arrived in Cairo in an effort to reach a prisoner exchange deal between Israel and Hamas for kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, according to Israel Radio.

An Egyptian source told London-based based newspaper Al Hayat that the report was baseless and Konrad was not involved with the talks anymore. 

Senior Palestinians sources confirmed the Egyptian's comments and said that "the German mediator's role has completely ended, and he won't return again."
