Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa canceled Tuesday a plan for an emergency meeting to resolve violence between Palestinians factions, citing meditation efforts to end the bloody rift. Moussa, who had called for the emergency meeting of Arab foreign ministers on Monday, said he shelved the plans after conferring with President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority.
