The German diplomat negotiating captive soldier Gilad Schalit's release reportedly met with Hamas official Sheikh Hassan Yousouf in an Israeli prison, London-based newspaper Al-Hayat reported on Thursday.

A Hamas official also told Al-Hayat that Israel refused to release 15 senior Palestinian officials, including Ahmed Sadaat and Marwan Bargouti, after their names had already been approved.
