Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will not announce any breakthrough in efforts to secure the release of captured soldier, Cpl. Gilad Shalit, when they meet in Egypt on Thursday, an Olmert aide said Wednesday. Egypt has been working to broker a deal between Israel and Hamas to free Shalit, captured in June by the group. A Hamas official on Sunday claimed progress toward such a deal, but both sides said at the time that nothing was final. "Gilad Shalit is not going to be freed tomorrow, there is not going to be a dramatic announcement," Olmert spokeswoman Miri Eisin told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "It will be discussed, but unfortunately we're not at that point yet."
