European Union foreign ministers are scheduled to gather in Paris on Tuesday evening for an urgent meeting on the crisis in Gaza, with France and Germany both seeking a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. Most of the European Union's 27 members are sending foreign ministers or their deputies to the talks, which are being hosted by French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, said ministry spokesman Romain Nadal. Germany said its foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, has spoken with Israeli, Egyptian and Syrian officials to sound out the possibility of a "humanitarian cease-fire" in Gaza. Steinmeier also discussed the situation with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday.
